The Geography and Literacy Connection

The Geography and Literacy Connection | Horn APHuG | Scoop.it
"What do you think of when you hear the word literacy? Depending on what you teach, chances are geography is not the first thought that comes to mind. But believe it or not, geography and literacy naturally share many similarities. And you can deepen students’ learning in both geography and literacy when they are integrated in the curriculum."

Masculinity, Bullying and the Locker Room

Masculinity, Bullying and the Locker Room | Horn APHuG | Scoop.it
The Dolphins have indefinitely suspended Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team because his actions [against Martin], if true, are morally abominable and potential violations of workplace laws. Still, there are NFL personnel people and active and former players who believe Martin handled the situation poorly by allowing it to spill out of the locker room and into the public.That's not to say they're defending Incognito. They're not in any way, shape or form. But they do believe there is an unwritten rule that player business should be handled in the locker room by the players themselves, particularly when the actions are as vile as those attributed to Incognito. "I think Jonathan Martin is a weak person," said one personnel man, speaking on the condition of anonymity. [do I even need to point out the hypocrisy of calling someone weak in character and NOT putting their name on the record?!?]

Geography of elearning

"I made this short video for the University of Edinburgh about my fascination with geography in elearning and how that still has a strong allure for some students (me). What does it mean to be somewhere in regards to the university? At what point does the university stop to be a physical space and becomes and emotional, psychical one?"

Guide to Earth Explorer for Landsat 8

Guide to Earth Explorer for Landsat 8 | Horn APHuG | Scoop.it
The Landsat Data Continuity Mission is now Landsat 8, and that means images are now public (woohoo!). NASA handed control of the satellite to the USGS earlier this year (May 30, 2013), and calibrated imagery is available through the Earth Explorer. Unfortunately, the Earth Explorer interface is a bit of a pain, so I’ve put together a guide to make it easier.
