The GuardianHow have international experiences influenced you as a teacher?The GuardianLast year for the first time they decided to send a member of the teaching staff to experience their education system and to do some teaching.
NASA's Visible Earth catalog of NASA images and animations of our home planet...
This classic image is full of classroom applications. The first impulse of most students is to note that this image will show us where people live, where the cities are or some other comment that speaks to the magnitude of the population in the white areas. Let them analyze this for more time, and they'll notice that population isn't the whole story of this image. A place like India shines, but less brightly than the eastern part of the United States. I like to point out that South Korea appears to be an island (because North Korea is literally blacked out). Politics, development, affluence and population information are all embedded in this image. As with all maps, the more information you have about the place in question (in this case, Earth), the more meaningful information you can extract out of the map.
This scoop.it page for TGC will soon come to an end. The 2011-2012 cohort of the program is nearing its completion and, thus, the continuation of this specific scoop.it page seems no longer necessary.
HOWEVER, Mr. David Burton has created a new scoop.it page which will capture the essence of the TGC page. Please visit and follow "Each One Teach One, Each One Reach One". Here you will find "Resources to help teachers engage students. Includes resources to enhance educational technologies and global education in the classroom." It will host many issues relevant to the TGC mission without the content focus on the couteacherwhich inch the smaller teacher cohorts traveled. For international newscurrent events content, please also visit Mr. burton's page for Southmoore AP Human Geography.
If you're short on time but looking to learn about some of the coolest and most engaging web 2.0 tools, you're in luck! From Today's Meet to Socrative, there's plenty here for a teacher on the go but in the know.
I do wish there was more context than just the location so as to help gain a better understanding of the classroom and country being depicted. Nonetheless, it's still a good way to gain some insight into other locations around the world.
This is the truly global project that asks the children of the world to introduce us to the people of the world. We've seen videos and resources that ask the question, "if there were only 100 people in the world, what would it look like?" This takes that idea of making demographic statistics more meaningful one step further by asking student in schools for around the world to nominate some "representative people" and share their stories. The site houses videos, galleries from each continent and analyze themes that all societies must deal with. This site that looks at the people and places on out planet to promote greater appreciation of cultural diversity and understanding is a great find.
