it's crazy and downright ignorant on how much bullying goes on, there is no point in it and people who do it must be heartless and dont care about anyone but their selfs .

The world map had no countries identified on it, but did have whimsical animals and people. What's the good of a map without, at minimum, national boundaries?

Earth's City Lights

Earth's City Lights | If the world were a village - global thoughts for global education | Scoop.it
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 image is pretty amazing to see. It shows what parts of the world are more modernized just by the lights seen from space. Looking at the U.S. and Europe, they are lit up very bright because they are richer parts of the world. As you look at places like Africa and some parts of South America, they are shown in darkness due to poorer areas in those regions.
Michelle Carvajal's comment, September 18, 2012 6:07 PM
I was impressed with the explanation of this picture especially for the simple fact that I thought it was a picture that depicted the population of certain areas of each country. Places like Africa, Brazil, areas of Mexico, and Southern US are not lit because of the areas of forest, desert and less population. Very nice picture. -Michelle Carvajal-

Each One Teach One, Each One Reach One | If the world were a village - global thoughts for global education | Scoop.it

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.

 

 

 

Thank you!!!

We are all different...we are all the same.

 

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.

100 People: A World Portrait

100 People: A World Portrait | If the world were a village - global thoughts for global education | Scoop.it

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.
