Google Maps Smarty Pins

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 6, 2:05 PM

As stated in a review of Smarty Pins on Mashable, "Google unveiled a fun new game this week that tests players' geography and trivia skills.  Called 'Smarty Pins' the game starts players off with 1,000 miles (or 1,609 kilometers if they're not based in the United States), and asks them to drop a pin on the city that corresponds with the correct answer to a given question." 

 

This game is wonderfully addictive...I haven't enjoyed a mapping trivia platform this much since I discovered GeoGuessr.  How far can you get before you run out of miles?  

 

Tagsgoogle, fun, mapping, place, trivia.

What about the firewall? Creating virtual worlds in a public primary school using Sim-on-a-Stick

What about the firewall? Creating virtual worlds in a public primary school using Sim-on-a-Stick | K-12 Web Resources | Scoop.it
What was undertaken with this project is similar to other projects that have implemented virtual worlds in education. One of the main differences is that this project occurred in a regional public primary school using a content creation virtual world that could run on a network protected by a firewall. Using Sim-on-a-Stick gave this group of children the opportunity to discover ways to communicate ideas and be engaged in learning that they previously had not encountered. In term one 2012 it was a proof of concept in terms of the ease of use and the engagement of the children and the school community. As a result Sim-on-a-Stick will continue to be used in 2012 by this class and a number of other classes. The university has also started to implement the use of Sim-on-a-Stick with more of the pre-service teachers in a bid to introduce virtual worlds into all schools. A comment on the pre-service teacher’s blog sums up the experience “Sim-on-a-stick isn’t perfect but for now it is the only way we can access this type of technology at the school and we are having a brilliant time being innovative with its applications.”
