"Thinking like a Geographer" (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

WARNING! This video contains explicit geographical scenes that may offend the non-worldy-wise.

Via Maree Whiteley
Hoolee Nan's insight:

Just for fun! It will be engaging video for children to begin to "think like a geographer". A good attention grabber and captivate the children's mind into the world of geography! The video gives examples of how in geography we label landmarks and events in our environment with unique terms. Overall, gives the perspective we are to hold when studying geography.

Anne-Laure Fréant talks about the importance of geographic knowledge in today's society. Kirk Goldsberry mentioned in “The Importance of Spatial Thinking” that “Harvard eradicated its Geography Department in the 1940′s, and many universities followed suit”. Indeed, not only has geography never been part of business programs, it gradually vanished from education fields that matter in prestigious schools, with no major revival since the 1940′s.

Hoolee Nan's insight:

A great way to do a virtual excursion with the classroom. Children can learn about landmarks, directions, the jargon in maps and other aspects of geography.

Simple logic really..."It is a way of thinking that crosses time and space at any possible scale to see and understand what is happening. It connects the dimensions of the world – societies, environment, economy, politics, finance, psychology… – by offering unique key concepts and theoretical tools."

AC Geography key concepts Place, Space, Environment and Interconnection...all in a set of form cups! Love it...
Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 24, 2014 11:19 AM

This is would be a nice craft to help younger students understand the concept of scale.  This adapts some of the ideas from the classic picture book "Me on the Map" by Joan Sweeney.
