St. Augustine hit this saying out of the ball park. Sometimes when I try taking picutres of the sky or of a scene, I will delete the picture because it just isnt the same as in realy life. I really think that traveling gives people a reality shock when seeing new phenomena.

What i think this quote means is that you may think you know a lot about the world but until you go and travel to different places you will not fully understand the world. I also think it means that there is so many different things to experience on earth.

For the wanderlust in all of us.

How Can Geography Education be Profitable?

A short film on geo-literacy, knowing geography, and how it can make one a more profitable employee.

 

Instead of focusing on global and citizenship benefits,  this clip shows the marketable skills that geographic education gives students.  To read the transcript, and for added context, see: http://www.geographictravels.com/2012/05/geo-literacy-videos-by-national.html?goback=.gde_53689_member_115360670

Mapping Wikipedia

Geographic coverage of Wikipedia by language...

 

Mapping Wikipedia could be a helpful resource when learners want to research a specific continent, region, or country, but don't quite know how to get started.

 

Selecting a language and continent, region, or country in the Mapping Wikipedia search engine will lead them to many articles related to that selection. Those articles could get students started on a path toward further research.

 

Using the latest version of Chrome, FireFox, Opera, IE or Safari is recommended.

 

Beware! Some searches will require a large download. For example, a worldwide search of English articles is likely to take a long time and might crash older browsers.

 

Use the Stop button to cancel any search in progress.
