Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 31, 2014 4:20 PM

This week I am in Cincinnati, OH, scoring the AP Human Geography exams.  Here you can find the digital newsletters that are intended for the AP readers to know about the upcoming events.  I will post future newsletters here as well. 


I also am teaching in Elmhurst College’s Graduate Certificate Program in Human Geography for AP.  They have recently announced some changes that will make it much more accessible and applicable for teachers.  They have added a Master’s Program in Applied Geospatial Sciences with Concentration in Human Geography as well as a non-credit (read, cheaper) option for the courses in the program as well.  Look into it!

Allan Tsuda's curator insight, May 25, 2014 9:21 PM

Unbelievable, tremendous resource. I wish I had this one growing up. It is a US gov site (EPA), and is for US geography. I'm betting you can search around for similar sites for other locales around the world. Great demo. Demo runs on Adobe Captivate. The demo took a little bit of time to load on a wired connection through a high speed fiber optic connection. Or skip the demo and play around with the maps. Site not all that fast. Still, it's worth waiting for if you want the data.

While there are wildfires raging in northern San Diego county (see interactive map), my heart goes out to family and friends there.  The recent drought in California makes the condition perfect for wildfires to spread.  This video is a nice glimpse of San Diego during better times.

Do You Love Science? [infographic]

Do You Love Science? [infographic] | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Every time I am asked anything about science, all I can think of are beakers and Bunsen burners and am quick to deny my interest in the subject matter. Well, this infographic is out to change this backward thinking. As it turns out, I actually do love science! Why? Because I love outer space, animals, people, cooking, and volcanoes! Little did I know that all these loves of mine fall under science education. Now when someone talks to me about science I will think along the lines of astrologer, ornithologist, nutritionist, seismologist, or population ecologist!

A Virtual Universe

A Virtual Universe | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Scientists at MIT have traced 13 billion years of galaxy evolution, from shortly after the Big Bang to the present day. Their simulation, named Illustris, captures both the massive scale of the Universe and the intriguing variety of galaxies -- something previous modelers have struggled to do. It produces a Universe that looks remarkably similar to what we see through our telescopes, giving us greater confidence in our understanding of the Universe, from the laws of physics to our theories about galaxy formation.
