Would an inverted Peters projection "freak you out"?

Tiani Page's curator insight, April 27, 2015 11:51 PM

As part of geography education we are required to teach students about different map projections and the rationale for these. This little video puts it quite well.

This is an engaging and funny clip! It is a great resource that could be used in a lessons introduction! for myself i love finding funny little clips that relate to a topic to play at the start of a lesson and then explain to the students what the topic is! Great resource i will be saving for later

Geography Soup is a Vimeo channel designed to include interesting videos that are laden with geographic content in them.  This powerpoint slideshow has resources designed to help you get the most flavor and substance out of these (and any other) video resources.  This is especially great for K-12 students, physical and regional geography.

This was one of our focuses last chapter. I totally agree with this because woman and as well as men deserve education they need education to have a successful life. I like how she describes this so well and thoroughly she talks about what she wants and needs in her life.

Raychel Johnson's curator insight, May 25, 2015 8:42 PM

Summary: In this interview, Jon Stewart talks with Malala Yousafzai, a girl who outwardly fought for women's education, and in doing so, was shot by the Taliban. Even now, she continues to fight for women's equality and their right to education, after she won her Nobel Peace Prize. 

 

Insight: In this interview, the main topic is gender equality, and how it can lead to better education for women, which, in turn, gives women more power. Although developed countries, especially in Western Europe, already display high gender equality, more developing countries, especially in the Middle East, have hardly anything close to gender equality. Even with low amounts of gender equality, people like Malala and advocates in Western countries are striving towards this goal of gender equality.

“We don’t even know if anyone is listening, 
being alone isn’t a problem
let me just emphasise 
read a book, paint a picture, 
or do some exercise
you’re being productive and present, 
not reserved and recluse” 

Sue Alexander's curator insight, May 5, 2014 9:24 AM

a good reminder for all; well worth watching

This is a great reminder to put down our phones and computers and relate to life. It is short, but impactful

I have used such research to counsel patients in pain (whether physical, emotional or spiritual) about incorporating things to make them laugh, like comedy and laugh yoga, into their day.  There is value in "smiling through the pain".  It helps to be able to explain there is a neurologic basis for such advice.
