GeoStories | technologies |
GeoStories combine interactive maps, media, and narrative. This collection contains all GeoStories from NG Education.
John Dalziel's insight:

GeoStories are short, map-based stories featured on National Geographic Education.

The stories combine text, maps, and pictures to tell a story as a series of slides connected to placemarks on maps. National Geographic Education currently offers twenty GeoStories.

The current GeoStories cover subjects in the areas of...

- politics,

- ecology,

- music, and

- exploration.
The Geostories offer a good model of using maps to enhance the telling of a story.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, December 21, 2013 8:06 PM

GeoStories are published by National Geographic and contain a narrative, a map and media. It  would be a great idea for students to make their own GeoStory about a significant historical character, ancient civilisation or a journey of discovery!

Constitute | technologies |
John Dalziel's insight:

In the past, it’s been difficult to access and compare existing constitutional documents and language because the texts were locked up in libraries or on the hard drives of constitutional experts.


Google Ideas supported the Comparative Constitutions Project to build Constitute, a new site that...
- digitizes and makes searchable the world's constitutions.
- enables people to browse and search constitutions via curated and tagged topics, as well as by country and year.


The Comparative Constitutions Project cataloged and tagged nearly 350 themes, so people can easily find and compare specific constitutional material.


This ranges from the fairly general, such as "Citizenship" and "Foreign Policy," to the very specific, such as "Suffrage and turnouts" and "Judicial Autonomy and Power."
