Why Leaders Should Learn Geography - GeoLounge

Why Leaders Should Learn Geography - GeoLounge | TFNAC15 | Scoop.it

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.

Maree Whiteley's curator insight, February 26, 2014 3:56 AM

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."

Hoolee Nan's curator insight, March 30, 2014 5:14 PM

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.
