Compare Countries With This Simple Tool

Compare Countries With This Simple Tool | HISTORY RESEARCHER | Scoop.it
Drag and drop countries around the map to compare their relative size. Is Greenland really as big as all of Africa? You may be surprised at what you find! A great tool for educators.

Samuel Meyer's curator insight, March 23, 2015 12:00 PM

It is notable that the world's map has changed much since the advent of cartography, and many believed that the Americas were part of Asia. This is represented in the map.

How the 1967 war changed the shape of Israel

How the 1967 war changed the shape of Israel | HISTORY RESEARCHER | Scoop.it
THE SIX-DAY WAR increased Israel’s territory threefold. The “borders of Auschwitz” were gone; the vulnerable nine-mile narrow waist acquired a thick cuirass with the mountains of the West Bank. Israel soon annexed East Jerusalem with some surrounding land; it did the same with the Golan Heights in 1981.

Middle East/Southwest Asia

Katie Kershaw's curator insight, March 27, 11:53 AM
Anyone who thinks they have a solution to dividing up Israel into a land for both Palestinians and Israelis should read this article, because it is basically impossible.  It seems that both Palestinians and Israelis tried to claim as much land as they could for their own during the second half of the twentieth century.  However, they didn’t seem to have a long term plan because basically none of the territories are autonomously Palestinian or Israeli.  There would be no way to divide the country without displacing millions of people.  Jerusalem itself is even more of a mess because it is divided between Jews, Muslims, Christians and Armenians.  There would be no way to grant full control of Jerusalem to one group without causing major conflict.  The very last part of this article describes what both Israelis and Palestinians believe qualify them for greater power in the territory.  Both believe that whoever has a higher population should be entitled to more control.  The problem is that Palestians calculate that their population is about to be equal to the Israelis, but the Israelis believe the birth rate of the Orthodox Jews is high enough to keep their population larger.  It’s pretty hard to tell which group is correct because they are both very biased on the matter.  The settlement patterns and the stubbornness of both the Israelis and the Palestinians leave little hope that this conflict will be solved anytime soon.

Map of Contemporaries

Map of Contemporaries | HISTORY RESEARCHER | Scoop.it
The history of the world in famous people’s lifespans.

John Dalziel's curator insight, June 3, 2017 4:02 AM
Map of Contemporaries is an interactive visual that chronicles the history of the world through the lifespans of famous people. 
For many of us, History is a giant collective tangle of thousands of interwoven stories involving millions of characters, countless chapters, and many, many narrators. 
Map of Contemporaries provides a "Flipped History" resource where, rather than teaching history by highlighting the "major events", the Map of Contemporaries targets different historical figures and through them an overview of the major events that marked their era. 
Different Educational Courses can use the Map of Contemporaries to search for famous people by content area (e.g., arts, music, religion, science…etc) and by their place of birth. 
Once users locate the filtered historical figures, clicking on their name, provides access to Wikipedia pages with more details. 
The Map of Contemporaries provides a fresh perspective on our history, unlike the conventional “vertical” approach of who came after whom and what happened after what. 
NOTE: The timeline uses the data set from Pantheon, which is a project from the Macro Connections group at The MIT Media Lab. 
They provide an excellent list of 15,343 historical figures each marked with a Historical Popularity Index (HPI) that helps us to show the most famous people at the top of the timeline. 
Well worth a closer look, even if you don't teach History!

The world is urbanizing faster than ever, with over half of the planet’s population currently living in cities—more than any time in history. But when did this trend of “urbanization” start? It turns out its roots go back much farther than we thought.

Ομάδα προφορικής Ιστορίας που καταγράφει τις μαρτυρίες μιας ζωής | HISTORY RESEARCHER | Scoop.it
Για τους εθελοντές της Ομάδας Προφορικής Ιστορίας, η συλλογή μνήμης είναι μια διαφορετική ανθρώπινη προσέγγιση στην πάντα ριψοκίνδυνη και απαιτητική διαδικασία που εμπεριέχει η δημιουργία του ιστορικού προφορικού ντοκουμέντου, προσφέροντας έτσι ένα πολύπλευρο πορτρέτο της Ιστορίας. Βασικό μέλημα τους είναι η ανάκληση της προσωπικής μνήμης και η διερεύνηση του σημαντικού ρόλου της στην εξερεύνηση και κατανόηση του παρελθόντος, άρα και του παρόντος.
