As I am almost finished with my teacher degree I always look for great ideas that will help the students I will teach some day. This will be great for kids to get the concept of location and scale.  Scale is critical to know where something is, This is a great frame of reference.  

Luke Walker's curator insight, October 3, 2014 3:48 AM

The Lost Art Of Dreaming Over Maps

The Lost Art Of Dreaming Over Maps | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

The era of exploration is largely over. The highest peaks have been climbed, the South Pole has been reached by almost every human-powered means possible, and all that’s really left for true exploring for the sake of exploration is caving, the ocean, and space. None of us are probably going to find the next deepest-ever cave or find a new species at the bottom of the ocean, but we can head out on a Saturday on a mission that has a low chance of success, or a high chance of getting us lost somewhere, instead of just following the metaphorical road more traveled.

Pop culture and religion

 

Lydia Tsao's curator insight, March 24, 2015 1:00 AM

This demonstrates perfectly the effect of technology on religion and culture. The technology of being able to take selfies is affecting the way people view major religious and cultural customs. I think it is very hypocritical of the Saudi government to ban selfies out of fear of desecrating Mecca and the Hajj because it has authorized and built tons of commercial and business centers right next to the Kaaba. The government has authorized the building of many five-star hotels next to the Kaaba for wealthy tourists to visit Mecca. Mecca has been more exploited by the Saudi government than those who take selfies at the Kaaba. Also, many claim that they find no solace in praying to the sound of major traffic jams and booming commercial centers. These centers seek to exploit the holiness and sanctity of Mecca and the Hajj.

“ Japan's population is just over 127 million at present, about 1.04 million less than its historical peak in 2008. But this decline masks drastic shifts in the country's demography. The number of people between the ages of 15 and 64 has declined by nearly 4 million, while the 65 and older cohort has shot up by more than 4 million.”

Emily Bian's curator insight, September 28, 2014 9:31 PM

I agree that people should be able to read physical maps, instead of always relying on their gps or smartphone. Although it is more convenient, I think everybody should still be able to read a paper map, in case something goes wrong. Did you know that 1 in 3 people nowadays can't read a map? I believe it is a skill that takes time and practice, so start practicing now! It took me a while to be able to use the map, because it seemed so much more confusing than my phone or a GPS, but eventually I got it, and it gets easier each time. 

            This article basically says that physical map reading is a ding skill, and raises awareness. This would help future APHUG students, because it reminds them that relying on only your smartphone GPS is not always a good thing. Reading map is a basic skill that everyone should learn. 

1) key geographical skill

The Political Geography of Hong Kong's Protests

The Political Geography of Hong Kong's Protests | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
The territory's residents are demanding democracy in city intersections, not central squares.

 

The significance of the protests, which have brought tens of thousands into the streets, lies not only in what protesters are demanding but also in where they're demanding it—and where they're not. Consider that pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong typically happen in Victoria Park, which is about two and a half miles from Central District and which hosts the annual June 4 candlelight vigil commemorating the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown in Beijing. This time around, however, few police or protesters have ventured there.

The unpredictable, spontaneous geography of the protests is important precisely because it transcends the status quo. It is a testament to how serious these demonstrations are that they refuse to be contained.

This article relates to our class by people protesting and with our projects, people in Syria protested and were punished and this relates to political geography. My opinion is that people should be acknowledged with why they are protesting and where they are doing it, also how it affects everyone else. 
Colby Geiger's curator insight, April 28, 2017 7:25 AM
This article relates to political geography because the protestors of Japan are protesting to shut down the cities main shopping center where the government buildings are. The people of Japan want democracy and I believe that they should have it. To me, democracy is a fair way for the people of a country to choose a ruler and have everybody heard for their opinions.
Kobie Carroll's curator insight, April 28, 2017 11:44 AM
I believe the OCLP (Occupy Central with Love and Peace) campaign had good intentions, wanting to build a truly harmonious society. I, however, believe they made a wrong decision to shut down Hong Kong's Central District. This relates to what we are learning because it shows how individuals with conflicting views can express hate towards each other in one geographical area.
