Several weeks ago I mentioned how geteach.com became a project that got away from me. Here is video post demonstrating the lesson that kept me up night after night creating the site. Please feel free to take, modify, or recreate the lesson.
I understand that this lesson could very well be done with a good atlas; and originally, students used an atlas and paper. However, part of what makes technology a great tool for education is the ability to capture curiosity in a greater number of students. If I can get a student to look at spatial distributions for an extra five minutes I’m all in. Granted there can be some downsides, like students jumping around the interweb never fully completing a thought, but hey…learning is messy.
