Map Controversy

| 2 Comments

As teachers move away from pull-down maps and rely more and more on online resources like Google Earth, Assorted Stuff asks whose version of geography should be taught in classrooms. Assorted Stuff notes the Chinese government already has a list of 10,000 “unapproved” maps and believes that the issue will become more relevant closer to the 2008 Olympics, which will be hosted in China. Assorted Stuff urges teachers to “take some time from test prep to include our students in the discussion.”

I love the last comment. Including youth in this discussion could be more valuable than most anything else we could teach.

We should definitely consider to synchronize the teaching methods and resources because students might get confused with multiple resources here and there not knowing which is right and wrong
