Odblog: Take a walk with us
Take a walk with us
Categories: s1 and s2, UrbanLessons are going in cycles again, round to using this and this and lots of contrasting images for working out whether Brazil is rich or poor, Higher are doing urban mapwork (might use this) and s2 are starting some work on Environmental Issues. One thing that I liked the look of today was this, which referenced James Howard Kunstler, who helped our s1 lesson indirectly a while ago. It strikes me that this would be a great student project for a virtual fieldwork exercise? For instance, we used streetview for Higher a week or so ago to compare parts of the inner city:Street Cities - Free Mapping and Street View ToolsWe won't have time to do this now, but what would have been useful was for students to podcast on their comparisons and what features of inner cities these locations illustrated.
