Why Geography Matters - A Video & Video Project

Why Geography Matters is a video produced by Google employees. Clearly the video is a promotion for Google Earth, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't have some educational value. The video features Google employees and students sharing their thoughts on why geography matters.

Thanks to Sylvia Tolisano for sharing the video on her blog.

Applications for Education
This video could be a model for a classroom video project in which students share their thoughts about why geography matters. You could do this at the end of a semester as a way for students to review the things they've studied in your classroom. If you don't have access to video cameras for your students, try one of these
