Showing We Know: Geographic Thinking

Investigating life in several diverse countries around the world has been what the 3Js have been focusing on over the past several weeks.  They’ve used the Google tool My Maps to locate the countries and to add information we’re learning about each.  Yesterday students were introduced to the Chrome extension Screencastify.  After a bit of practice using this video tool, we decided to use it to show we know where each country is in the world and in relation to Canada.  Several students shared their screen casts with me, so I mashed them up to illustrate an example of how the 3Js are able to show their geographic knowledge.
