WHY GEOGRAPHY EDUCATION MATTERS VIDEOS
This is a compilation of videos that can be used to at the beginning of the school year to show the importance of geography, spatial thinking and geo-literacy.
VIDEO #1: This is an excellent promotional video for geography as a whole, but the AP Human Geography course specifically. For more from this great Florida teacher, visit his course website which has some incredible resources.
VIDEO #2: This is video is a great tool to drum up interest in an AP Human Geography course produced by David Burton.
VIDEO #3: This is a fun, student-produced video about all that a geographic education can provide based on the movie Limitless.

Thanks Seth. What a great and useful resource. Now, the problem.. which one to show first……..

As Sharon mentioned…which one to use first?! Love ’em. I have them the last hour of the day on Day One. These will certainly grab their interest! Thanks.

I agree with Sharon. Maybe I will show one every day next week!
Thanks for this resource. You are the best!

Thanks Seth! I use a few of these so I know I’m doing something right! Don’t forget the Penn State series on the Geospatial Revolution for covering technology. They are cutting edge and produced to grab students’ and adults’ attention with the camera work and effects. I think they are powerful tools to attract people into some of those fields they may not have realized had anything to do with geography.
