Many Ways to See the World Video

Praise for the video, Many Ways to See the World

 

"Many Ways To See The World is more than a fascinating lesson about maps. It opens the mind of the viewer to profound perspectives on the interconnectedness of human beings everywhere. I hope it will be shown in classrooms all over the country." --- Howard Zinn, author A People's History of the United States

 

An intriguing new video with a big message for a very low cost!...A fascinating exploration of world maps and their ability to convey powerful and lasting images...Trainers can find many uses [including] sessions on critical and analytical thinking; cross-cultural training; negotiating differences; and more. Viewers will find it motivational, entertaining, and educational. ---Government Training News
 

I watched the DVD with my kids (a 1st grader and a 5th grader). I really liked it and I think the additional materials are quite helpful. My 5th grader, who used National Geographic's Map Essential this past year, really liked the explanation and graphics of the different projections, as well as the social points you make: purpose of the map, who's at the center, and who's on top. My 1st grader loved the question of who's on top and the "equal population" mapping. I plan to share the DVD with the 5th/6th grade teachers in our elementary school. I think it will be right up their alley. ---Diana Wright, Sustainability Institute, Hartland VT 

 

Your illustrated lecture is very well done. You clearly demonstrate the relativity of map construction, how a particular projection relates to its intended use. You show cartographers as real people who have specific goals in mind. Their pictures and your comments about them feed into your "empowerment" sub-theme--that change comes because individuals (maybe even when young and alone) take initiatives. Further, I appreciate allowing teachers to make copies of the video/DVD. One of my frustrations when teaching was finding effective materials that were not prohibitively expensive and/or restricted. ---Brant Abrahamson, Teachers' Press

 

This video is a delightful and wondrous resource to discover new ways to see the world. ---Claire O'Brien, museum educator, Springfield Museums, Springfield, MA
