As I prepare for the first week of classes at CUNY Medgar Evers College where I teach Physical Geography, I’m looking to tryout more technical tools that promote better in class and online engagement. This semester, student’s will learn about geographical tools such as GIS and remote sensing, earth systems and processes related to climate, etc., landscapes and biomes and a little environmental justice.
As an introduction of myself, rather than stand up in class and just talk about my history and journey to the field of geography, I want to show it through maps and pictures…and not use PowerPoint. The ESRI arcgis storymap tool allows me to do this easily. Here is my first attempt at sharing my geographical journey.
