Geography lesson tech tools?
I'm teaching in the MAT program at U Alaska this summer and developing some learning modules - each feature a tech tool these folks may use in the future.
I'm looking for a geography - based lesson idea that utilizes a tech tool. Any ideas or models?

I’m applying for a grant to support a summer course. We plan to do interviews and add the videos to an iBook. If you had $1200 for a digital vid. Camera/tripod/Microphone etc., what would you buy?

+Chris Turnbull Wow! The PadCaster is an awesome bit of gear. As someone who has been podcasting since 2002 when it was primitive audio only, I can really appreciate how far we've come after cruising around their web site.

On March 28, 1942 in Portland, Oregon, Minoru “Min” Yasui walked into the Portland Police station to deliberately violate a military curfew imposed upon all persons of Japanese ancestry under Executive Order 9066 (which led to the incarceration of over 120,000 Japanese Americans during WWII).
