This project is about collaborating to create interactive maps, using Thinglink or Google maps. Each month a base map will be provided and each participating school will upload their info (text, image, video etc) on this map.
There will be different themes, for example, topography, climate, water resources, pollution, vegetation, flora/fauna, culture, monuments, history etc.
It is essential that there are many schools in this project, so that a wide area of Europe would be covered.
- The students will introduce their school, using padlet. If they want, they can also select an other way to introduce (presentation, video etc).
- The groups will make logos and submit them by October 20th (there can be up to 3 suggestions). Then, by the end of October there is going to be a voting to select the project logo.
- The map of the partner schools will be created, with the position of each school and some info and photos of the school.
Geophysical map: On a topographic base map (Google map), the students will upload photos and info about
- the geomorphology of their home town and of the surroundings of their hometown
- important geophysical characteristics (mountains, plains etc) of their country.
- rivers and lakes that are around their school or in their country
- seas and Islands
- other geophysical features of their country
- Language map: The students can record themselves speaking their native language or upload youtube videos of their native language. Also there can be information about their native language (origins etc)
- Map of cultural elements: The students can upload information about customs, food etc of their country
- Civil map: Photos and info about the important cities, harbors, etc of each country.
- Demographic information about each country: birth and death rates, population changes, migrations, population structures etc.
Economy - There will be one map on Google maps, containing different theme levels:
- Map of primary production: Agriculture, livestock farming, mining etc
- Industrial map
- Monuments map: the students will upload photos and info about important monuments and places of interest of their country.
The students will comment on the work they have done so far. They will try to see the connections that arise from the different thematic maps and comment on that, using padlet or a similar web 2 tool.
