The Power of Place: Geography for the 21st Century

The Power of Place: Geography for the 21st Century

The field of geography is undergoing something of a renaissance, and more and more schools are including it in their basic curriculum. Educators (and the generally curious) will be delighted to learn about this informative series created by the Cambridge Studios in 2003. It has since made its way online to the Annenberg Media website, and it can be viewed in its entirety here. The series includes academic commentary from various scholars, maps, illustrative animations, and it covers a wide range of topics. Some of the individual episodes include �The Transforming Industrial Heartland�, �Global Interaction�, and �Ethnic Fragmentation in Canada�. Visitors can watch any of these twenty-six episodes after completing a free online registration form, and they can also look at a separate website created just for this particular program.
