How do you know what you don’t know? - Issue #12
Geographical because it generates maps, fantasy maps, but still maps. Open the site to generate a map, press Enter and it will generate another. By pressing T it allows you to choose the tags that will define some of the characteristics that you would like to add to the map. There is a version that allows you to export your map as an image.
There has to be a use for this in the geography classroom, or maybe part of an interdisciplinary exercise with one of the language departments.

Local and civil society resistance to global interactions: rejection of globalized production, including campaigns against TNCs and in favour of local sourcing of food and goods by citizens
OK - so this video is nearly 4 years old but is still works. I used it (again) this week and thought it was worth a share. I use it in 5.3.1 Resistance to global interactions with the questions:
Why did Dunkin’ Donuts fail in India?
How did the power of existing Indian preferences resist the efforts of the TNC?
CNBC have some other useful looking videos on their YouTube channel such as Why Starbucks Struggles In Vietnam's $1B Coffee Market, Why Harley-Davidson Is Struggling In India and Why Taco Bell Failed In Dubai.
This project started as a spreadsheet and then with a little magic from Glide was turned into an app. podcasts.geographyalltheway.com is an online app that organises 230 geographically focused podcasts into IB DP Geography units. It can be used on a smartphone or a laptop/desktop browser.
Make sure you click on the 'burger' (three horizontal lines) icon in the top left hand corner to access all the different units.
Mac only this week, apologies Windows users!
Sometimes it can all be said with an emoji. If you are using a Mac and want to get to the emojis quickly (install Rocket) and then type : and start writing the name of the emoji you are after. Done.
