Explain - What new learning have I taken from this module?
The videos on plate tectonics and the interactive images on plate boundaries and the locations of earthquakes, plate boundaries and volcanoes will be very useful in my Earth science classes, later in the year, when we get to those topics. I also plan to use the information from the cultural connections video to demonstrate why the landforms produced by tectonic activity have relevence to our society. Living in an area that has recently been impacted by Mt. Redoubt eruptions, this will be particularly powerful for Kenai students.
Carolyn's Explore 907 post is enjoyable and intersting. I agreed with her particularly liking Richard Glenn's comment about the Native way of seeing the world and Western science merely being two flashlights shining down the same path.
It sounds like Alison (Explore Alaska with Alison) lead a very magical and fortunate life as a child spending Alaskan winters in a remote cabin.
Dan Adair's blog mentioned the usefulness of the videos and of Google Earth for visual learners as well as the possibility of expanding studies of the Native view of the world to that of Natives outside of Alaska.
