Its that time of year when Google produces its ‘Year in Review’ video, and we spend a couple of minutes remembering events that seemed so long ago but whose effects are still central to the daily lives of those who were affected by them.
Many or all of these issues have been covered as they happened by Maps101 and the Maps101 blog. We thank you for your continued support of Maps101, your encouragement and guidance as we refine and develop a product that reaches hundreds of thousands of students worldwide each day. One of the main points that hits home from this video is how fast the world is changing, and how much can occur in just 365 days. We hope that you, as teachers and students, continue to find Maps101 a rewarding and useful tool for interpreting and understanding this monumental and fast-paced change.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SAIEamakLoY]
