Presentations to develop visual literacy in geography

“The wise man fears the serene sky, but when a storm comes he walks on the waves and challenges the wind” Confucius quotes

This posting was initiated by viewing the Slideshare collection called the Nubia Group. After checking out the Slideshare resource go to the Nubia groups blogpsot to view even more presentations.

The collection is a broad selection of things we may consider beautiful and fascinating about living in our world and things which cause pain to humanity. I have just selected the PowerPoints from the collection which may be of use to the geography classroom (I am sure there are many more) and recommend you to go through the rich collection of images and commentary contained within. A great resource for visual literacy work in the classroom. While about it go and have look at other geography relevant collections on Slideshare – an amazing resource to help create lessons and for student projects etc.
