Cool Tool Break! Geosense for autodidacts.

A break from all the craziness of patents and rhizomes. I’ve been playing around with and thinking that there are about a gazillion uses for it. Not that I’m a huge believer that geography should eat up massive amounts of time in the school day. More that I think that this is the kind of thing that doesn’t require a teacher, at least not in terms of learning where all the countries are. We should be, amongst other things, be training autodidacts. And this is a fantastic site for teaching that.

edit: This does not mean, of course, that i think that geography without context makes bunches of sense. Just that, like memorizing multiplication tables makes math discussions easier, having a good sense of where the countries are, makes the discussion about geopolitics (for instance) easier.
