ABOUT OUR SECTIONS:
As our Explorers traverse Planet Earth seeking discoveries and untold stories, we’ll bring you and your students behind the scenes, and face to face, with the boldest men and women we know. You will also find featured voices from Educators on Expedition. The Grosvenor Teaching Fellowship recognizes exemplary educators for their commitment to geographic education by sending them on adventures of a lifetime.
We understand that being an educator is an around-the-clock job. We’re hear to help with resources and ideas that will keep the fun, and awe, in learning and teaching about our world. In this section, we’ll help you explore some of our teacher-tested lessons, classroom activities, videos, interactives, professional development opportunities and more.
“Current Event Connection” posts provide educators with context for wide variety of current events and news stories. Every post includes relevant media and discussion ideas featuring content from National Geographic.
National Geographic has adopted a new term to describe in-school and out-of-school learning experiences where students learn about our interconnected world. We call it geo-education. Geo-education is a mindset that anyone can act on, that teaches all of us to see the world through different perspectives.
