unitedstreaming is constantly being upgraded with new content and as an educator I’m sure it is hard to keep up with all the changes. I have the privilege of working with unitedstreaming everyday and still find it difficult to keep up with all the new features of this robust application. This past week, Karen Seddon the Southern Florida Field Manager, visited PA to help host a few events across the state. She shared one of the coolest features I’ve ever seen within unitedstreaming…Interactive Atlas. This new component is an interactive map that gives educators access to unique videos from all around the world. Educators can zoom in to each country and learn about its culture, government, history and natural world through exclusive videos located within unitedstreaming. This is definitely worth checking out!!!
Here is how you can find this interactive map…Log-on to unitedstreaming and do a search for Atlas. Then, choose any of the atlas videos and click on the related materials tab. Select interactive atlas and click the blue button titled Launch Atlas found under the image preview. Finally, use the drop-down menu to find the country you want to explore.
You can also click on the image below to view a screencast demonstrating the above navigational steps required to locate the interactive atlas.
I think you’ll be surprised to see all the counties listed.
