40 Maps That Explain The Middle East Maps can be a powerful tool for understanding the world, particularly the Middle East, a place in many ways shaped by changing political borders and demographics. Here are 40 maps crucial for understanding the Middle East — its history, its present, and some of the most important stories in the region today. Middle East History The fertile crescent, the cradle of civilization The fertile crescent, the cradle of civilizationIf this area wasn't the birthplace of human civilization, it was at least a birthplace of human civilization. Called "the fertile crescent" because of its lush soil, the "crescent" of land mostly includes modern-day Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and Israel-Palestine. FAQs: Fragen und Antworten Was ist OpenStreetMap? OpenStreetMap ist ein im Jahre 2004 gegründetes Projekt mit dem Ziel, eine freie Weltkarte zu erschaffen. Wir sammeln weltweit Daten über Straßen, Eisenbahnen, Flüsse, Wälder, Häuser und alles andere, was gemeinhin auf Karten zu sehen ist. Weil wir die Daten selbst erheben und nicht aus existierenden Karten abmalen, haben wir selbst auch alle Rechte daran.

היסטוריה - Google Cultural Institute A exposição Resistir é Preciso... é uma idealização do Instituto Vladimir Herzog e tem como objetivo contar a história da resistência à ditadura militar que se implantou no Brasil em 1964 e que permaneceu no poder até a eleição indireta de Tancredo Neves, em 1985.Nesse período, muitos trabalhadores, estudantes, intelectuais, artistas, religiosos e diversas outras pessoas de vários setores da sociedade civil lutaram pelo restabelecimento da democracia.Durante a luta, milhares de pessoas foram presas e torturadas, centenas foram mortas e muitas delas, até hoje, continuam desaparecidas. Para sobreviver, inúmeros brasileiros foram obrigados a se exilar. “Resistir é Preciso...” reuniu um expressivo conjunto de obras de artes que mostra a militância dos artistas clamando por democracia e denunciando os abusos e os crimes da ditadura.Nesses anos, nasceu também, uma imprensa de resistência que se expandiu no país, na clandestinidade e no exílio.

jerusalem360 360 Australia Map / Oceania Map / Map of Australia / Map of Oceania Oceania, the planet's smallest continent, is without doubt one of the most diverse and fascinating areas on the planet. A large percentage of geography experts now consider the long-established continent of Australia to be more accurately defined as Australia/Oceania. Collectively it then combines all of Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, as well as the thousands of coral atolls and volcanic islands of the South Pacific Ocean, including the Melanesia and Polynesia groups. Oceania also includes Micronesia, a widely scattered group of islands that run along the northern and southern edges of the Equator. Note: All Australia/Oceania recognized countries are labeled in red on the map; dependencies and territories are labeled in black.

Implementing Blogging article State of our School Address (regarding Blogging) 3 years ago, we created blogs (WordPress platform) for ALL classroom teachers and resources. There was an expectation for teachers to be at least on the first step of the blogging ladder, illustrated in the image below. Their classroom blog needed to be, as a minimum, a replacement of a weekly folder filled with parent-school communication and homework assignments. Teachers were expected to learn how to update their blogs (at least on a weekly basis), insert images and videos and categorize their blog posts.

You can print single page maps, or maps 2 pages by 2 pages, 3 pages by 3 pages, etc. up to 8 pages by 8 pages (64 sheets of paper; over six feet across!).

More Hashtags for Teachers Hashtags are a great way of searching for tweets in a specific category from the whole of the Twitterverse – search for #ukedchat and you will come up with a huge stream of tweets which have been tagged as interesting to anyone wanting to read about UK education. As well as searching for tagged tweets, you can tag your own tweet to make sure you are talking to an interested audience that extends beyond your followers. You can tag absolutely any word on Twitter so it can sometimes be difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff. I have read dozens of lists of ‘useful’ hashtags where many of the tags have never been used more than a handful of times. Not useful in my book.

How ancient Aboriginal star maps have shaped Australia's highway network The next time you’re driving down a country road in outback Australia, consider there’s a good chance that very route was originally mapped out by Aboriginal people perhaps thousands of years before Europeans came to Australia. And like today, they turned to the skies to aid their navigation. Except instead of using a GPS network, they used the stars above to help guide their travels. Aboriginal people have rich astronomical traditions, but we know relatively little about their navigational abilities.

List of OSM based Services Available languages — Alphabetically sorted complete list of projects using especially data from OpenStreetMap. For any page using just the OSM Map see OSM Internet Links. For smaller user favourites lists see: The term free materials is what you would colloquially refer to as "open". A project which makes its building blocks - be that software, algorithms, works of art - available to a degree that allows everyone to duplicate it should be labelled "yes", and a project where relevant bits - data processing scripts, rendering stylesheets, or CSS files - are hidden in a black box should be labelled "no".
