Digitala kartor och källkritik Digitala kartor förändrar undervisningen Den digitala tekniken har fullständigt revolutionerat användningen av kartor, inte minst inom skolans undervisning. Tidigare var vi lärare hänvisade till de väggkartor som råkade finnas i klassrummet, de kartböcker skolan hade köpt in, de kartbilder som fanns i läroböckerna samt de köpta eller egenhändigt tillverkade overhead-bilder vi hade tillgång till.

Maps are spectacular at conveying a lot of information in a simple image. h/t: Thanks to the MapPorn subreddit for being a great resource for both finding maps and for getting criticism and analysis of those maps.
