Digital Storytelling and Being Average

National Geographic’s series on the global population of 7 Billion is being promoted with several videos including this one on being “typical.” 

Our 10th grade Global Studies students could easily gather data from the Population Reference Bureau, NationMaster, United Nations, and the CIA World Factbook, see the National Geographic video as an example, and then use a video tool like Movie Maker Online or JayCut to create their own “typical” videos for the countries they are studying.

Thank you to Jim Gates for posting the video on his blog, “TipLine – Gates Computer Tips.”
