If you’re new here and just getting started, you won’t see much below. But that doesn’t mean that there is no one here!

We recommend that you begin by taking Camp KQED Teach or the Media Foundations course, to start seeing projects made by fellow educators. Then, as you cruise through our courses, you will begin to see more and more posts.

Let's go for it.

PS! and the more KQED Teach courses you take, the more posts and projects you will see right here.

I am very interested in learning how these courses will help me to improve my teaching practices in my math courses. Thank you for providing this to me.

Michelle, do you know when the module for "taking Charge of Social Media" will be completed? I am taking this course for Continuing Education credit hours and need to complete this last leg of training to earn credit.

Debra, if you've posted Make & Shares for: Should I Follow That?: Building a Learning Network, Making Connections: Transmedia Navigation, and Adding to the Chorus: Sharing Your Voice Online, you're all set! The course should register as completed now.

Unfortunately, I have completed my work. If you take a closer look, the course is not done being developed. My question for you is when will the course be completed so I can complete my end of the work?

We’ve updated the KQED homepage and would like your feedback! Take a short survey at https://goo.gl/forms/FSIX2NbegShLPfqs2 so that we can continue to serve you better.

Hi

Hi and welcome Kimberly!

Hello

Hey everyone! We're kicking off an interactive map challenge for spring break (coming soon!). And we're looking for some inspiration. Is there a map that you've always wish existed? What kind of map...

I made this map of the Joad family's journey in The Grapes of Wrath! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1weDZ7HB18Lpz0XrhUuzd1Fy_w2g&usp=sharing

I like this version of San Francisco done in the style of Fallout 4: https://ih0.redbubble.net/image.336011485.3818/flat,550x550,075,f.u1.jpg

I would love a map of most plastic polluted beaches in the U.S. or the world. Would be a great resource for a unit on the plastic problem

I need a map of outdoor flea markets in California.

I think this map that tracks where plastics go in oceans is really cool! http://www.adrift.org.au/

Nancy, thx for that ocean drift cool tool/dataviz; garbage patch of plastics is particularly insightful given tonight's Monterey Bay Aquarium 21+ young professionals mixer to introduce youth to ecoscience career paths...thx! As for 'maps we need?' I'd like to ask for a "media literacy" map following the various aspects and channels of 'fake news' proliferation w/a monetization show-n-tell to curb future damage/systemic blight, given the 'rewards' based algorithms finally being adjusted to combat the pay for play dynamics.

I started a map to crowd source space science field trips GSNorCal Area - Space Science https://goo.gl/maps/gnPXBFkmrqy

I need an interactive map of genocides around the world and overtime

How do I make an interactive map of the places refugees live when they first come to our city?

I'd like to see a map where students each input one or more data points on a question of focus and the map then becomes an increasingly data rich answer to that question...

I like that idea John. Can you help me visualize it? What kind of question? Could it be a question like, "why do some people park the wrong way on the street?"

The question could vary considerably by grade level, but what they would all have in common is that students would each contribute data points that filled in an answer for a specific geographic area. "Why" questions are challenging because they get into abstract things like causality. "What", "where" and "How many" questions can be answered with concrete observations, rather than conjecture. Some concrete observations can get at very interesting cultural patterns though...

Just saw this on the PeaceTechLab Weekly Round Up and thought of this conversation: Jigsaw, a Google incubator, produces technology that tackles global security challenges. They have recently launched Liveuamap, an interactive map sourced by live Twitter data. The map depicts conflicts ranging from human rights abuses and terrorist attacks to natural disasters and health epidemics throughout the globe. Viewers can efficiently access transparent data for regions of interest. The map can be particularly useful for making decisions on personal safety for individuals in conflict prone areas.

You can learn more about Liveuamap at: http://world.liveuamap.com/about#team

I'd love a map of soccer fields in the Bay Area, mostly San Francisco
