Digital Learning Day

As a culmination of our population chapter I posed a controversial question to my AP Human Geography students: can Earth’s resources support our growing population? We read about Thomas Malthus and his theories about a population that grows exponentially (2 x 2 x 2), but sources of food that only grow arithmetically (2 +2 +2). We looked at contemporary articles that put his theory to test in our modern environment, and then took a side to the question at hand. Finally, students took their research and findings and created a Piktochart to share their analysis.

Here are some of my favorite creations…

It was our first time interacting with Piktochart, so I expected somewhat of a learning curve, but the interface was extremely user-friendly. My kids (obviously) got the hang of it pretty quickly. I’m looking forward to using this tool more in the future!
