Atlas for iPad: An App for Maps

Summary : An Easy-to-Use Reference for the World’s Countries

[asa_item id=”434371460″]

Atlas for iPad Free provides users with maps of the world that can be viewed by continent or as a political map of the globe. When users select a map, they can zoom in or expand their view by pinching their fingers. Additionally, users can view information about different countries by tapping the “facts” button on the bottom of the screen and choosing a country. The information provided includes the population, area, geographic coordinates, languages spoken, type of government, capital, gross domestic product (GDP), currency, and background of the country.

Instructional Ideas

  1. When teaching about a country or significant event, teachers can show students where the country is or where the event happened using this app.
  2. When researching a country, students can consult with this app’s “Facts” section to learn information about the country. Students can then summarize the information or use it as a springboard to begin exploring other topics related to the country.
  3. Teachers can create activities in which students consult these maps to create alliances or partnerships between counties. To do so, students would be required to pick two to five countries that would create an alliance. Next, students would have to explain why these countries should form an alliance. Example justifications include the countries’ geographic locations, natural resources, backgrounds, and wealth (GDP). Students could then present their proposed alliances by composing a justification or presenting their rationale to their classmates. The proposed alliances could be posted to a class website, and classmates could offer their feedback about the alliances that include support or criticism.
