Dalhousie University GIS Prof seeks solution to student ignorance of geography

A cool story on a popular topic that rears its head every year or so, students and their lack of geographic skills and understanding of the Earth. Imagine a group of Canadian University students not being able to locate the Atlantic Ocean on a map! Indeed, this is the state of geographic literacy in many countries? From the article, this comment by James Boxall (@GISjames) of Dalhousie U, ?I actually do [a quiz] with my first-year students every year, I just haven?t publicized it, and it?s the same results? -see more in the article on CBC

Let us all remember the hilarious yet sad response from Miss Teen S. Carolina a few years back!
