Beta Version of Geography launched in WorldView

Visual Armenia Development Foundation team presents another long-awaited and useful product to the educational community. The beta version of the Geography subject has been launched on WorldView educational platform. We have confidence that it will make teaching Geography more interactive and visually appealing.

Topics about the South American and African continents for the 6th grade are now available on the platform. More than 200 articles in six categories (persons, land, water, flora, fauna, general characteristics) have been developed, enriched with media content, interactive maps of the world’s climate zones, continents’ natural regions and other geographical objects’.

Although Worldview was designed for teaching history, in many schools teachers were using the rich resources of maps and materials during geography classes as well. Today, the platform is already adapted for the Geography subject and with the addition of the content it will gradually become fully applicable for the teaching of this subject as well.

“It gives me joy that we have been able to enrich the WorldView platform with one more subject in addition to Armenian History and World History. During our meetings with the teachers’ community, geography teachers were constantly asking when their subject would be available on our platform. I believe that with the start of the Geography subject our large teaching community, already formed around the WorldView, will expand further and this will lay ground for building community of geography teachers. We are eagerly waiting for teachers’ feedback on using the platform during geography classes”, said Hovhannes Ghazaryan, executive director of the Visual Armenia Development Foundation, author of WorldView Platform.

“We know that the 6th graders start this academic semester with a South America topic, that’s why we are launching the beta version with that continent. In the upcoming months new Geography topics and maps will be added to the WoldView, we will have richer content to teach this important and extremely interesting subject in a new way”, said Sona Hovhannisyan, deputy executive of Visual Armenia Development Foundation, who is also coordinating Geography subject content development.
