Technology often ignites students’ curiosity when they are allowed to explore a topic in depth and independently. For the students in this video, geography lessons suddenly became more exciting and interactive when their teacher began using several apps to teach concepts. Students were able to explore and compare the geography of different regions, and then discover how this impacted human life. This exploration allowed students to come up with their own unique questions and use digital tools to uncover the answers.
