Google Earth Project: The Middle East
Teacher Training Day
22nd March 2019
text

As part of our studies on the history of the Middle East Conflict, my students were provided with an timeline of events.

The class was then divided into two groups. One was instructed to produce a Google Earth Tour from an Anti-Palestinian perspective, the other from an Anti-Israeli perspective.

By doing so, and then comparing each other's work, they were able not only to familiarise themselves with the main events of this very important piece of history and current affairs, but were able to separate out facts from opinions, and appreciate how propaganda (adding opinion and "spin") and censorship (cutting out unwelcome facts) can be used by biased people to affect our perception of events.
