This was a fantastic video! My students were mesmerized, and since they are familiar to some extent to GPS, it sparked a lot of interest in other ways their navigation systems could be possibly used.
This is an awesome video and the accompanying materials are great!
Very useful video. Peoples rights, land ownership, big government and modern technology combined to work together to help the people keep their land. Thank you Google Maps.
This video stimulated great discussions about the rule of law and the importance of property rights.

I thought this was a great video! Who could imagine that GPS could be used to benefit tribal peoples who have never had an opportunity to even map their property. I was amazed that the electronics and GPS worked without electricity even. This seemed to be a giant step for mankind!

This was a really good video. It really helps show how modern technology can be used to strengthen a cultural base, instead of always hindering.
This video is a wonderful resource in my Geometry classes. I used the viewing guide and the Integration Activity to connect the information we are learning in class to a real-world application of GPS.
This was useful for both my high school students and the volunteering college students who were working with them last semester. With GIS becoming a growing field and with the race to close gaps in privilege and need around the world it was great to show students how much influence and say every individual can have when heshe realizes how to protect or fight for higher rights. The concepts of initiative and self-starting were really important takeaways for both age groups.
