Welcome to the Massachusetts Geography Alliance blog space.
This is place where we can exchange ideas about geography teaching and learning. Geography educators are invited to share teaching ideas,
quirky map images, and helpful links.

In July, members of each of the six New England state geography alliances met in Chicopee, Massachusetts in a leadership institute with much planning and discussion of how we can ensure that geography education and the Alliances continue to grow and become sustainable in our region. It was very productive and reassuring institute, spanning generations - geography education is alive and well in New England and we have strong leadership to take it forward.
Here is a photo of attendees with the EarthView, a 20ft inflatable globe, a veritable geography classroom - 24 students can go inside at a time and learn about planet Earth. EarthView is based at Bridgewater State University.
