Poučevanje svetovne geografije se lahko izkaže za zahtevno in abstraktno. Eden najboljših načinov, kako se učitelji lahko borijo proti temu, je oživljanje študija različnih krajev po svetu z dinamičnimi in prilagodljivimi projekti, ki združujejo digitalno pripovedovanje zgodb, geografijo in domišljijo študentov.
Študentje naj ustvarijo časovnico pomembnih dogodkov v zgodovini države, ki jo preučujejo!
