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.
Naj vaši učenci pokažejo, kaj vedo o Indiji na pajkovem zemljevidu! Učitelji bi morda želeli, da se učenci osredotočijo na več pomembnih značilnosti, kot so lokacija na svetu, prebivalstvo, prestolnica, zastava, jezik, geografija, glavne religije, zgodovinski dosežki, znana mesta, viri, živali in običaji.
