Provides 50 interactive wall maps—at no cost

The eBookPLUS includes 50 interactive wall maps for teachers to demonstrate and use when using maps to teach from. Similar to the printed versions, the digital maps provide more opportunities for engagement and interactivity, without the issues of cost and storage/space. Students can click layers on/off, write on the maps and zoom in with the scale changing accordingly and remaining visible at all time. Using the drawing tools, teachers can highlight patterns to students, which is great for visual learners.

Increases student engagement

The Jacaranda Atlas provides a visually stunning and information-rich environment to motivate students to develop key geographical skills. The online statistical mapper allows students and teachers to instantly create their own maps of selected world statistics or sort data to create their own graphs. Contemporary case studies (such as the disputed South China Sea, ewaste and population movements in Syria), and the ability to interact with, and personalise, digital maps not only increase students’ engagement in the material, but assist in the retention of learning.

Saves time, money and space

The Jacaranda Atlas provides teachers with ready-made content through case studies that specifically address units in the curriculum (identified on each page by a “curriculum link” icon) to help with planning and preparation. What’s more, the combined hardcover and eBookPLUS provide incredible value for money and teachers save even more with the 50 interactive wall maps. These important resources are now digital, enabling teachers to demonstrate using maps without the cost and space issues of the printed versions.
