Truth Depends on your .domain

February 24, 2017

It was mentioned in a podcast I recently listened to, and I had to try it for myself. Google maps aren't the same from domain to domain, and the "truth" of these borders depends on the country from which you're viewing.  Take a look below.

What if we had students look at maps from different domains? (Yes, there is an issue with understanding the language, but the shape of the continents are the same.) This could spark so many wonderful conversations about ownership, citizenship, and perception. Not to mention questioning the authority of Google or Apple to draw a map of the world's borders.
