Geo Walk HD - 3D World Fact Book

Sign in or create an account to add this app to your favorites
Geo Walk HD app is an educational app loaded with useful information about 500 people, places, plants, and animals.
 
The information is presented in two modes as an interactive globe and photo library. Offering a rich sampling of information, the app lets students approach the content in a self-directed way. Quizzes offer a fun way to test retention.
 
Users spin an interactive globe that's covered with small thumbnail pictures (which turn out to be flashcards). When they tap one, they'll see an image indicating one of the game's four categories -- animals and plants, history, people, and inventions. Tap the picture and an informational paragraph gives details in a short, digestible form. The other way to view the information is by viewing the cards, which appear in a circular scrolling manner.
 
Since the information included on each card is brief, this app is a great source to use as an idea generator for research topics. Categories can be deselected, too, so you could make available only the options you want your students to explore (places or events, for example).

WHAT PEOPLE SAY:

"Geo Walk is also an educational app, and features a rotatable model of Earth, with various landmarks and places touchable on it. Click on the Eiffel Tower, and you'll get a picture, as well as a quick blurb about the structure. The design seems to be the same as the other Vito apps -- create an interface that's fun and easy to navigate around, and then fill it with as much information as possible." © Mike Schramm, TUAW

"Geo Walk doesn't explore deep space, it explores our own varied planet. Think of Geo Walk as a world fact book at your fingertips." © Mel Martin, TUAW
