This video provides a glimpse of Re-Shape, a new type of computer-supported collaborative learning environment I am developing with colleagues at Vanderbilt University's Space, Learning & Mobility Lab. Re-Shape allows learners to gather their daily or weekly physical movement and dynamically visualize and interact with their movement over different base maps and data sets in multiple 2D and 3D representational forms. This environment helps teach students how local history, urban planning and race and diversity shape the multi-faceted histories of particular places in ways important to social studies and human geography.
