This part aims to assist teachers in becoming familiar with utilizing web-based user-friendly interactive-maps and digital documentaries to help foster active teaching and learning within the field of Geography and beyond. In order to do so, the first section defines and connects the studies of geomedia (such as georeferenced media) and ecocinema (such as environmental documentary) which together form engaging and educational geomedia projects. The second and third sections offer examples of practical open educational resources (OERs), which include interactive maps and environmental documentaries, as well as sample activities and guiding questions, that teachers can implement as presented or reference to help guide their own active teaching and learning goals.
