FLIP THE MAP! is a series of digital curriculum resources that encourage creative interactions with cartography (mapping) as a means for understanding the land/place we live. ‘Flip the map!’ presents a series of maps and mapping exercises that, together, work as a flexible curriculum-tool that educators can use to generate place-based curricular activities and pedagogical practices for a range of subjects and disciplines.
