Geography-Quiz.org releases a series of geography quizzes (http://www.geography-quiz.org/) for visitors to test their knowledge of different countries, their capitals, and the world’s rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans.
Created by the web design and content development team at Geography-Quiz.org, the quizzes cover a range of topics to help visitors to improve their geographic knowledge and locate physical features across the globe. Geographic knowledge makes us more aware of the fact that we live in a pluralistic world in which different countries, nations, minorities, cultures, and value systems co-exist.
“The new quizzes make us more geography aware given that we live in a world of interdependent communities. Geographic knowledge helps us to create a mental map of the world,” said John Williams, marketing consultant at Geography-Quiz.org.
The new series of quizzes covers a wide range of geographic topics and questions such as the longest river in Asia, the largest lake in South America, the capital of Ecuador, and many others. The goal is to help visitors upgrade their geography knowledge, offering a source of knowledge to both students and adult learners. Today, we are global citizens in a world in which governance, technological progress, and scientific breakthroughs are not restricted to the domain of the nation-state. People have multiple identities based on different human needs, including social, religious, political, economic, and cultural. While we are still Canadians, Americans, French, or Brazilian, there is a sense of belonging to a global community of citizens. And despite the fact that traditional identities are still important for many people, geography knowledge allows us to see what is happening beyond our immediate surroundings. The global agenda unites citizens around the world and focuses on values such as cultural diversity and pluralism, humanitarian assistance, conflict prevention, climate change mitigation, and poverty alleviation. The new series of quizzes by Geography-Quiz.org allows visitors to test their knowledge and offers the basics to encourage them to learn more about different cultures, countries, and our global community.
