The graphic organizer (the last stop in the Prezi) has a set of sets of questions all under the project's driving question:

The path through the Prezi ends with the graphic organizer, but that doesn't mean users should stop once they arrive there. There are links to further things to explore within the graphic organizer. At this writing, that's in the form of other Prezis and PowerPoint presentations to download. A Google Earth file is also included, though note that addresses more than one question from the graphic organizer and is placed off to the side. A product of ReaL Earth Inquiry

http://wiggio.com/yui/folder/stream_file.php?doc_key=qopvIgeWCYr+OAwE7rLv1b8rlPuZr95SPouM82SkWNE= An abstract needs to be written for this VFE.
The abstract should:
Be 75 to 200 words in length;
Describe the nature of the site's geology and/or ecology;
Describe the technology used in the VFE and the educational approach used.
include an estimate of how long it will take to complete,
Note if parts of the VFE may be productively used without completing the entire VFE. Requirements Why does this place look the way it does? Abstract:
Using Prezi, PowerPoint & Google Earth this VFE represents the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. The VFE is a product of a collaboration amongst the educator-participants at the workshop held there in Summer 2011. Located approximately 30 miles (50 km) east of Mesa, Arizona, the Superstitions include several calderas in the Sonoran Desert. Rock in the area is primarily volcanic, but also includes metamorphic and sedimentary. The VFE includes components that may be explored as standalone activities appropriate for environmental science and Earth science courses. Different components are appropriate for different grade levels ranging from elementary to undergraduate.
