The Oklahoma Alliance for Geographic Education (OKAGE)
Our mission: to help foster a "geographically competent citizenry" in Oklahoma and our nation.
Welcome to OKAGE's new website! We are a nonprofit, statewide partnership between collegiate and Pre-Kindergarten-12 teachers of geography/social studies, business and agency professionals. We are part of the National Geographic Network of Alliances for Geographic Education. Together we provide educators with professional development opportunities, academic networking, model geography education programs, innovative teaching strategies, and classroom materials.

"A DIFFERENT TAKE ON GEOGRAPHY EDUCATION"
In November, Population Connection's Education staff traveled to Norman, Oklahoma and worked with 130 seventh grade geography teachers from around the state. The Oklahoma Alliance for Geographic Education hosted a World Geography Academy at the University of Oklahoma and invited PopEd to explore population topics and global demographics, past and present, look at human impacts on the environment, and issues for the global family - from economics and fertility rates to gender equity issues. It was a fantastic opportunity and a lot of fun!
