As a geography buff, I get frustrated that many students I talk to don’t seem to have a great grasp of the countries of the world, or in some cases, all 50 states in our own country. Luckily we have free applications like Enigeo. Enigeo is a free download that lets you test your students’ geographical knowledge.

There are a good deal of options and customization in the program that can let you focus in on problem continents and areas. I especially like that you can include capitals and even flags as potential review question types. My only wish would be if you could select individual countries for a custom review (the gold coast of Africa and the “stans” under Russia are always my undoing). For a free application though, Enigeo gets the job done when it comes to working on geography skills for studying up for a test in the future, or if you’re like me, for personal interest.
