geographyalltheway.com and remote learning - an update

I have been adding more prompts and structure to each page of geographyalltheway.com to ensure productive student outcomes.

All of Units 1 to 6 - all of Paper 2: Global Change and Paper 3: Global Interactions - now have additional prompts and questions to support remote learning.

If you require any help with geographyalltheway.com - it's use with students, broken links, missing videos or arranging access to the subscription content - please get in contact.

Remote learning

Every school needs a copy (or multiple copies) of 'Why Study Geography?'

Why Study Geography?

Alan Parkinson - an award-winning geography teacher, and author, Vice President of the Geographical Association, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and Chartered Geographer - has written a new book → Why Study Geography?

The book is the second title in the London Publishing Partnership 'Why Study' series and is a must read for all students considering studying geography at university or wondering whether a geography degree will get them a good job.

I will be ensuring we have copies in the Individuals and Societies department, the school library and with the school's college counsellors.

Did you know Google Earth could now do this? at Discover the World Education TeachMeet

Discover the World Education TeachMeet

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being one of the 'storytellers' at the Discover the World Education TeachMeet. The event had a real international feel - with speakers joining from the UK, US, Costa Rica, France (me) and the Balearic Islands.

The story I told was 'Did you know Google Earth could now do this?' focusing on the use of Earth for web.

The Google Earth Project that I mentioned during the Teachmeet was designed as a revision activity for IB DP Geography students. You can explore the project here.
