Alan Parkinson - Geographical Association President 2021-2022 modeling the 2022 GAConf22 merch

Matt Podbury and I are providing a bit of 'merch' based fun at #GAConf22.

We will have some t-shirts to give away - featuring the fantastic artwork of Tom Morgan-Jones that celebrates Alan's year as Geographical Association president.

If you are at the conference, come and find us, say hello and maybe we can find you a t-shirt!

The How do you know what you don’t know? Newsletter

How do you know what you don’t know?

How do you know what you don’t know? is about spreading some of the things that I am finding useful and sharing it in an easily accessible and digestible way.

The first item is for all geographers based on bigger ideas and everyday geographies. The idea behind the second item is something that is more focused on the needs of IB DP geographers, educators and students. The third section is a quick update on something I am working on. The fourth and final item is a bit more random. Usually a bit techie, an app, an online service, or similar.

The ‘How do you know what you don’t know?’ newsletter is free, and isn’t (just) for geographyalltheway subscribers.

Tuesday 12 April

14.00 - 15.00 → Contemporary photography as part of your everyday geography teaching

The stories professional and amateur photographers tell are part of our everyday geographies. Building upon a session at the 2020 GA Conference Teachmeet, this session offers an exploration of how the work of contemporary photographers influences our perceptions of people and place. Developing the critical thinking skills necessary to integrate photos and social media posts used in lessons will be discussed.
