Geographical Association Annual Conference 2022
- The How do you know what you don’t know? Newsletter
- Tuesday 12 April
- Wednesday 13 April
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? 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.Delegate Handbook
