I like this Geography in the news blog and will recommend it to my students.
I’ve been very slow off the mark in blogging for/with my own students, compared to many of my online teacher friends and colleagues. That’s set to change with a new blog:
I’m going to use the blog in three ways. Firstly to link to various online materials that could be interesting or useful to the students. Secondly, I’d like to host some examples of student work. Finally, I’m hoping that it will provide an opportunity for those dialogues that could/should take place outside the classroom but never actually materialize. For example the comments could be used to discuss matters arising from homework assignments, examinations or current affairs. I guess we shall see.
I’ve revised the Google Earth page at Juicy Geography with a fresh new look, revisions to the content, and a blog front end. This should make it easier to maintain the page, which had become to long and unwieldy.
A new blog has been set up for Somerset geography teachers. All welcome!
