I learned from Alan Parkinson’s Living Geography blog that a project to which I contributed has begun to appear on the Geographical Association website. It’s called Using ICT to Enhance Teaching and Learning at KS4 and was funded by BECTa.
Visit the project site.
I’ve written up a short investigation on Juicy Geography’s Google Earth blog
Rich Allaway has created another mini-site, this time comparing the flooding events at Boscastle and Lynmouth. Targetted at KS3 and also AS level, the resource makes great use of technologies such as Live Local, Google Earth and a new Site Pal character, “Walter Falls”
Rich has included a long and varied collection of resources, as well as pupil and teacher notes. Excellent effort!

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.
