« on: October 23, 2017, 12:00:57 PM »
Two students from University of Iceland, Halla and Brynja, are doing research on Icelandic/Welsh landscapes in conjunction with Staffordshire University. They would appreciate if you could spare a few minutes to take part in their research survey. It is an interesting and visual survey!

General Discussion / Fieldwork survey

A plug for the GA’s Fieldwork survey – please can you complete yourselves and diffuse further to other colleagues (this includes those responsible for geography provision in Primaries etc...). Re-sharing this onto other groups would be fantastic.

It’s all about how the GA can support teachers with fieldwork in the future – so responses are valuable!

General Discussion / UK County Word Cloud project
« on: May 31, 2017, 07:59:28 PM »
Alan Parkinson has been spending half term with another cracking idea! Using Facebook he has asked people to submit 5 or so words they associate with "Cornwall". he created a word cloud using WordArt with the results.

Alan is expanding the project and hopes to create a word cloud for each county! Can you help? It takes a few seconds and I am sure the results will be very interesting. They will be shared on
