General Discussion / GIS
« on: June 28, 2016, 06:44:39 PM »
Hi, we are a school that only uses macs - has anyone found a GIS package  that works and is user-friendly? Thanks

Does anyone know who moderates the AQA GCSE Ning? I have requested membership a while ago and it hasn't yet been approved. On a similar theme, and without wanting to undermine the excellent sharing that goes on here, I would be interested in hearing how people are sharing resources and ideas for the new A Level and GCSE specs. In the past I have always found that designated groups aimed at a particular board and spec work best, but not sure what is going on and think it would be a good idea to try to gather a list of groups in one place for everyone.  Alan Parkinson and Tony Cassidy have come up with this idea looks great (but again, not aimed at one board, though they do have folders for each board) Also #geogshare on twitter. I use Twitter for much of my CPD and in my other whole school T&L role. An ex-colleague is part of a very active group on Facebook aimed at teachers teaching the IBDP, and c.barton this up:
What else do people use? I am especially interested in the new AQA GCSE and OCR A LEVEL.

Thanks in advance

General Discussion / VLE
« on: February 11, 2014, 08:03:05 PM »
It's been a longtime since I posted. Had a range of other things going on. Not least developing the ICT at my current school. Now the following are not specifically geography questions but.

1. Any thoughts on the different VLE's - we currently use a combination of Studywiz and Edmodo, but are looking at realsmartcloud (Firefly and Frog are also in the mix) I can't help but think that the days of paying for a VLE are going, however I don't know what the options are. Any suggestions/advice would be great - especially about realsmartcloud or options rather than using a paid for VLE

2. 1:1 devices - we are currently rolling out ipads across the school and I would value linking with others who have gone through the same process.

Thanks in anticipation

I have just finished reading Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne (Talking Heads)

Maybe very useful for AQA A2 world cities?

I have just been told that I have some money to spend on books for the school library. I have a number of ideas, but was  wondering if anyone has a list of books they have recently purchased. ideally the money needs to be spent on KS3 age group.

General Discussion / Years 4-6
« on: August 12, 2009, 07:45:36 PM »
Does anyone have any experience of designing a geography curriculum for primary schools? In particular Years 4-6?  If so what have you included?
Also do any SLNers teach towards the common entrance exam in Geography? I am very interested in making contacts and sharing ideas and resources with you if you do.
