General Discussion / Textbook credits
« on: October 29, 2017, 11:16:46 AM »
Just on the off chance that any of you have a spare moment ( daft I know)....I can't get to see any Geog textbooks in local bookshops or library. I'm looking for any image credits for 'geogphotos' or 'geogphotos/alamy' and could really do with some help. These are normally in small print at the back of books. Looking for title so that I can find ISBn numbers. Not likely I know but just in case...

Free pics for education and personal use - now possible to simply right click and download unwatermarked images. No longer necessary to log in. Hopefully this will be of use to teachers and students and to anybody looking for images for personal blogs, homework assignments, and so on - basically anything that is not commercial. Please spread the word. Having built this collection of 40,000 images I'd like to see them being used.

Do we tend to over-emphasise bad news in attempting to build relevance? Can this actually be harmful and damaging to youngsters?

Is there some truth at least in criticisms that geography has become a sort of anti-capitalist green-entric downer??

What about some good news?

Indeed, I remember many of these SLN names and best of luck on a personal level.

But I also recall how many of the same people denigrated the 'Waugh-isation' of geography with chunky big expensive textbooks ( that soon turn into weighty fossils but remain in use because of their expense so holding back innovation) and saw the SLN 'community' as something of a grassroots antidote to the sort of establishment geography typified by content-heavy textbooks which most schools, in any case, can't afford.

I hope that it is still permissible to post provocatively here - I feel that Chris Durbin would have thought so back in the early 2000s.

Nothing much has changed. Those years ago calling for radical change now have the jobs and status that they perhaps always wanted all the time. But best of luck all the same.

Mr P's new favourite price?

I'm sure that it is all very good but certainly not cheap is it - I wonder how state schools manage to afford set of textbooks at these prices.

Looks an amazing set of resources.

But what a price for the whole lot!

Do schools have this sort of money ...state schools?

I see this so differently.

Think about how much schools spend on expensive resources from commercial publishers. Think about the usually low fees paid to teachers who create resources for commercial publishers. Now we have a situation where teachers themselves can create resources - often of the same quality as commercial publishers though more modest in scope. The creators can make a few quid, and teachers can get super cheap resources. Isn't this a genuine win-win?

And if a creative teacher produces valuable resources for others why should they be treated like some sort of evil capitalist low-life?

Likewise I don't understand why teachers expect to get paid.....I thought they did the job because they loved doing it.

Are they just being selfish asking to be paid money for their work, time and creativity?

Doesn't this devalue the role? Surely somebody out there will be willing to work for free.

Sorry Matt -my mistake
