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!

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!

Thanks :)

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

General Discussion / Emotional mapping of urban Britain
« on: January 30, 2017, 10:42:16 AM »
SLNer and urban explorer Dan Raven-Ellison has been traveling Britain with a brain scanner, mapping his emotional response to Britain's urban areas. He was on BBC Breakfast this morning.

Dan said "Birmingham is greener than you think"
Stoke is "interesting"
Newcastle has "so many children"
The Mood Map can be seen here

Driving home southwards this afternoon I had a thought ....

How about how we are connected via the Prime / Greenwich Meridian 0°?
