Looks an amazing set of resources.

But what a price for the whole lot!

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

Agree with this...
Digimap for Schools also works on any device as it is cloud based...

Not that I know of, but you can always start one - all the others were started by teachers... Also, the focus of the old NING is likely to change to the new specs of course, as it has with the Edexcel 'A' level one.
I will be sharing work we do for OCR 'B' on my teaching blog: http://geographyteacher2point0.blogspot.co.uk/

Promotions / CUP 'A' level book for AQA
« Last post by GB geographer on July 23, 2016, 01:06:19 PM »
This will be published now on August 11th - ahead of the previous schedule, and means that it will be possible to have it waiting for the final week of the summer when some colleagues may be requiring it.

Details are here:

A great authoring team have been helped by a large team of editors, designers etc at CUP and the final product, which I edited, is well over 500 pages long...

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?

It's near impossible to find any resources that are free on there any more, I've just uploaded a load of free lessons for the new AQA 1-9 spec.

Hopefully it will encourage a few others to share their work with others?
