Hi, I don't know the areas so don't know if this is relevant, but when we did regeneration fieldwork we gave them three sites over a transect leading away from the project (so next to the Etihad, 200m away and then a further 200 m away, for example), to see if they could make conclusions about how far the benefits of regeneration had spread. At each site they did a land use survey, a building quality survey and an environmental quality survey, and throughout they did questionnaires asking about the benefits of the project. As the project we had chosen only had very local impacts they had some great data to draw conclusions from, but I don't know Manchester so don't know if you would find anything similar. COuld they do something similar to judge which has had the widest impact, maybe?
General Discussion / Year 12 field trip - Urban Regeneration in Manchester
« Last post by ads on May 26, 2016, 04:14:50 PM »
Hi all,

I'm in the process of planning our Year 12 trip to The Etihad, Ancoats and Salford Quays to look at sports led/heritage led/property led regeneration respectively.  At present, it's very much a 'look-see' trip where students annotate maps, make notes etc.  I was wondering if this is how you guys approach similar trips or whether there is scope for doing something a bit different, especially with regard to data collection.  I'm open to suggestions and any help is appreciated.


Our policy is to ask for a contribution and we need around 90% to run. We use PP funding to cover those who can't pay and have a local authority fund for those is hardship.

General Discussion / Lulworth Cove

Hello, has anybody used the rangers at Lulworth to lead a field trip? If so, what was a successful enquiry title for this area? (preferably a physical question)  Did you also stay locally?

Any ideas gratefully received. I am hoping to take a Common Entrance group next year.

Thanks in advance

No more excuses of 'Sorry I was late, I got stuck in traffic!'  ;)
Interesting idea, wonder if it will ever get off the ground...

I wish this video had come out during my revision session for world issues! Will it ever be build though?
General Discussion / New Using Technology in the Classroom Website
« Last post by zaksali29 on May 26, 2016, 08:02:32 AM »
Hi All,

I'm slowly creating a website promoting the the use of Technology in the Classroom. The focus is on all subjects, however, there is a slant towards Geography, as naturally, I am a Geography teacher! For example, I've just uploaded a resource highlighting the use of Sim City in the Geography/Business classroom! Feel free to check out the site and if you like what you see, sign up to Facebook page for regular updates.


I am keen to share and am on a course after half term; I will see what the thoughts are there and then get back to you

We have used the Lost boys of Sudan.  They find the distance travelled and how they swim the rivers without getting eaten by crocodiles fascinating
