Briggsy - you're nearly understanding it....

Yes, all students answer a multiple choice question at the end of the lesson. I take in their exit card and mark their answer with a red, amber or green dot (three minutes to mark a class set maximum). The exit cards are then returned at the start of the next lesson. On the board there are three questions, called red, amber and green. Red and amber ask students to revisit their notes, or a textbook, and iron out an misconceptions, green stretches the most able.

If you look here you'll see an example: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cr21sn8rej7kcmm/DIRTy%20Geography%20-%20HOD%20briefing.pptx?dl=0

You'll be able to see the coloured dots (my marking) and student follow up (slide 4), the original question (slide 1) and the follow-up question (slide2).

Hope this helps.

I remember having to get land use maps from the OS for a land use survey of an area of Nottingham City centre. Can't exactly remember how I got them but I do remember having to pay. I could have a look if you're struggling

Dave, I really like the idea of the exit cards being used to clear up misconceptions/stretch&challenge but can't quite get my head around how it works in practice. 
Am I right in thinking you pose a multiple choice question at the end of a session which they have to answer.  When they come back in the next session they then have to answer a further question.  I understand how this stretches the students who "get it", but not sure how it helps the students who didn't. Also, how do you know what they answered/which question they should answer? Do you have to have marked their work between every session?

Just had a student hand in their Haiti Earthquake case study using this software:

Brilliant application and free to. Now they can create their own infographics - a nice way to liven up their case studies!

Have you taught Economic Development yet?

It'll be on either Aid and Development or the environmental impacts of economic activity (or words to that effect).

It you haven't started yet, focus on sustainability and its different dimensions i.e. social, econ and envtl.
