What is the address for the Edexcel A ning? Didn't know there was one, thought everything was through schoology!
General Discussion / Edexcel A new GCSE resource sharing

I have set up a Onedrive shared folder for the new 9-1 spec which currently has about 10GB of resources in it for the Urban and Development units of work.

If anyone would like to be added to the shared folder, please let me know.  I've posted on the Ning as well and we are up to a dozen or so contributors.

That is AMAZING.

(the sandbox, that is). Bernard's watch is obviously also great.

I didn't even have enough money left over to joing the GA this year.  But if I did.....

Interactive sand pit

Or, you could combine with pupil premium budget and buy Bernard's Watch which would double as an intervention tool.

something super basic like a decent colour printer, and ink for it, would be the most useful thing I could imagine!
Do you have a way of projecting tablets onto the IWB like apple tv or similar? That might be useful. Or subscriptions to online journals/services/the GA/kerboodle etc?
Also I don't know what a visualiser is.. Will google it now.

We have been asked for requests for anything technology based for our departments!

Does anybody have anything that they have used successfully that might be a good bet?

We have IWB, visualisers and tablets, so am looking for different things. Has anybody used any tracking software or any other software? Any apps that are worth purchasing? Any bits of kit basically!

Thank you in advance

I agree with the person up thread who said IGCSEs are more straightforward.

AQA 1/2 certificate - exam cohort this summer (2017) is the last of this syllabus. AQA are then binning the IGCSE for Geog.

Edexcel - current year 10 are the last through on the current syllabus. It then changes from 1 X 3 hour paper to 2 papers. They have also changed the grading system to the 1-9. The new syllabus is not much different from the old syllabus BUT you need to do 2 lots of field work.

CIE - the only one I am not teaching at the moment!

Good luck!
