Hi everyone,
As a new Head of Department I am looking to promote the use of ipads within the Geography classroom.
There are thousands of apps available, but was wondering whether some of you have had more success with some apps than others?

I look forward to hearing some of your suggestions and collaborating with you.

This course will enable teachers to plan for the new independent investigation (or Non- Examined Assessment – NEA), which is a requirement common to all four English geography A level specifications. The session will include advice on organising fieldwork to encompass the requirements of the NEA, different types of data requirements (primary and secondary, quantitative and qualitative) and the new mark scheme.

Hi everyone,

It's coming around to subject choice/surviva again and we're hoping to put together some stand alone lessons that really cover the breadth of geography, it's importance and application in today's world. aka doing all the fun and exciting things you can in 48mins per week!

Every year the kids favourite lessons are the Montserrat volcanic eruption dme and subsequent rebuilding so looking for topic ideas and activities that can create those impact moments 

What are your favourite lessons and topics that could be done? (Can have access to chrome books or iPads on the odd occasion)  Looking forward to hearing from you
