I use Geopack and they often offer good deals and discount depending on how much you order.

Hello,

This is a link to the 2016 old GCSE AQA A Ning.

Am just wondering if one for the new GCSE has been set up?

Thanks

General Discussion / Re: River study sites in NW England?

Not an area I know well, I'm afraid.  It might be worth checking out the websites of local field centres (and even local schools where there are geog dept pages) to find out which rivers they use?

General Discussion / Twitter as a teaching tool?
« Last post by davevade on April 20, 2016, 03:18:07 PM »
Hi all,

I'm currently completing a project for the Prince's Teaching Institute and I wondered if as many of you as possible could complete a survey about how you use Twitter (and other social media) as a teaching tool?

The link is as follows: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/12byFdblpMx9hiSmdcp0a29OiYXhJhAp3gaQhrfty85s/viewform?usp=send_form

It will only take 5 minutes and hopefully make a big difference!!

Thanks in advance!  ;D

We are based in Brighton so get the group to met us at Gatwick airport and get picked up. Works for us and it's good to allow the parents to say goodbye.

We got the school minibuses to the airport to keep cost down, a coach would have been a crazy amount of money! We did have to beg for drivers though, especially for the outward flight which meant we had to leave school at 3.30am...
I have never met pupils at the airport, had a few picked up there once or twice and that usually works well. If your school are ok with it then it may be a good cost saving plan!

General Discussion / New overview on inequality and use of statistics
« Last post by steve brace on April 19, 2016, 01:47:16 PM »
Hi - just to mention we've just published another of our overviews - this one is If the line fits: inequality, statistics and The Spirit Level and provides an overview to different statistical approaches and techniques for exploring inequality - esp with a focus on census data.

Available on this link http://www.rgs.org/OurWork/Schools/Teaching+resources/Key+Stage+5+resources/Key+Stage+5+resources.htm 

Over coming months we'll also be running a series of CPD events to support the use of data skills in geography and for the full listing of the events see www.rgs.org/dataskills.

Best wishes

Steve
