Thanks  :)

I am a student, researching the question 'Is geothermal energy the main volcanic reason that people live on the volcanic island, Iceland'. I am comparing geothermal energy, fertile soils, minerals eg gold ect, and tourism as the reasons that people still live in Iceland and are ready to face the volcanic impacts that come with living in Iceland. I understand that there are other reasons, such as families living on the island for generations, but I am ignoring these, and focusing on the reasons that come as a result of the volcanic activity in Iceland. I was wondering if anyone on this sight has any information on this subject, or even better if anyone specialises in this field and could give me their opinion on the matter. Any Icelanders and their opinion would also obviously be very useful. Thanks

You could get them doing something with http://www.stopdisastersgame.org/en/home.html if you have the ICT access?

« Last post by hbrookes on February 09, 2017, 10:14:59 AM »
This hands-on taster session is brought to you by the Global Learning Programme (GLP) to introduce global learning and the positive impact it can have on pupils' engagement, knowledge, skills and values. It will focus on how you can use a range of freely available web tools to develop pupils’ understanding of some key concepts in global learning, connect with places, events (and people) in distant locations and construct their own global stories by selecting and assembling a range of images and text.

Bury St Edmunds – Wednesday 15 March 2017

We have subscribed to the print magazine for a since September 15 now and have found the articles to be invaluable updates!

We don't however, subscribe to the archive, so I was wondering if it's possible to buy single issues of the magazine without having to buy the archive? There is an article from Feb 2015 on non-communicable diseases which will be useful for my Year 13 Food and Health students.

Thanks for any help

To this day, I still love Noel Jenkins' Montserrat DME lesson - one of my favorite lessons to teach.

Does anybody have a similar activity or any exciting earthquake lessons?
