Radical Update…

radicalheader1new I’ve now reorganised by web projects. My personal domain name will be the gateway to my various projects. I’ve also now sorted the layout of Radical Geography and will begin to update the content in the New Year. The Pilot Blog will announce new resources for Key Stage 4 and Share Geography will announce new content for key Stage 3. So please check your RSS feeds. I imagine in the future there will be a Key Stage 5 blog for the new sixth form, if we get a cohort together. Radical Geography and the gateway now have a custom Google search engine. In the meantime I have produced a Top-Ten downloads page for 2007 ,as a pre-Christmas present to colleagues, some surprisingly resources were favourites.

I debated long and hard about whether to just finish Radical Geography or turn it into a subscription site and actually make some income from it. Making income from it is against my educational principles (and could be challenged by my employer, luckily I have one that sees the benefits of such work), but I continued to be frustrated by demanding emails from individuals who were happy to take, or make criticism, but not able to respond to my efforts on their behalf; the same individuals who were happy to take my ideas and call them their own, or in some cases use them at interviews,or even send them back to me! I’m not an expert, the sites are my own work and at my own expense, when people download it costs me money. I also make no claims about the quality of the resources or whether they are any good. I’m a teacher, not an educational consultant.

The reason I do it, because teaching is hard and if someone can save time by using one of my resources and students within the classroom benefit, then I get a warm glow inside. 🙂 All I ask is a little feedback, positive and constructive, now and then.

As do a number of colleagues ,who continue to share their ideas, in order that our body of knowledge, creativity and practice moves forward… 🙂

    Welcome back Radical Geography !
    Maybe this will put a stop to all those “can someone send me Postman Pat” requests on SLN… 😉

    I’ve reread this and it sounds a little like a Sermon, hey nevermind it is what I felt.

    Postman Pat, it had 7000 downloads in 2007, 5000 in 2006. I fancy doing a David Bowie Ziggy Stardust on it. 🙂
