Spent a day this week in the Peak District, visited Peak Cavern.
Conducted velocity measurements using flow meters.
And mourned damage to the most inappropriate fieldwork bag ever.
Talking of fieldwork, picked up on a tip off from Alan Parkinson about the Enhancing Fieldwork Blog.
I did some online INSET about my use of technology via Google Talk to another school in Derbyshire. A first for me, sat at home in the backroom. I didn’t really do it justice, it was hard to speak about ideas without the visual prompts available and it was hard to strike up a dialogue. I hope some of the colleagues took at least one idea away. I have to say thanks to the Year 10 ICT leaders, who managed my session, without them it would have been a massive mess!
We finished and dispatched our sample for the controlled assessment for the CEA Geography Spec. Thanks to Graeme Eyre for writing three posts concerning the specification, derived from a recent support meeting for English centres.
Congratulations to David Rogers who’s Long Shore Drift video won one of the prizes on the Dream Teachers video competition.
Had a request about a crime scheme I wrote nearly eight years ago, and lead me to rediscover Geointeractive.
Also said a goodbye to one of my education mentors who retired this week, enjoy the rest Mr Warrington, a true gentleman. I shall never forget my interview grilling.
After what seems an endless term, I’m off to have a rest. Happy Easter.
