I’ve been enjoying having a play with the Draw Something app, since students introduced it to me. This week it has become one of the fastest selling of all time. It’s a little like taboo but on your favourite device.
Jumping on the bandwagon, until they produce a geography version, I’ve produced some cards (1 mb ppt) which I’ll be using during Easter revision. Feel free to adapt, or get students to produce their own version.
Each student in my Key Stage 3 classes has adopted an Africa country this term. We have been answering the register with our country and capital each lesson, but this week each student produced a top trump for their country, which lead to some interesting debate. Once finished we intend to have a big game!
Template can be downloaded from here. (PPT 136kb).
Boardworks have released some free content to help geography educators support teaching about the summer riots. As part of this I provided a few ideas that could be used.
Thanks to Alan for updating my presentation with the new features… (not sure what’s gone off with the first slide?)
A range of videos that might be useful to colleagues. Which ones would you add? Thanks to Kelly for bringing to his my attention.
Animoto have updated their education programme allowing easier use for students. We had a play with this last term, brilliant tool.
Thanks to Pauline for sharing this resource, a great number of images related to a range of curriculum areas.
