Twenty-Five Creative Ideas

The following is my presentation to the Leicester City Council Secondary Regional Geography and History Conference. It should go live an hour before the session.

My presentation can be downloaded from Slideshare or directly here (25mb ppt).

I hope people found this useful. I don’t suggest that any of the ideas are original; I’ve tried where possible to highlight the origins of the ideas or resources, unless they were created by myself.

Some direct links to resources and ideas. Feedback is always welcome.
