Geographical contexts to everyday situations explained

Geo Blogs at the RGS-IBG

Geo Blogs project was funded by an Innovative Geography Teaching Grant by the RGS-IBG.

On the 24th of November, the DfES, in association with the RGS, the GA and RM are running one of a series of roadshows on embedding 'ICT in Geography'. Sessions and workshops are being run by notable figures in Geography and the event is well worth attending if you're a Geography teacher.
Geo Blogs will be in the Learning Zone on the E:port stand, which is a collaboration of the DfES and Evaluate: a digital resource evaluation service.
Come and say hello

Geo Blogs

Just watching the latest edition of the BBC's Natural History of the UK. Some good locations and photography, and many of them I've visited.
How about setting up a blog of places you've been to - as you go somewhere new, add it to the list! Add images in words or pictures...
On the WORLD 66 site you can create a personalised map of the countries of the world you have visited.
The 'Teaching Geography' article featuring Geo Blogs is due to be published soon - perhaps that's why some of you are now reading this.

Apologies for the absence of the one of the sites featured in the article: Gavin Richards' excellent Geo Explorer site: one of the first sites to recognise the value of GeographyPages. Gavin has a new role as in E-learning, and hasn't been able to devote the considerable time needed to maintain a popular website. When his new site appears I'll let you know. Apart from anything else, this demonstrates the changeable nature of the Internet.

What about winter ?
There have been lots of stories suggesting the winter is going to be one of the coldest on record...
How about a WINTER blog ? Keep track of those cold, windy, dark days of winter...

Keep blogging!
