Published on

The inclusion of spatial technologies in the Australian Curriculum: Geography needn't be seen as a problem for primary teachers, rather an opportunity to transform the way you teach geography. Most teachers don't know that there are plentiful resources freely available online that can be used to help incorporate spatial technologies into their day-to-day teaching. Mick will demonstrate the best resources in a hands-on lab. All resources demonstrated will be freely available for teachers to access online at their leisure.
