  • Look at the people around you on your table and have a quick hello if you haven’t already.
  • I’m a great believer in community and networked learning. Geography departments that I know of are often small and therefore it’s essential to reach out. We are a community or network in this room now – so we are going to work together
  • Write down ideas onto paper and place into a hat / display on the table etc etc.
  • How can we get Geography to tackle some of these boxes? We have the answer here. We are going to use a technique we use at Priory with students when we want them to be creative. First a warm up……

  • Giving Geographical context to skills and learnig
  • Sometimes it’s scary to reach out past the comfort of the known but if school geography is to expand we must be able to show
  • I know that we are often guilty of seeing X, Y and Z as Geography, this can be a knife edge balancing act as, the danger of which is falling off. I’d like to think of geographers as educators of children first, so reaching out to the wider curriculum aims is important. As leaders of geography we can show others how our subject can contribute and as teachers of geography we can easily incorporate these ideas
  • This conference is about a network and I would urge you to build your own networks whether they be face to face or virtual.
