  • I remember my PGCE year at this point in time and it is summarised by this cartoon. Thanks to Alan Parkinson
  • aims
  • Not to take this literally, but learning should be an adventure and sometimes in order to have an adventure, things need to be difficult. Our pupils struggled with the social skills, confidence, work skills. Google Earth and other online maps are part of bringing that adventure in to the classroom as we study real places and explore the real world.
  • Don’t reinvent the wheel. Collaboration.
  • Remember that there is no one answer to teaching – everything is a tool in the box and our job as teachers is to select the most appropriate tools
  • Post it notes, random name generator. To share. Why draw – right brain thinking
  • Ofsted – without strong enquiry standards are difficult to achieve at GCSE and A’Level, especially with the move toward Controlled Assessment. Key Stage 3 is the foundation of success at GCSE and A-Level – enquiry is a life skill
  • Enquiry – key processes 2.1
  • Thanks to L Mulhall, Priory School
  • Young people need to make informed decisions
  • How would you support a Primary Research activity?
  • Enquiry at Priory – Use a random object – come up with 10 enquiry questions. Take along A3 charts
  • Closed, structures and open enquiry – progression, sheets. GCSE controlled assessment is an enquiry – now need to do it independently with 2009 GCSE changes.Progression.
  • PGCE’ers to describe the place. Asking questions. Geographical Detectives.
  • Senses –Thanks to Noel Jenkins
  • Thank you to Noel Jenkins
  • Use post it notes to explore personal rucsack – sense of place
  • Feelings slide, thanks Dan R-Ell
  • What enquiry questions could young people ask about this?
  • Asking questions. Activity with delegates
  • Asking questions and listening
  • How would we investigate this question? Who is it aimed at? Post It ideas. Use Google Earth to show how enquiry can be supported using GIS
  • Last Tram but Flickr user http://www.flickr.com/photos/lodekka/I grew up in the Rhondda, my father was under manager at Mardy Colliery during the strike. Flying pickets, conflict
  • Using Google maps to find out about Dubai
  • Flickr slideshow about Niagara Falls – places and generating questions
  • Challenging Misconceptions
  • Video - Ideas
  • Guerrilla Geography
  • Making a statement about space – what might an outside visitor think?
  • Favourite image – during the reflection stage of the lesson, pupils realised that they had been thinking about space in a different way – they chose features that they were unhappy about, or thought were great. So what do we do with this energy
  • What do pupils want to know? Pupil voice and how to incorporate it into the enquiry process, GCSE choice – curriculum co-contruction
  • Here pupils have used Google Earth to create placemarks that show that Portsmouth has changed.
  • How could we introduce enquiry to meet these needs – how long would we need? What level?
  • Google earth on site fieldwork – hypothesis – environmental impact assessment
  • Eco-saint, eco sinner – recycling links – from known to unknoown
  • Image: Flickr user http://www.flickr.com/photos/joriel/
  • Lesson idea: http://daviderogers.blogspot.com/2009/07/twitter-facebook-and-teachers-tv.htmlThank you to Tony Cassidy for the inspiration: www.sharegeography.com
  • Delegate activity – quick round the room one word
  • Image created using wordle.net
  • Use Year 7 Amazing Places SoW to identify enquiry opps
  • Resources : GE Noel’s resources, extracts from The Highways and Byways, Notes from a small island, lonely planet link, http://www.thestonehengeproject.org/history/findingasolution.shtmlhttp://www.heritageaction.org/?page=heritagealerts_stonehengeoldachievablestonehengehttp://maps.google.co.uk/maps?sourceid=navclient&hl=en-GB&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4DMUK_en-GBGB212GB212&q=stonehengehttp://arts.guardian.co.uk/news/story/0,,1889436,00.htmlhttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/2299033.stmEnglish heritage site
  • Pat on strike: Flickr user http://www.flickr.com/photos/cute-is-what-i-aim-for/Thanks to Jeff Stanfield, Geography Advisor for Hampshire, his term ‘Floating Topicality’Change is coming - Obama – cross curricular links with history, History teach the black rights movement in the 1960’s. Geography takes on the batton by looking at Obama, Royal Mail strikes – workers rights?. Take a moment to reflect on what is NOW.
  • Image created using www.worde.netDelegate activity – who’s speech? When?
  • 2. Use twitter to make case studies ‘Living’.Following various celebrities via Twitter. GCSE case study. What on earth is he on about? Using the GCSE textbooks to find information. Pupils had to create 6 140 character tweets in order to reply to Stephen. Reducing the text book. ‘Tweets’ can be used to create case study answers. Better than taking notes or answering textbook questions. The internet turns up 113,000 hits for ‘palm oil borneo’. Textbooks have carefully selected information that is relavant to the specification. Ideal for no ICT access as the tweet was supplied by myself.
  • Primary, secondary, tertiary – Ice axe. What we wear, palm oil
  • Interrogate Images from the textbook. Cut out worksheet – place on the images and allow pupils to ask questions
  • Using textbooks to support enquiry
  • Contact details. Feel free to contact. We have to collaborate.

  • Assessing enquiry - Stonehenge For such a celebrated site, Stonehenge has seen a surprising amount of upheaval over recent years. The tense stand-offs between solstice-goers and police have been replaced by a fresh controversy over the alleged mismanagement of the World Heritage site. Hemmed in by busy roads and wire barricades, jammed with visitors throughout the summer, and underscored by a cacophony of roaring traffic, its a long way from the haven of peace and spiritual tranquillity most visitors expect to find, and was even described by one government department as a national disgrace. Thankfully, plans are afoot to reinvent the Stonehenge experience. Lonely Planet, 2008. http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/england/sights/5185?list=true
