GA CPD for GLP that I'm leading

  1. 1. Using free web tools to strengthen global knowledge CPDTraining Courses from the Geographical Association Further information and online booking are available at CPD Overview This course will explore ways of using a range of freely available web tools to further students’ understanding of key concepts in global learning. As National Curriculum 2014 arrives, the need to strengthen global knowledge will become more important and technology can allow access to topical and contemporary material and connections with people, places and events in distant locations. It can also allow students to undertake a more nuanced exploration of inequality by constructing their own global stories; selecting and assembling a range of images and text to develop their understanding of, and empathy for, others. Delegates will be introduced to and shown how to use new tools, such as ArcGIS Online, Google Drive, Gapminder, Worldmapper, Triptico and Big Huge Labs, as well as social media, such as Twitter, Pinterest and Flipboard, for exploring global learning concepts. Delegates will contribute to the creation of a framework for a new unit of work for KS2 or 3 so that everyone leaves with a new resource to use immediately and a focus for further work to consolidate the new skills that have been learned. Aims and outcomes This course will enable you to: n identify appropriate web tools to support and augment traditional teaching on global themes of globalisation, inequality and interdependence n leave with ready-to-use ideas as well as longer-term goals for personal professional development n network with other colleagues n contribute to a collaborative resource which will grow as National Curriculum 2014 comes into use Presenter Alan Parkinson, Teacher of Geography, King’s Ely School, Cambridgeshire, freelance author and geographical consultant. For teachers of KS3 geography, but also suitable for Y6 teachers London Thursday 12 June 2014 York Tuesday 8 July 2014
