Turning on to 2014 geography lessons

Welcome to the 2014 school year. One of our first tasks is to 'switch-on' to the subject of geography and all that it encompasses.  Here are just a few of the great video resources on-line to develop your geographical "sense of wonder, curiosity and respect about places, people, cultures and environments throughout the world."
Hard not to develop that sense of wonder and curiosity after watching these videos. It is also worth having a look at the Spatialworlds blogpost from 2012 titled: The WOW factor of geography: WOW = World of Wonder!

Welcome to GeogSplace, a blog to explore place and space through the study of geography. There is no such word as splace but I thought it would be an interesting way to get us to think that geography is very much about both the study of place and space, so why not splace?


Some questions to consider and something to go over

Here are some questions and a PowerPoint presentation to consider in our first weeks together. Enjoy!!

I would love you to try to make your responses to the questions via the Moodle Forum.
