Brighton and Hove network

Brighton and Hove fieldwork events have been held at Cardinal Newman Catholic School since March 2008, under the organisation and leadership of Graham Goldup.

In March 2008, the Brighton and Hove Citywide INSET day focused on local fieldwork. Teachers worked collaboratively to update their traditional approaches to fieldwork in the local area with a range of new ideas and techniques. They focused on a range of sites in close vicinity to their schools, including Hove town centre, the King Alfred leisure centre, Devil's Dyke and Brighton sea front.

In April 2009, the Brighton and Hove Citywide INSET day again focused on fieldwork - but this time on fieldwork in the school grounds. Again, teachers were encouraged to work collaboratively to come up with new ideas for their fieldwork, but on this occasion the focus was particularly on developing Google Earth skills. Teachers used digital camera and GPS equipment to take and locate photos around the extensive Cardinal Newman school grounds. They then spent the afternoon session uploading points, photos and video clips into Google Earth, drawing polygons and creating tours and paths. They also came up with ideas for how all of their new skills could be integrated into fieldwork programmes for their students.
