South West London network
We have established a new regional fieldwork network for secondary geography teachers based in South West London. The network will support and develop local fieldwork opportunities through shared knowledge and resources, and free fieldwork CPD.
Aims of the Network:
To share knowledge of fieldwork locations/ideas/resources
To share fieldwork equipment/developments in GIS
To collaborate specifically with A Level fieldwork
Share developments/concerns regarding GCSE controlled assessment
To support ‘best fieldwork practice' through quality CPD
Previous Event: Google Earth Training and Controlled Assessment Workshop
Date: Friday 9 July 2010
Venue: Tolworth Girls School, Surbiton
The free day of fieldwork CPD was divided into two sessions.
The morning session, led by Dr Eleanor Coulber, focused upon using Google Earth for pre-fieldwork activities and to present fieldwork data, including using Google Earth to create a flood risk map of an area.
As part of this network we have created a local fieldwork map. Ultimately, the map will contain fieldwork resources developed by teachers from across South West London. It is hoped that over time this will build into rich resource of local fieldwork ideas and activities for teachers working in South West London.
