Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR
This course is aimed at Key Stage 1 and 2 teachers who are interested in developing spatial awareness skills linked to the Primary Geography curriculum.
The event will be a fully interactive face-to-face session split into two parts.
Part one will cover basic mapping skills, scale, symbols, contours, grid references and using a compass
The second part of the session will focus on the award winning Digimap for Schools website. We will cover how to make best use of the online mapping service and embed mapping not just into geography, but across your curriculum as a whole. Darren Bailey from the Ordnance Survey will work through its functionality, map layers and more during a demonstration, and will also provide ideas on how to use Digimap for Schools with KS1 and KS2 students. Delegates will have access to laptops to use the product during the session and get a feel for how it can be used to teach primary geography and more.
Digimap for Schools is an award-winning online mapping service for use by teachers and pupils. With an intuitive interface, easy to understand tools and instructions, and no download or new software installation required, a teacher or a pupil can easily understand and start to use the service as soon as they log on. Digimap for Schools supports cross-curricula teaching of geography, maths, literacy and history, and also enables teachers and pupils to gain critical digital and data skills.
