As the new school year starts, remember we have lots of resources to support with the teaching and learning of geography.
If your students are at the beginning of their geographical journey, our educational resources feature podcasts, animations and in-depth case studies on the full range of geographical topics, most of which are available for free. We also have plenty of advice on studying geography at school and beyond, from choosing geography at university to the rich variety of career paths available. Your students may want to further support their studies by joining the Society as one of our Young Geographers.
Alongside this, several of our partner organisations including Ordnance Survey and Esri UK have plenty of resources to engage pupils and inspire them to be curious and fascinated about the world, including Digimap for schools and ArcGIS online.
There is also still time for students to enter our Young Geographer of the Year competition. Run in partnership with Geographical magazine, for this year’s competition we are asking young people to create an annotated map which reveals how their lives have been shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. The deadline for entries is 5.00pm on Friday 1 October.
Over the coming months we are running a range of online and face-to-face events for teachers designed to enhance skills and provide up-to-date knowledge on a variety of topics. We have events suitable for everyone, including training with Ofsted on the primary and secondary geography curriculum, workshops on the use of ArcGIS and using of statistics in geography, as well as Teachmeets and subject updates - so there’s bound to be something to pique your interest.
