How do you know what you don’t know? #1
For all geographers - based on bigger ideas, and everyday geographies.
I am starting 2022 with some positive geographies! Who has the 'most young people', and who has the 'highest life expectancy'?
IB DP Geographers
Something that is more focused on the needs of IB DP geographers, educators, and students.
"Just like cities represent a colossal alteration of the landscape and thus the natural water cycle, we’re also going through a colossal shift in how we think about rainfall and stormwater and how we value the processes of natural watersheds."
I am currently covering the Freshwater unit with my DP1 class. Therefore, I am reflecting on what I have done before, checking links, and adding new resources to geographyalltheway.com. I found this video useful when looking at the link between urbanization, and flood risk. Most of our students live in urban areas but few have thought about how the drainage system around/beneath them works.
The Practical Engineering channel is worth a look for other useful videos. It has nearly two and a half million subscribers!
A quick update on something I am working on.
I use Trello or organise my lessons, reflect on lessons, and store the 'new' resources and materials I find.
I publicly share my DP1 lesson schedule via Trello here. It may be useful for fellow educators interested in how I pace, and deliver the content. My Higher Level students get three ninety minute lessons a week, and Standard Level students attend two of them.
Probably a bit techie, an app, an online service, or similar.
I said this section would be a little random! I am an 'Apple user' - iPhone, iPad, and MacBook (but teach nearly exclusively using a Chromebook).
