The causes and consequences of forced migration and internal displacement
Recently released by the 'Gods of Geography' that are 'Our World in Data', is this rather useful visualization tool. Select a country and then explore the emigrants and immigrants on either map or chart. The data can be viewed as a table and all the data can be downloaded.
geographyalltheway.com has a partnership with Discover the World Education. It is brilliant to hear that after the chaos and upheaval of the last couple of years Discover the World Education is again organising Teacher Inspection visits.
Matt Podbury and I were lucky enough to be involved in such an inspection visit, which focused upon teachers from International Schools in June 2019, and can't recommend the services of Discover the World Education enough!
Stream Deck Mini packs infinite control into six keys, all poised to trigger unlimited actions upon a single tap. All primed to give you instant visual feedback as you switch scenes, launch media, tweet and much more. All so you can focus on what matters most: your audience.
Super geeky this week! A Stream Deck is like an additional programmable keyboard. Each of the buttons is actually a tiny screen so you can choose what is there and how things are represented.
What do I use one for? I have mine set up to a whole range of different keyboard shortcuts that copy URLs and add links to the services I use such as Pocket, Raindrop.io, Flipboard, and Trello. Other buttons trigger screenshots or copy text from images and then adding it to my clipboard. I can control my music, the TV, and the lights in living room. Lastly - I am experimenting with the use of OBS with online training and the Stream Deck allows me to have different screens/views shared at the click of a button.
