How do you know what you don’t know? - Issue #14

I recently updated 1.2.1 Population change to make use of the 2021 World Population Data Sheet.
IB DP Geographers
This free resource from the Financial Times is useful for numerous elements of the IB DP Geography course. The language used on the 'Visual Vocabulary' helps students develop their descriptions and commentary upon infographics. The resource also helps discussions about data presentation in student Internal Assessments and Extended Essays.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the 2022 Geographical Association Conference held at the University of Surrey in Guildford, UK.
I was involved in the presentation of two sessions, as well as livestreaming the annual TeachMeet, and organising the Beer Meet. The webpage above shares the slides I used, important links, and the recording of the TeachMeet. It is all worth an explore.
This is an update upon a 'Random' recommendation from Issue #8. Raindrop.io - the bookmarking service that I recommend - now allows you to highlight web content. This is a great addition and therefore worth another mention in this newsletter.
To take things a couple of steps more geeky → using IFTTT (a service I will probably recommend in a future issue) you can do things such as automatically add highlights to a document or a spreadsheet.
