How do you know what you don’t know? - Issue #18
To keep on top of developing news stories that may be useful to the teaching of geography I follow a lot of blogs. I use a service called Feedly to do so - using Reeder on my Mac, iPhone and iPad to read them.

Our "virtually perfect" online workshops use Zoom as a platform. The length of each workshop is 15 hours spread over 2 ½ days comprising 8 x 80 minutes synchronous sessions with a further 4 hours 20 minutes of asynchronous engagements.

To facilitate the networking of the Swiss IB Geography Teachers Network and to help organise the annual meeting I have created a dedicated LinkedIn group. This will be the one place for all things Swiss and DP Geography based.
If you are an DP Geography teacher working in Switzerland - or close to Switzerland's border - please join the group!
Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an additional layer of protection beyond passwords. Download our free app today and follow our easy to use guides to protect your accounts and personal information.

Authy allows you to sync your 2FA set ups and therefore is my app of choice at the moment.
