How do you know what you don’t know? - Issue #20
A lovely article to leave you with for the summer! Enjoy.
IB DP Geographers
I realise that podcasts.geographyalltheway.com was also in last week's newsletter - but I have been doing some focused work on the 'app' so I thought is was worth an extra share!
I have added two playlists; one on Wicked Problems and the other is titled 'Road trip'. The Wicked Problems playlist focuses on the 'big issues' that the IB DP Geography course touches. The 'Road Trip' playlist includes some of the most fun and engaging podcasts, ideal to listen to when travelling.
I intend to add another two playlists before the end of the year. Any suggestions for their focus?
When not in the Geography classroom I spend my time collaborating with and supporting my colleagues with the effective and efficient use of digital technologies. Enjoy this video that we released last week to show (potential) students and parents what we do.
I use a range of apps to organise and store the things I do. Pocket (for initially storing things I want to read), Todoist (for what I need to do and when), and Roam Research (for making, storing and organising notes) have all been mentioned in previous newsletters.
I also use Trello on a near daily basis. I use it to store and sequence big projects. If I find something useful (a YouTube clip or article) it will probably get thrown into Pocket until I have time to sit down and think about it. I might use it in my teaching or resource development. If the resource is deemed worthy of being added to my teaching resources - it gets inserted in to a massive Trello board that has all my DP Geography lessons from geographyalltheway.com on. When I come to reteach a topic, I review geographyalltheway.com in combination with resources and ideas stored in the Trello board.
