How do you know what you don’t know? - Issue #26
Apologies for the break of a couple of weeks due to work commitments and travel. I have not long returned from a fantastic field trip experience with a group of DP Geography students, to Morocco, with Discover Ltd. I am working on a page of resources that links the 'teaching opportunities' to the 'experience' and I will share it as soon as it is finished.
Since 2014, the Good Country Index has provided a different way of looking at the world
I rather like this site and will be using it with my DP Geographers when we look at ranking countries in terms of levels of development as well as 'power'. I like the way you can turn the various 'contributions' on and off. Which do you need to turn off to remove Sweden from their top spot?

Our World in Data is one of my 'DP Geography Essential' websites and I always breathe a sign of relief when they have just the graph, map or visualisation that I was looking for to illustrate a syllabus point or similar.
Our World in Data are redesignIng the presentation and organisation of their content - and they have started with 'poverty'.
I guess this one is a little bit 'naughty' and I actually try to steer clear of paywalls when looking for teaching resources (ironic I know - as I charge for access to geographyalltheway.com). However there are times when you want to check an article that keeps appearing in searches - or somebody you follow (and trust the actions of) shares a link to a paywall protected article on social media. For these times there is 12ft.io.
It works as sites want Google to index their content so they show up in search results. So the site does't block the 'Google crawler' as it indexes such content. The Google crawler will cache a copy of the site every time it crawls it and 12ft.io directs you to this.
