How do you know what you don’t know? - Issue #27
I have decided that I am going to add one of my photos, each week. I have plenty to share as I haven't been using Instagram much recently. I find myself scrolling through it mindlessly. So I will included one photo that I have taken each week - that probably hasn't been shared before on 'the socials'. Enjoy.
I'm not sure where I first read about proxi.co - but it sat in my list of 'things to try' for a while until I had a recent reason to use it → see the Morocco - Marrakesh and the Draa Valley page in the Updates section.
Proxi.co is like Google My Maps - but more user friendly. Quickly create maps to illustrate a location. You can easily embed the maps into websites - or simply share a link, a QR code or via various social platforms. Crowd-source (or class-source) locations by just sharing a URL (no need for student accounts) - plus you can hold shared locations until approved. I'm impressed what proxi.co has to offer for free. I know that they have various additional features in development and you will be finding more proxi maps embedded into geographyalltheway.com in the near future.

All IB DP Geography educators know about Section B of Paper 2. The infographic question. Some love it - some don't.
The Information is Beautiful 2022 showcase is a rich vein of data visualisations and infographics. Many of them are geographical - check out → 'Tornado Alley' is expanding | Hot and humid Olympic summer | New normal: How far is safe enough? | The misunderstood role of water in conflict
This trip was facilitated by Discover Ltd. The International School of Geneva - Campus des Nations has been working with Discover Ltd, for over 14 years, to create fantastic learning focused experiences in Morocco.
This new page on geographyalltheway.com, published at the weekend, aims to document our most recent student trip to Morocco. I wanted to show the masses of teaching opportunities there are - demonstrating how a fantastic student experience can also be very rich with quality teaching moments closely linked to a teaching specification.
This week's recommendation is for a decent power bank - and with Christmas fast approaching it's time to ask Santa for one. I have the model above and have had for a while. It's not really small - it's more 'slip it in your rucksack' rather than 'pop it in your pocket'. I like the fact that it has two outputs - so can charge my phone and watch overnight - or in the back of the car on a long journey - that's an output per teenager. It can also be used for a couple of days before it needs recharging. Recommend!
