Arriving at the Aiguille du Midi, February 2023
⚙ Operational notes
Last week was a week off from the newsletter. This week is all about videos.
🌍 All Geographers
Exams are on the horizon, and conversations are turning to revision. 🔗 Ali Abdaal is a “YouTuber, Podcaster, ex-Doctor, and soon-to-be Author” with nearly four million YouTube subscribers. I use several of his videos when talking to my students about revision skills and active recall methods. 🔗 How to study for exams - Evidence-based revision tips [released in 2018] is a super useful classic and leads conversations towards using tools such as 🔗 Anki. Ali’s recent video 🔗 How to Stay Focused While Studying - Evidence-based Tips is another video that is worth sharing with your students.
🧑🎓 IB DP Geographers
The 🔗 DW Documentary YouTube channel is a gold mine of content useful for the teaching of IB DP Geography. Here are just a few examples from their page of recent uploads →
🔗 Climate change in the Netherlands - Pioneering coastal management
Take a moment to check out a page I have built to support the teacher inspection tour to Morocco that I am involved in leading → 🔗 Teacher inspection tour to Morocco - October 2023.
Who is going to 🔗 BETT in London at the end of March? If you fancy meeting up to say ‘Hi’ and have a coffee - let me know!
While reviewing some content as I was preparing for a lesson on 🔗 oil extraction in northern Alaska, I came across this rather lovely story about the 🔗 Refuge de la Charpoua. Enjoy.
