Okay so this is something new I’m trying a new monthly feature on things that stand out to me. This could be anything from teachers to follow on twitter, interesting pedagogical practices, recently shared resources, news stories etc. Suggestions welcomed.
I’m starting with 10 Geography Teachers to follow on Twitter, these are people I regularly interact with, follow links posted or magpie ideas from. There are many more I could add but I really can’t spend all day writing a post. So in NO particular order.
Can often be found causing a stir, shares a great deal of insightful articles, links and resources for the everyday teacher and/or geographer. Writes about geography, pedagogy and wellbeing at http://www.davidrogers.blog/.
Head of Geography Regularly shares great teaching practice for the geographer and general teacher alike. A particular stand out example has to be IDEAL. Check it out here. Hoping she might write a guest post for us all soon (hint, hint).
Head of Humanities, main subject Geography. Shares some excellent resources, most of which are freely available on TES. Provides lots of inspiration for creative teaching techniques.
Head of Geography You would have probably come across Matt’s site at one time or another – http://www.geographypods.com/. I use it regularly now that I teach the International Baccalaureate. Whilst a bit quieter on the old twitter front these days (mastering the work/life balance I hope) but still shares a range of great ideas, articles and links.
This list could go on for a lot longer, unfortunately I do not have the time to continue it now but might add to it as time goes on.
Please feel free to share any particular recommendations you have for geographers to follow on twitter in the comments.
