Geography Teaching & Online Learning Skills

Geography Teaching & Online Learning Skills

I well rememeber when at school we had to choose between history and geography and later, between sciences and the commercial subjects.  It seemed jolly hard to choose the first ones.  I loved both history and geography and have since growing up and being out in the world, found a greater appreciation for both subjects.  Especially in the heady world of quiz team membership.  I do recall that when the word careers was mentioned – usually in hushed tones, our geography teachers made a fantastic display in the careers section of the library where we were able to visit to get inspiration and ideas.  Today of course, teaching is even more critical than it was – so much seems to depend on getting the best out of students before they go to university.  The e-learning and on line courses available are absolutely fantastic and no student need sit there fretting.  Just don’t suggest to a geography teacher that all he needs is a box of coloured pencils!
