The Life Geographic: A somewhat self-absorbed personal and professional development blog of an ex-Geography high-school teacher…
Last update: 30th June 2021
Take time and enjoy browsing my video catelogue below. Videos are all free to view. Some captions under the videos have clickable links, which will take you to a page or blog post giving you more information, ideas, links, references and related resources.
Towards the bottom of the page you can find videos and media by others in which I made a guest appearance – some talking shop, some more personal, some geeking out over a hobby!
🌐 CURRENT AFFAIRS & GEOGRAPHICAL ISSUES
Lectures, talks and commentary on geographical issues. Good for diving deeper into a particular topic, brushing up on background knowledge or getting the up-to-date geographical news. Use whole videos or clips from them with your students.
🌱 CPD, TUTORIALS & TRAINING
Recordings of talks, webinars or tutorials. A range of things from helping teachers to put more feathers in their caps and tools in your teaching stategy toolboxes, to learning specific geographical skills or tools – both for teachers and students.
⚙️ behind the geography
Videos which explore and spotlight work which goes on ‘behind the scenes’ to bring us the Geography and Science that we teach. When we teach data, someone has collected it. When we teach a process or theory, there is a team which are furthering their understanding of it…
Interviews conducted with professionals, hobbists, enthusaists and more, who share thoughts, insights, resources and tips to support teaching and learning.
I do love to dabble a little in a bit of creative writing and performance. Here are some productions which wax lyrical, some of which have tips for teaching and learning embedded in them!
FIELD TRIP TO THE USA (2012)
In 2012 I was very lucky to take a small group of high-school students to the Yellowstone National Park area of the United States. I made seven ‘episodes’ of our time out there, each of which has clips which can be used for teaching and learning. Episode 3 is available as a ‘sample’, eventually I’ll get around to remastering all the episodes and they will appear here.
🤝 MADE FOR OTHERS
Commissioned productions and videos made as part of work for others.
Random clips and snippets of unedited videos etc.
🎬 Behind the scenes
Here’s a little video showing the ‘behind the scenes’ to my green screen setup here in my solar-powered garden shed!

Let’s build something together
Interested in collaborating on a video? Would you like to nominate yourself or a colleague for an interview and tell the teaching community about your work?
