A few days ago I attended, in person, my first Geographical Association Annual Conference since 2019. The same was true of all other geography educators, since the last two had been totally online. This conference is for geography teachers, academics, exhibitors and students. It is always a wonderful event. Now that I have a podcast, I took the opportunity of grabbing my mobile recording equipment and doing a bit of recording for you all! Enjoy the listen.
A post for TDOV2021. While the narrative around decolonising education has largely coalesced around racial inequality and movements such as Black Lives Matter, and rightly so, gender diversity intersects exceptionally strongly with it.
The theme for @The_GA #GAConf21 is #CompassionateGeography - To reflect that, the programme is quite diverse! So the #DecolonisingGeography educators group have collated sessions of interest. Check it out and share widely!
For #BlackHistoryMonth, I had the pleasure of interviewing two inspirational young people, Akhera Williams and Sam Koffi of Reroot.Ed. Reroot.Ed is an educational campaign run by young black students. Their goal is to make the secondary school education system anti-racist, critical and inclusive.
