The final day of #GAeConf20 caused my mind to blow on several ocassions. Corn-starch glaciers, twisty graphs, and more challenge from a radical geographer. It's been quite a ride. Thank you, Geographical Association! #geographyteacher
Setting myself a challenge to name apparently arbitary regions of Europe led me to realise that identity is an important aspect of 'place'. Do you think you could have a go?
Without delving too much into politics, it is of this geographer's opinion that current affairs demonstrate how crucial the current need is for critical thinking. This blog entry looks into the importance of thinking critically, a tool to help fight 'fake news', and some resources to demonstrate that teaching skills (like critical thinking) can happen in tandem with teaching content.
