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.
The first of, hopefully many, Geogramblings interviews! I talk to Kate O'Donnell from the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco for Discover the World Education's "International Connections" TeachMeet (broadcast on Thursday 11th June 2020). This blog post gives the full 10-minute edit of the interview, where you can get some examples of teaching & learning resources for your Science, Geography lessons and beyond, no matter where you are in the world! If you like 'geographers' interviewing 'geographers', a plug is also given to a rather Curious Geographer!
Day two of @The_GA's #GAeConf20 - Not only do I share-on amazing practice and ideas from the #geographyteacher community, but also reflect on how vital such engagements are, especially in times like these.

As I sit, about to embark across the Atlantic once again, I reflect over the past few months and look ahead. How time can be cruel as it speeds away...
