Back to the positive vibes of issue #1 → Information is Beautiful is another useful source of infographics. This particular infographic looks at their pick of the most positive trends, amazing achievements, and creative solutions of the year. A useful lesson starter or something to use in tutor/mentor time.

ToK [Theory of Knowledge] and IB DP Geography | Flipboard
If you a teacher of IB DP Geography you should be making efforts to integrate ‘Theory of Knowledge’ into your lessons. This Flipboard magazine may help. This is where I (and others) ‘flip’ news articles that have ‘ToK themes’ within them. If anybody uses Flipboard and would like to become a contributor to this magazine - please just drop me an email.

TextSniper - Capture and extract any text from your Mac's screen | images
This little app is super useful. It’s not free - but the best things tend not to be! If there is some text in an image, in a scanned document or on a awkwardly produced PDF file that you want to copy - use this app. You click and drag to highlight the area of the text (a bit like doing a screenshot) and the ‘text’ in that area is copied to your clipboard. Useful for copying text from slides in webinars and videos.

How do you know what you don’t know? is about spreading some of the things that I am finding useful and sharing it in an easily accessible and digestible way.

The first item will be for all geographers based on bigger ideas and everyday geographies. The idea behind the second item is something that is more focused on the needs of IB DP geographers, educators and students. The item will be linked to the syllabus but other geography educators and students may find it useful too. The third section is a quick update on something I am working on. New content added to, or refreshed on geographyalltheway, something I have recently written, or am involved in. The fourth and final item will be a bit more random. It will be a recommendation. Probably a bit techie, an app, an online service, or similar.

The ‘How do you know what you don’t know?’ newsletter is free, and isn’t (just) for geographyalltheway subscribers. I will try to keep the links to content behind the geographyalltheway.com paywall to an absolute minimum!
