Does an article that you are about to share with your students pose any questions? Are there more questions in an editorial article rather than a normal one?

Migration Data Explorer: Where do people migrate from and to? - Our World in Data
The causes and consequences of forced migration and internal displacement 
Recently released by the ‘Gods of Geography’ that are ‘Our World in Data’, is this rather useful visualization tool. Select a country and then explore the emigrants and immigrants on either map or chart. The data can be viewed as a table and all the data can be downloaded.

Teacher Inspection Trips
geographyalltheway.com has a partnership with Discover the World Education. It is brilliant to hear that after the chaos and upheaval of the last couple of years Discover the World Education is again organising Teacher Inspection visits.
Matt Podbury and I were lucky enough to be involved in such an inspection visit, which focused upon teachers from International Schools in June 2019, and can’t recommend the services of Discover the World Education enough!

Stream Deck Mini | elgato.com
Super geeky this week! A Stream Deck is like an additional programmable keyboard. Each of the buttons is actually a tiny screen so you can choose what is there and how things are represented.
What do I use one for? I have mine set up to a whole range of different keyboard shortcuts that copy URLs and add links to the services I use such as Pocket, Raindrop.io, Flipboard, and Trello. Other buttons trigger screenshots or copy text from images and then adding it to my clipboard. I can control my music, the TV, and the lights in living room. Lastly - I am experimenting with the use of OBS with online training and the Stream Deck allows me to have different screens/views shared at the click of a button.

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!
