Climate Change for Schools | Financial Times
Recently released and useful for older students. I really applaud the Financial Times’ efforts to offer students contemporary resources that challenge misconceptions and promote discussion.

These 1,000 hexagons show how global wealth is distributed - Big Think
Global patterns and classification of economic development 
These maps are a recent discovery and I incorporated them into a DP1 lesson last week [1.1.2 Global patterns of global development]. The approach the maps take is a little different from ‘normal’, which I like. On geographyalltheway.com you can roll over the maps and be zoomed in to see a bit more of the detail. If you want to print the whole map - it needs to be larger than A3.
Updates

Todoist: The to do list to organize work & life
I like a list, I like to feel ‘in control’ of what I need to get done. I have been using Todoist for at least the last 7 years and it is an app that I will open every day. I like the way it integrates with Gmail and Google Calendar. There are apps for about every platform possible. If you have a digital todo list manager sized gap in your life - I wholeheartedly recommend Todoist.
Did you enjoy this issue? Yes No

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!
