Wicked problems -
A resource I built recently for one of those, ‘between end of year exams and the end of the year proper’, type lessons for my Higher Level class. It looks to define wicked problems, look for them in the IB DP guide, look at one through the 5Ps (we add an extra P here in Geneva), and then look for articles in the Financial Times to explain complexity. I hope others find the idea/structure useful.
I have been working away in the background to rebuild this app, to ensure it continues to fulfil its function of curating podcasts for IB DP Geography students and educators. If you ever find a podcast that you feel would be a useful addition, please just let me know and I’ll get it added (once I have had a listen).
I have been doing a lot of the rebuilding with the support of ‘Glide Expert’ Roldano Zappalà from He has been understanding, responsive, and professional during all our interactions as we work to make better!
Chirpty has been around for awhile but it was during the recent 2022 Geographical Association Conference that I was reminded of it.
Chirpty generates an image that displays the users you interact with the most on Twitter.
It would seem that users I interact with the most are → @DTW_Education,@gatwUpdates, @MattPodbury, @EcolintGeneva, @digitaltech_edu, @The_GA, @ft4s and @googleearth. There must be good reason for all those interactions 😉.

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 paywall to an absolute minimum!
