podcasts.geographyalltheway.com - now with playlists
I realise that podcasts.geographyalltheway.com was also in last week’s newsletter - but I have been doing some focused work on the ‘app’ so I thought is was worth an extra share!
I have added two playlists; one on Wicked Problems and the other is titled ‘Road trip’. The Wicked Problems playlist focuses on the ‘big issues’ that the IB DP Geography course touches. The ‘Road Trip’ playlist includes some of the most fun and engaging podcasts, ideal to listen to when travelling.
I intend to add another two playlists before the end of the year. Any suggestions for their focus?

When not in the Geography classroom I spend my time collaborating with and supporting my colleagues with the effective and efficient use of digital technologies. Enjoy this video that we released last week to show (potential) students and parents what we do.

I use a range of apps to organise and store the things I do. Pocket (for initially storing things I want to read), Todoist (for what I need to do and when), and Roam Research (for making, storing and organising notes) have all been mentioned in previous newsletters.
I also use Trello on a near daily basis. I use it to store and sequence big projects. If I find something useful (a YouTube clip or article) it will probably get thrown into Pocket until I have time to sit down and think about it. I might use it in my teaching or resource development. If the resource is deemed worthy of being added to my teaching resources - it gets inserted in to a massive Trello board that has all my DP Geography lessons from geographyalltheway.com on. When I come to reteach a topic, I review geographyalltheway.com in combination with resources and ideas stored in the Trello board.

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!
