Operational notes
The first week of students being back in school has been hectic but the dust is settling.
I spent the weekend leading a Category 1 DP Geography workshop, online, with participants from Brazil, Europe and China. As I was leading a workshop you can get free access to geographyalltheway.com, until Sunday, using the username and password: workshop.

I am currently covering 2.1 Causes of global climate change with my DP2 class. I found this site, focused upon on feedback loops, particularly useful when addressing →
Changes in the global energy balance, and the role of feedback loops…

Updates
Those who signed up, as either mentors or mentees, to the 2022 cohort of the DP Geography educator mentoring project. Emails went out at the weekend to start the mentor-mentee partnerships.
The 2023 meeting of the Swiss IB Geography Teachers Network will be on Friday 12th May 2023 at the International School of Lausanne. The best way to stay abreast of developments is by joining the Swiss IB Geography Network group on LinkedIn. For teachers in Switzerland and neighbouring countries only - sorry.
Random
Rather random this week… Have a play, see if the larger population agrees with you and share it with a Theory of Knowledge teacher - they like this sort of thing.
Absurd Trolley Problems

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!
