GA Conference 2013 - 2 of lots - Follow the Things

One of the things I'm doing at the GA Conference is meeting with Ian Cook, creator of Follow the Things.

Follow the Things is a project which encourages students and teachers to explore issues relating to trade justice, and to follow the stories of the commodities that they own (or covet)

I'll be working on a project to create some, hopefully innovative, teaching resources, which will be shared online through various channels later in 2013. I'll also be going along to the workshop that Ian is running on the Friday morning of the conference (it clashes with Bob Digby's Presidential lecture.

These will extend beyond the ideas for using the website in the classroom that have already been shared.
Don't forget that there's a chance to earn your Mission:Explore badge too...



The conference hashtag is #gaconf13
