GA Conference - GIS in the Geography Curriculum

GIS was a significant part of the recent GA Conference with a range of sessions covering various options for fieldwork and classwork.

There was (by all accounts) an excellent double workshop led by Bob Lang and Jason Sawle.
Notes and resources from the session are now available to download from the GA's Conference page. This is where notes and presentations from many of the sessions are being made available. Check out WORKSHOP 47 on this page (and mine was Workshop 33 if you're interested)

GIS is an important part of all preparation for the new Curriculum 2014, and will also form part of new GCSE and 'A' level courses.
If you'd like to find out more about ArcGIS Online, ESRI UK are putting on a series of courses at their Aylesbury HQ in July. Details can be found HERE.

There are also some further support materials for DIGIMAP FOR SCHOOLS in preparation and Darren from the OS has been busy travelling around the country leading courses in schools and other venues over the last year.

Finally, I'm going to be working on some London mapping resources for those exploring GIS, but more to come on those in the next few months...
