Live on the Move - migrants in the Horn of Africa

An animation by Osbert Parker.

LIFE ON THE MOVE: Theatrical Cut from osbert parker on Vimeo.

Here are some details from the website where it is located.

What is the film about?
LIFE ON THE MOVE – is an animated short that explores compelling personal stories from migrants who move across borders in and around the Horn of Africa. The film disrupts mainstream media coverage of migration as a problem by combining academic research with stop motion animation to bring complex social, economic and personal reasons behind migration to life in a more holistic narrative.

What influenced it?
The film is inspired by a multitude of migrant experiences as a way of visualizing social and economic ‘push and pull’ factors, that fuel the different reasons why people move across borders and migration routes. The film is directly influenced by the (MLT) Migration Leadership Team’s research and true-life testimonies conducted in Hargesia, Somaliland by PositiveNegatives.
A little background information...

The (LIDC-MLT) London International Development Centre Migration Leadership Team is leading a series of global conversations with academics, policy and practice experts, artists and migrants. This is a collaborative production, involving multi award-winning film maker Osbert Parker, LIDC-MLT, non-profit organisation PositiveNegatives, artist and graphic novelist Karrie Fransman with field work facilitated by the International Organisation for Migration. The research film is an animation, that tells multiple complex stories on mixed migration and is intended to be used as a tool that may inspire other researchers to engage in similar arts-based collaborations looking to develop impact from their research.

Keywords Geography App



I was contacted by Joanna Norton, who I spoke to after my session at the Practical Pedagogies Conference in Cologne last year, and who has worked to produce a language app to support young people with the academic language of Geography. 

Keywords Geography is FREE, and available for both iOS and Android devices, and emerged from a 3-year research study carried out by linguists at Trinity College, Dublin. 

Converting this valuable data to a mobile application extends the reach of the findings. 

These would be useful for ESOL students and colleagues as well.

Joanna is keen to develop a community of practice around the use of the App, and contributing to its ongoing developments.

The app has a series of sections, each of which includes audio to explain how to pronounce key words, as well as give examples of their usage in context.

The links to the apps are below for download from the appropriate App store.

Fearghal - "the coolest Geography teacher in the UK"

I've been using some materials from the Water Diaries this last half term, particularly the expedition planning scheme that was written to accompany the RGS Land Rover Bursary funded project.



This Red Bull site shows some of Fearghal's travels which have been run alongside his teaching career apparently earning him the description in the title of the blog post.

Take a look and see what you think.

Guardian Mapping Course.



Booked and heading for this course in February 2020

Here's the description.

Everything happens somewhere. That’s geography.
It’s hard to think of any problem or opportunity that exists, that doesn’t contain an inherent value or have a geospatial value. Geography is social, a form of visual communication, and maps are incredible sources of storytelling.

If you want to unlock the endless possibilities of geography and the mystery of map-making, all you need is your curiosity and creativity (and a laptop, if you like) - and to come to this class. With Paul Naylor and Charley Glynn, visual data design consultants for Ordnance Survey, you will be taken through the theories behind the art of cartography, as well as how maps can be the foundation of any narrative - helping you to convey your message quickly, clearly and with great impact.

Regardless of your level or ability, you will learn how geo data can be used as a key ingredient for a very diverse range of applications, from building maps for your website to learning how to craft compelling infographics. You will also learn the theory and practice behind the art of visualising with geo data, ultimately coming away with a strong understanding of the principles of cartographic design, and the toolkits used to design a web or mobile map.

SAGT Conference 2019 #1 - The reason for going...

The SAGT Conference has been an annual visit for me for most of the last 15 years other than when I have been abroad on other trips.
The Scottish Association of Geography Teachers has a one day conference, and has keynotes and seminars and a publishers' exhibition.
I've previously attended to man the GA stand, including one year with Margaret Roberts, another with Bob Digby, last year with Stephen Scoffham, and always presented something at the conference, and often won awards there too - which is nice...

This year, I was heading up to present a seminar on the South Georgia Heritage Trust, and a new resource I'm writing for them.

This will be made available via the South Georgia Heritage Trust website.

I'm going to post more about the conference in further forthcoming posts over the next few days, but to get things started, here's a version of the slides that Val Vannet and I used.

Thanks to those who came along to see us speaking.
As previously, the conference was hosted by Dollar Academy below the Ochill range of hills, which once again looked beautiful in the autumn sunshine.

South Georgia also featured in the first episode of David Attenborough's new series Seven World, One Planet, which started on Sunday. Check it out on iPlayer.

Film and TV Location Map

ST&G's Great British Film & TV Map: folded or posterI have all the maps which have been made by this company. They work closely with the Ordnance Survey.

Their new map shows the location of Film and TV locations in the UK, along with other details of specific places. There are the locations of cinemas and other film related places as well.

I'm just back from the SAGT conference, of which more to come, and I've previously done a session on the use of the Scottish landscape by Pixar when they made the film 'Brave'. Another series made in the area around Stirling is Outlander, and I noticed quite a few souvenirs related to that area in the visitor centres that I went to.
A good Christmas gift for the geographer in your life.

Atlas of Imagined Islands

New in for the Department, and one to build into a creative unit on islands which I'm planning for Year 7 to get started on for the next year.

I have a range of other exploration related books as well.

Unequal Britain

Dan Olner has produced a useful tool, making use of other code, to put together a little experiment.

The tool is called Two Countries, which gives you a chance to explore the differences in the level of development in different areas of the country, using the 2019 IMD data.

The Lighthouse



Over to Cambridge last night to watch this movie as part of the Cambridge Film Festival. It's a powerful vision of the descent into madness of two lighthouse keepers who find themselves staying beyond their allotted time: "to 4 weeks". The sound design and visuals are fantastic, and black and white is of course the best format for this sort of psychodrama. There are many themes explored with nods to Melville, The Ancient Mariner, mermaids and Prometheus and the theft of fire.

It's also very much about creating and then slowly dismantling a 'place': the rock containing the island, some buildings which need constant maintenance, a large coal pile, some buried whisky and a very persistent seagull.
Catch this when it comes out in the New Year and go for a deep dive which is actually worth it...

Census 2021

In two years time the next Census will, (presumably), happen.

A trial is taking place in 4 areas to check out the online system which will be used where possible to remove the paper forms which had previously been used, and also presumably some slight variations to the questions that are asked since 2011, when the world and the UK were very different places.

Help needed to find images of former GA Presidents

I'm trying to locate images of the following GA Presidents for my GA Presidents blog project, which has a biography of each former GA President (over 100 of them)
I've had help from archivists and other sources to identify most of them, and Andrew Goudie was the latest person to help source several of them. 

I'm down to just a handful of Presidents that I don't have a high quality image of... here they are:

1953: Dr Osbert John Radcliffe Howarth, OBE - I have found an image of a portrait of him, but not an actual photograph of him - will use the portrait if I can't find an image otherwise.

1955: Leonard Sydney Suggate - served on RGS-IBG Council but there is no image in the RGS Archives - He taught at Dorking High School, and at St. Clement Danes Grammar School during the First World War (eventually retiring from there in 1949) - I've had some luck with school archivists before, such as Grainne from Marlborough College, and have contacted the school

1961: Mr. Geoffrey E Hutchings - I have a slightly poor quality image from Balchin's Centenary volume of the GA, but not a decent full face image of him - have contacted the Field Studies Council to see if they can help as he worked at Field Studies Centres

1987: Dr. Graham Humphrys - linked to the University of Swansea and regeneration - I have a small image from Tehmina, a Flickr user who had some images of an event he spoke at in 2010, but will also contact Swansea University to see whether they can help

1988: Mr. Michael J Storm - ILEA School Inspector - he was quite active at the time in terms of writing and other work in Development education, and surprised I couldn't find an image of someone who was President relatively recently

1990: Bryan Ellis Coates

If anyone has any images, or potential leads to where I might find one for these former Presidents, please let me know....

The other thing to say is that I would also be very grateful to receive good images of ANY former GA Presidents, particularly those taken at GA Conferences.

New phone

Time for an upgrade - I tend to time it quite well for new tech, which means I am now the user of a new iPhone 11 Pro, which is very nice, and also in a protective case as shown opposite.

This means I am also running iOS13 which has introduced some new photo editing options and additional tweaks of the OS.

One of the main things people are talking about is the triple camera, and this is indeed an excellent camera. It has three lenses - the wide angle is excellent, new options for controlling videos, and excellent quality images, including a low light option (I have used apps for this sort of thing before)

I've also just upgraded my MacBook Pro to iOS Catalina, so I'm currently right on point, for about the next five minutes...

Check out  myFlickr page for more recent images taken with the new phone.

Georges Perec Geographies

A free PDF download of a book on the geographical influence of Georges Perec.

The value of an atlas...

"The Atlas is the dictionary of the young geographer, and he [sic] must be taught to so regard and use it. It is "guide, philosopher and friend"... a map is no dead thing, but portrays life.... 
Behind the static red line that marks a frontier, there lies the dynamic life that has gone to its making and that still pulsates along it - the hardships, courage and tenacity of a school where character is moulded..."
Clement Cyril Carter, GA President 1939-1941

South Georgia and Attenborough



South Georgia features in the opening shots, and the first episode of the new Attenborough wildlife series 'Seven Worlds, One Planet' - looking forward to this one very much.

SAGT - next weekend

Up to Stirling and Dollar Academy next week to take part in the 2019 Scottish Assocation of Geography Teachers' Conference.
I'm going to be presenting the first elements of a new pack for the South Georgia Heritage Trust, which will be out early in 2020.

Norwich Science Festival - Montserrat Volcano

Sadly I am not going to be able to get to Norwich to see this as I am away.
It's called Disasters Passed?



An exhibit which tells the story of the eruptions and aftermath of the Soufriere Hills Volcano is now on display at the Norwich Science Festival in the United Kingdom.

The interactive exhibit called Mountain Aglow is part of the Disasters Passed? project.

It is a volcano-shaped ‘tent’ where you can explore what it feels like to be caught up in an eruption, the pulse of a volcano’s magmatic heart, and how scientists monitor its changes.

Visitors can listen to recorded songs and stories, and watch the flow of magma that builds up to an explosion. This exhibit is created with and for the people of Montserrat and is at the festival, which runs until October 26.

Presenting at the festival is volcanologist Dr Karen Pascal from the Montserrat Volcano Observatory.

Disasters Passed? is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund and is a collaboration between UEA, the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, the Seismic Research Centre of the University of the West Indies, the British and Montserrat Red Cross and Output Arts. “We are very grateful for all the contributions from the community on Montserrat, whose voices you will hear,” said festival organisers.

Dr Pascal explained that the “Disaster passed?” project is three fold: the ‘Mountain aglow’ exhibit which will be given to Montserrat, the ‘NEST’ exhibit intending to engage UK policy-makers and NGOs about appropriate prevention and response to the various hazards encountered in the Caribbean, and a website which bridges the two exhibits and allows for more materials to be displayed.
“Overall “Mountain aglow” is an interactive display, intended to inform the visitors about volcanic risks and how they are mitigated, but it also has a strong socio-economical content and it shows the transformations the country and the population have experienced during the eruption.

The mobile, collapsible structure is pyramid-shaped, big enough for people to enter and be immersed in the exhibit (10 x 10 feet on floor, 10 feet high). It describes on its 6 panels 6 aspects of the eruption: ‘Before and ‘After’ , ‘Moments of Light and Laughter’, ‘The Volcano’s Guts’ (ie volcano monitoring/risk managements), ‘Ash and Falling Stones’, ‘Moving, Crossing and Leaving’ and ‘Volcano Island’. 

These 6 themes emerged from group interviews carried out in Montserrat as well as with the Montserrat diaspora in the UK. In addition to pictures, the panels include relevant excerpts from individual interviews and from calypsos.”

On the 26th at the ‘Small island, big volcano’ event, author and Professor Yvonne Weekes will give a talk about the creative response to Soufrière Hills volcano eruption.

Mountain Aglow will be shipped to Montserrat in time for the Alliouagana Festival of the Word in November for attendees to experience.

“Not only has the exhibit been built in collaboration with Montserratians, but it will also be possible to add more materials to it, for example more audio-materials or different panels. As it is mobile, it can be displayed outdoors. And because of its holistic approach to the volcanic eruption and its socio-economical but also cultural impacts on the island, it can be used in a wide range of contexts, from showing it in schools, risk awareness days, festivals or even for tourists. Not only it will inform the public, Montserratian or not, but we hope it will generate discussions within the Montserratian population,” added Dr Pascal.

Thought for the Day

Facts, then, our school geographers seem to learn pretty well. They are not so happy when they try to use them - many, I suspect, would prefer to " utilise" them - as evidence in support of statements or as explanations for other facts. It is here, in exposition and in reasoning, that much school geography seems to me to show very serious weakness.

It seems to me that geographers should expressly seek to think clearly and to state their thoughts clearly in simple lucid language without unnecessary abstractions. Lucidity of language cannot be gained without lucidity of thought. A sentenco whose meaning is wrapped up in cotton-wool abstractions like "conditions", "influence,", "development," and the rest may be the unhappy product of a clear-thinking mind groping vainly after olear expression : it is much more likely to be the product of a muddled mind.. But to write a precise, forceful sentence it is quite essential first (to arrange our ideas clearly in our minds : in other words, we must think clearly. Surely as teachers one of our chief duties to our pupito is to teach them to do this? If we insist on lucidity of writing, we are forcing them to think lucidly, and doing our duty by them : if we let them get away with vague, muddled expression and a lot of distractions for padding, we are not. It is lucidity I plead for, not necessarily literary excellence.

Let us then clarify our geographical thinking and tighten up our reasoning. Let us work from observed and recorded facts to generalisations and classifications, and not in the opposite way.
Let us particularly beware of suggesting facile explanations which ignore the infinite complexity of the factors involved. To help clearer thinking let us insist on clearer written work from our pupils. We know that some of them have good brains ; do we always teach them to make the best of them ? 
Let us set ourselves to teach them to think and to write accurately, lucidly and to the point, so that when the time comes they may with the confidence born of long practice set out their ideas and prove their contentions for the examiner who holds so much of their future in the hollow of his hand.

Hilliard Ensemble and Garbarek

Memories today of a stunning concert I attended in Ely Cathedral one foggy November night back in 2014. 
It was one of the final chances to see Jan Garbarek playing with the Hilliard Ensemble. No microphones, just the stunning acoustic of Ely Cathedral and I had a front row seat in the Octagon. I also met the musicians as I left through the South Door.

The final album is released today. It was recorded during this final tour.



Heading to see Jan in a month's time too.

Blogging is 25 years old

Apparently according to the Observer it is 25 years since the first blog by Dave Winer.
I've been blogging since 2002, so that's 17 years of writing and publishing thoughts and ideas. 
I've had (or still have) over a dozen blogs, and my main one is this one of course.
Why not start a blog if you haven't already and start draft posts whenever you have an idea, then finish and post when you get a moment.

Digimap v2

Having an early play with this today. 
A new, improved version 2 of the GA Gold Award winning Digimap for Schools.

Information from Edina.

Digimap for Schools - the definitive global digital atlas for schools




The Digimap for Schools Team are pleased to announce the imminent arrival of a new version of their award winning schools service.

This new version has all the mapping products and functionality Digimap for School users are already familiar with (Ordnance Survey mapping, historical data and aerial photography for GB, drawing tools, image library, webinar and training support), but adds:

Global mapping
- incorporation of the beautiful and authoritative Collins Bartholomew World Panorama product providing a definitive global school atlas




- the same wonderful Ordnance Survey data for Great Britain and beyond GB for the rest of the world, detailed street level mapping from Open Street Map:





An updated and modern intuitive User Interface has been added - this is similar to the one on the DataNation website which is an optional upgrade for schools who don't already have Digimap for Schools perhaps. It also includes a useful additional option to find your location and zoom to it, rather than using the search, or drawing a rectangle as currently.





The new version of Digimap for Schools will be available from November 2019 at http://digimapforschools.edina.ac.uk

Access to the old version will remain available from the same address.
The existing Digimap for Schools version will remain supported until January 2021.
Schools resubscribing to Digimap for Schools before March 2020 will be able to chose between the old version and our new enhanced Global version.
From March 2020 subscribers will only be able to take our new enhanced service.
(Re)subscription will be on a rolling twelve month basis as is the case now. It will not be possible to subscribe to both new and old versions.

As always, the Digimap for Schools Team are happy to respond to any questions or concerns you may have over on the website.

Climate Breakdown

Paul Turner has been hard at work developing some ideas which he has been trialling at Bedales School. 
He has now shared them on Google Drive.

He asked a while back about some ideas for a scheme of work on Climate Change / Breakdown / Crisis.
This has now been turned into a 14 lesson scheme of work which is an excellent framework for some climate change lessons.
