I hope this works, haven't been having the best of time with links lately. I completed a survey with s3 on the Physical Environments Unit which incorporated traffic lighting, and one with s4 which evaluated the Human Environments Unit. Interesting feedback. I accept the comments about videos, our vids catalogue really needs a comprehensive overhaul, and this is something that I am slowly trying to address-recently got a DVD recorder, so hopefully some newer DVD's soon. Also, obviously need to have a look at how we deliver limestone-how could this be more interactive? The games, whiteboard, ICT and group activities all seem to have had the desired educational impact with some insightful comments. I will go through the results with classes tomorrow, but as I say hopefull this works. Results1
should be here for the s3 survey, I'll post the s4 results tomorrow, 3 to complete.
Higher never really got as much done today as I would like, so the overlays exercise starts us off tomorrow, and then some past paper and wiki
work/homework. Speaking of overlays, this AIDS
one might come in handy, and there are loads of other relevant files (e.g. global debt) at this
website, again another link to which I am indebted to Noel Jenkins, this time on his Google Earth Juicyblog
. I have also used Tony cassidy's AIDS starter movie
before, and may use this with s4.
Tomorrow, I will also start the weather topic with s1, nice conditions to look at the weather station, which last time I looked, was tilting at quite an angle, so we'll see if it survives the night! I was also amazed and delighted at the quality of work in the s2 Earth Forces movies and powerpoints. I have asked some students to remove personal details, and have kept some for display. I showed some of these to other members of staff today and they were highly impressed. Very well done to all concerned!
