A weblog designed to share Geography resources with students and colleagues

Sunday, October 19, 2008


Categories: s1 and s2, Geography General

I was having a flick through some of the links on Noel Jenkins excellent Teacher's Toolkit and thought that Visuwords would be a great starting point for a topic. S2 are beginning the Japan unit soon and one of the first things that you do is research for a leaflet. I put 'Japan' into Visuwords (click the image above for the results) and got a mass of useful things which could be used by students, along with an explanation when you scroll over them. This will definitely be getting an outing in classes this week.

Hi Kenny - it's good isn't it. Thanks for the idea - I'll mention it in the INSET I'm doing tomorrow on the web toolkit

Thanks for the link and the comment,Noel. Showed this to a couple of Biology colleagues today too. When we typed in genetics, words were exploding all over the screen! Good attention grabber.Good luck with the INSET.
