Norfolk Geography Conference

Norfolk Geography Conference
Monday 30th June

Stonehenge! 'Tis a magic place
Where the moon doth rise with a dragon's face
Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie
And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky

This is a trail for the Norfolk Conference, at the PDC in Norwich, which has a keynote session by Sarah Watts.

I am offering a 55 minute session (ish) - you know I always over-run....

I have decided to mention a few new ideas for using Google Earth and also showcase a lesson designed by Noel Jenkins from Digital Geography.

This will go through the process of curriculum development that I hope will inspire the folks who come to my session to see how they can take an idea for a lesson and "run with it" and use a few of the new website tools to make it a little more creative and engaging...

Will also mention the guide made available at Digital Explorer by Jamie Buchanan Dunlop.

Will also be mentioning my new favourite website: WORDLE.

Also coming up is the new THEMATIC MAPPER tool, which was also picked up by Mark Batchelor on SLN...

Here's one that was made earlier with the TOOL (or ENGINE)
It shows mobile phone subscriptions...

Also the GOOGLE CODE API, which I had a play with a while ago, and was mentioned by Tom Biebrach. Here's the details on that as an embedded video:
