Using Digital Photography in the Classroom

John Halocha and Bryan Ledgard led this workshop at the GA Annual Conference 2007. It covered the essentials of how to take effective geographical photographs and suggested a range of websites offering high quality, free digital images suitable for geographical learning. The workshop demonstrated techniques using photographs to encourage geographical enquiry and creative thinking in and beyond the classroom.
