How the GA is helping continue geography education from home

In the light of the Prime Minster’s announcement on 4 January that England is to re-enter a national lockdown and that the vast majority of students and pupils will be continuing their studies remotely from home, the GA has once again decided to make its teaching resources free to access for all.

In addition to this, we would also like to draw your attention to some of the other fantastic resources which are available on our website for free.

Firstly, why not take a look at our Geography from home section which contains a wealth of geography teaching ideas and activities that can be done from home, as well as quizzes and other useful guidance for parents, teachers and students. Many thanks to the GA volunteers and staff who help put that together so quickly when the coronavirus pandemic first took hold last spring.

Further to this, we would also like to remind you of our new sister site, Geography Education Online (GEO), which is particularly useful for students preparing GCSE and A level geography course. GEO has a growing selection dynamic and interactive web enquires, quizzes and online lectures designed for exam-aged students.

GA Chief Executive Alan Kinder said the following:

The global COVID-19 pandemic is creating the most challenging time for education in living memory. As a community of teachers of geography, we are all aware of and deeply affected by its impacts on children, young people and teachers. Now, more ever, is the moment for us to reach out and help one another, and the GA is determined to play its role. Please do let us know if there is any more we can do to support your work in providing high-quality geography education to young people.”
