Resources (menu)

These pages explore the wealth of different resources available for geography teachers to use. Geography teachers have always made good use of maps, photographs and textbooks in their lessons. 

However, the internet has recently brought an explosion of information, images and data that can be easily accessible to teachers and students in classrooms with the application of new technologies. But this can bring its dangers, and the pages on Media literacy set out what new teachers need to consider carefully before using resources that are so readily available.

As you explore these webpages about geography resources, bear in mind these wise words from Biddulph, M., Lambert, D. and Balderstone, D. (2021) Learning to Teach Geography in the Secondary School: A Companion to School Experience, 4th edition. London: Routledge. Chapter 6:

‘Geography classrooms are usually, and understandably, “resource rich” ….. in our digital age. However, this can be a double-edged sword; resource rich classrooms are not always conducive to effective, worthwhile geographical learning! Resources are not ends in themselves – they need to be selected and used with care and serve the purposes of the curriculum.’
