Getting Geographical

The latest podcast from The Virtual Staffroom is a must for all geographers. In Episode 6: A Bird's Eye View Chris Betcher interviews Luc Zwartjes from Belgium. Luc teaches geography and also technology for teachers. He uses geographical information systems (GIS) with his students and explains some of the fascinating possibilities. Interesting insights about the difference between the way kids and adults relate to technology, and hence learn.

Chris has added some relevant links as well, including a very interesting opportunity for schools to obtain two free licences to Google Earth Pro.
