Useful resources for pre-service and current geography teachers in Australia, particularly NSW. Resources aimed at helping develop a deeper understanding of geographic tools and skills as there is a heavy focus on them in the National Curriculum and NSW BOS. Set up specifically for students studying EDCZ25800 at Avondale College, but available for all geography educators.
Environmental consultants specialising in Environmental Site Assessments and all associated consulting services such as soil contaminant testing and disposal, groundwater testing and remediation, and more.
Tiani Page's insight:
The video on this page provides a good understanding of one way (why and how) geographic tools and skills can be used / applied in the 'real world'
Virtual field studies do not replace the need for physical interaction with our environments, however, they are an excellent tool for allowing students to explore the further world around them. As an educator it is your job to help facilitate these opportunities - so check this out.

Tiani Page's insight:
An interesting list of ideas that could be carefully and cleaverly incorporated into Geography lessons to enhance them for meeting educational objectives, outcomes and ICT usage. Pre-Service teacher, please be reminded that the careful and thoughtful planning of lessons is essential to creating outstanding learning opportunities for your students that also foster a love and appreciation for Geography.
This is a good list of ideas from which you can bounce off to develop your own lessons.
