New from the Geographical Association: GEO – Geography Education Online
Launching in autumn 2020, GEO is an innovative new standalone website created by the GA specifically for GCSE and A level geography students. GEO’s purpose is to provide engaging and high-quality geography support for students, many of whom face ongoing disruption to their learning as a result of COVID-19.
Through the GEO website, students will be able to access live online sessions with fieldwork tutors, live academic lectures and interactive subject content, free of charge. The perfect way to support your students through their GCSE and A level study.
A sample of the content is available now. Download this ppt, which incorporates a planning toolkit and designed to help students as they work through the different stages of the independent investigation.
We are pleased to be holding a launch event on 15 July at 4pm to introduce the new GEO website. The event will give you a chance to find out more about some of GEO’s key features and ask questions about the project. The event will be streamed live and is open to everyone.
