Geography SSLP Event for Teachers held at Alleyn's (St Michael's Catholic College, Bermondsey, London)
Partner: Southwark Schools' Learning Partnership
Partner type: Community Group
This year’s first Geography SSLP event for teachers was held at Alleyn’s on 3rd November 2016 with attendance from St Michael’s Catholic College and St Saviour’s & St Olave’s schools. The teachers took part in ArcGIS CPD presented by one of the Alleyn’s Geography teachers, and Head of Lower School, Stuart Turner.
Aims of the project
The teachers worked through a couple of data types, mapping travel distance from school and crime statistics. There was a lot of discussion over how to incorporate this into lessons and about general approaches to teaching.
