I’ve just finished our report on the department’s 2009/10 Innovative Geography Teaching Grant project. The project facilitated the Space Explorers workshop as well as some transition work between Years 6 and 7. The project linked into the 21st Century Learning Alliance Fellowship project that had a wider remit about using new technologies.
This type of action research and funding is very useful for geography departments and I would encourage others to apply for the grants. The closing date is the 15th October.
