Innovative Earth-related teaching ideas
This us an internet-based support network for teacher trainers and teachers of Earth science and geography across the globe who seeks to produce a teaching idea every week, at minimal cost and with minimal resources. Educational resources promote interactive teaching and the development of investigation and thinking skills, while provoking educational debate. A new activity is published every two weeks throughout 2011. Each activity is designed to create pupil participation for maximum learning. Online discussion and a blog encourage members of the global network to submit more activities that can be approved and edited for publishing in the future.
