Moodle+ Preview Resources

In Moodle+ you will find a range of resources to support the creation, development and improvement of geography in primary and secondary schools. It is our job to provide learners with the opportunity to become successful geographers and they can only do this with the support of their teachers of geography. Geography is a dynamic, relevant and fascinating subject when taught well and the resources in Moodle+ aim to help you teach enjoyable geography that allows learners to progress their skills, knowledge and understanding.

The resources will be added on a half termly basis and will include strategies to support learners, teaching ideas, strategies to develop leadership and up to date links to geography and geographers on the internet and in the news.
