Geography Cup in the News
Dan Raven Ellison and the Geography Cup are in the News...
The competition, which runs until New Year's Eve has been featured in a YAHOO news article.
Nice one!

BETT Article published
My latest piece of journalism: an article for the Educ@Guardian's BETT Supplement was published this Tuesday.
Have been waiting for an online version to link you to, and they are now online.
HERE is the general page for the supplement.
And HERE is my humble contribution, which begins below:

Bring maps to life and save the world

Treasure hunts, electronic mapping, sustainable development, and exploring Britain through panoramas

Geography is a subject looking to the future, giving students skills to interpret the world of tomorrow. Geographical information - its collection, analysis and presentation - is another strong theme as schools are encouraged to use the best technology.

Famous for 15 seconds again...

More good news is that my new DELL Computer arrives at the weekend - I'll finally have a reasonably up to date machine again for the first time in about 6 years...

Also exploring the use of some new tools from NeoWORX - more later...

Nice article, Alan are you going to change the comments so that I don't have to use the google account?
