Hello! Welcome to the site that holds the blogs of Soar Valley Geographers! You can access the google maps that students have created by selecting a student from the links menu on the left.

 After exploring their local area think about the following…

In what ways are your local areas different/similar

Are the ways your local areas are changing similar/different?

Are the issues facing your local areas similar/different?

Why do you think these differences exisit?

  1. I had a look at Deepesh’s local map, and thought it provided some interesting details.

  2. Hi,
    I’ve been having a look at woices:
    This is a google map where you can add audio, and might be something your students are interested in. You can organise audio placemarks as a ‘walk’ and at the moment, there are not too many other users on this , so a chance to colonise it a bit?



  3. Stunning work Mr R… (your students of course, not you personally…)

  4. Hi, I’ve found your website by looking around for schools using Google Maps. I am an Open University researcher working with a local school on a Technology Enhanced Learning project. We’re using Google Maps a little. Could I chat to you further about what you’ve done and issues and challenges you’ve encountered.

    Many thanks

  5. Thanks for all your comments people!
