This is a ‘how to’ post that was inspired by this post over at Noel Jenkins’ excellent Digital Geography. This in turn led me to another useful and creative blog by Paul Bogush and this post on creating RSA Style animation videos with the class. If you want to know how to do it properly, I recommend that you head over to Noel and Paul’s posts first.
This post is the story of how a class of Year 10 Geography students got on with the challenge. Before I start, it’s worth looking at how the experts do it:
During the development unit, I wanted time to really explore the idea of the factors that affect the economic development of countries. In particular, I’ve always struggled to get students to link these factors together. After some of the more traditional lessons, I decided to give this a try. In the end, it took 3 ‘double lessons’, so 6 hours in total.
