A very hot day down on the coast yesterday. We managed to create a few resources which may be of some use to others.
Created using the Photosynth iPhone app. These are great when back in the classroom as the 360 degree images really do help our students remember what they saw.
Hurst Castle Spit:
It’s still confusing to view them on Bing Maps as the two don’t seem to have a simple link between the two, however, both of these are Geotagged.
2. Flickr images
The pupils also created a series of 2 minute revision clips on location. As these contain images of young people, they won’t be shared.
The aim of the trip was to expose the class to a wide range of data collection techniques in preparation for their Controlled Assessment fieldtrip in April. The visit is essential to orientate students to the area (for most of our pupils, these were the biggest waves they’d seen EVER!). Also, as our main Controlled Assessment project is based on Hengistbury Head, it’s important to be able to understand the coastline as a whole.
