Win free bespoke missions to promote you / your business / your group on the Mission Explore website and App.

As regular reader will know, I’m involved with The Geography Collective.  Another of the collective, Daniel, has written this guest post:

We are offering 10 organisations the opportunity to create bespoke activities for free on Mission:Explore. All you have to do is have a good idea.

Mission:Explore includes over 1,000 missions. There are location specific missions like ‘Share tee with the Queen‘ and anywhere missions like ‘Flash dance!‘ which is sponsored by National Geographic Education as part ofGeography Awareness Week.

Missions can be located anywhere in the world and appear as sponsored by our parnters. Each mission usually costs £99 a year (much less on an ‘unlimited’ plan) and includes a bespoke activity, your logo, a link, some words about who you are and a waterproof sticker. Above is an example from Ed Stafford and here is one from The Workshop in central London.

To win a bespoke mission all you need to do is:


Converse with a cow1. Come up with a good mission idea

This should include:

- a link to where the mission would take place

- an activity title of no more than 30 characters

- an activity description of no more than 200 characters

2. Email your idea to hello@missionexplore.co.uk before the end of November 2010. We will then pick out the 10 best mission ideas to include on www.missionexplore.co.uk and the iPhone app for 1 year.

That’s it. Anyone can enter. You can even promote yourself if you like. We will be looking for mission ideas that fit in with how we do things, other than that you can suggest what you like and enter as many times as you like. Our decision is final and we reserve the right to do anything we want. Other than that, good luck!

#GAConf22: A paradigm shift for anti-racist, decolonised teaching and inclusion

 " You can't start a fire,  You can't start a fire without a spark" Bruce Springsteen.  Well, it's been a fair while since I felt the motivation or the need to blog. Whilst not a story for now, over the past five years I've danced along the knife edge and, often, the call of the abyss has been both tempting and compelling. Certainly, my failing in both my personal and professional life have been numerous. But. This is not about me, but the people that have (re)ignited the spark to the fire in my soul. I realise that this is from the perspective of a privileged, white, middle class male view. I even have a beard. I am scared of getting it wrong on this topic. Teach me if I am wrong, it is from the position of a learner. I was looking forward to the GA Conference this year, the first face to face since 2019. I have to say that Alan , as president, and the Geographical Association's team did a fantastic job at being inclusive. The hybrid format allowed peopl

What makes a learning experience profound? Personal reflections and possible implications for classroom practice.

I have recently begun a Leadership Pathways journey.  As part of the first core day, we were asked to reflect on a profound learning experience. This got me thinking about how many profound learning experiences I have both been involved in, and how many I have been able to give to others.  Our group came up with a huge long list, but these are my five. Emotional Connected Demanding Reflective Collaborative As always, these are personal thoughts and quite mixed up.  I put them here so that I can look back on them (plus they’d get lost inside my world-cup-free brain) 1. Emotional I can’t think of a time where deep learning hasn’t engaged my emotions.  From being awe inspired to that tingle feeling when a student gets a light bulb moment.  From this-is-the-happiest-day-ever, to I-think-I’m-about-to die.  How often do we engage the emotions of those we teach?  Here, I would argue that having a safe learning environment is not always conducive to profound

The interview adventure: Lesson idea

Closing time Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end. This is the first in a short series of posts around my successful appointment as an Assistant Headteacher at Patcham High School .  The job starts in September.  This post shares a lesson idea that would be worth a polish and revisit for any context.  I’m sharing these things here mainly for me to reflect upon and revisit at a later date, but also as others may benefit from the experience. The brief was to create a 25 minute lesson around the word ‘INSPIRE’ which forms the school’s mission statement.  The interpretation was open and I wanted to avoid being explicitly geography  linked.  Now, it’s impossible to develop a fully formed lesson in that time with a class that I haven’t met. It’s also not possible to teach an Outstanding lesson to such a group of young people, not least because I hadn’t marked their books.  With this in mind, I wanted to take a risk and show the type of creative stuff I lik
