Travelling Without Moving online Key Stage 3 Geography Assembly

Embracing the virtual life that we are all living just now can seem daunting, but our Geographers in Key Stage 3 overcame this challenge and found an exciting new way to travel at Monday's Assembly

  • Gilbrator
  • London
  • NYC

The Assembly's theme was 'Travelling Without Moving', somewhat compensating for our temporary inability to explore our fascinating Planet in all its glory. Similarly, students have practised a fundamental emerging fieldwork skill in Geography - virtual fieldwork opening up new avenues of learning like never before. 

 

By using some excellent online software - and a hefty dose of imagination - our youngsters were shown how to do Google Street View tours of areas they know well, and add an oral narration or written script to it, to guide online visitors around their chosen destinations. And wow- what results! 

 

Clearly, this was taken on board fully by some students and they made some excellent short videos of places ranging from Stirling in Scotland showing the history of Scotland at the William Wallace monument to the Statue of Liberty in New York, complete with a visit to the Hans Christian Andersen statue in the centre of the "Big Apple". Likewise, other entries across Key Stage 3 saw entries showing some splendid views of the canals of Venice, Italy and the amenities and popular sites to be found in Tokyo, Japan. We saw the physical and human Geography of Southwest Spain from the luxurious marinas to the mountain vistas of this corner of Europe; we took a trip up the quiet, bucolic mountains of Switzerland, then in contrast, back down to the bustling hubbub of the streets of central London (UK)... and all without leaving our seats... Simply astonishing! 

 

Thank you to all students who participated so enthusiastically and to all staff helping out at the online Assembly. Some students clearly may have future summer jobs as tour guides judging by their proficiency! 

 

So congratulations to all the students work shown here. Enjoy "travelling- without moving!". The next step is to think about how to gather virtual souvenirs? Although perhaps that's best done in person when travel safely resumes for us all globally.

Below are the entries:

  • Lake District, United Kingdom by Hojin K. Year 7.
