Geographical Association Network

The word on everyone's lips this year has been NING - not many people are sure what it actually means, but that hasn't stopped hundreds of teachers getting involved!

Ning is short for networking and we've created the Geographical Association Ning as a website where you can meet and chat with other members about anything related to geography and/or teaching. It's great for putting faces to names and for having an online chinwag with people you've communicated with via email or met at events. The Ning forms part of the GA/APG mission to form support networks across the UK and is proving a huge success.

The site also contains a selection of 'Groups' which are discrete sections for individual interest groups such as GA Working Groups, the Primary and Secondary Quality Marks, and GIS in the Classroom. Ning members are encouraged to join special interest groups, or can even create their own!

Primary Geography Champions Network

In addition to the Geographical Association Ning, we've also set up a Primary Geography Champions Ning for people engaged in the Primary Champions scheme and primary practitioners looking for online and local support.

Since 2008, 54 Champions have been appointed across the nine regions of England to help pool local expertise and promote quality geography in primary schools. The Champions have been challenged to engage with at least 1500 primary teachers and to ensure that geography retains its place amongst those curriculum areas that are characterised by excellence and enjoyment.

Find out more about the scheme on the Primary Geography Champions page.

Young People's Geographies Ning

To help you get involved with our innovative Young People's Geographies project and interact with participating teachers, academics and students, we've created the YPG Ning. Although this site is specifically related to the YPG project it features all the same functions as our other Nings - you can add blogs, share photos, talk to other members via the forums and chat facility, and find out about cpd courses, meetings and resources.

Other Nings

A number of other Nings have been set up by enthusiastic members which complement the official GA Networks, including Nings for particular regions and exam specifications. Listings and links can be found at the foot of the homepage on the Geographical Association Ning.
