Geography Blogs A-Z

| More

Introduction

Blogging is an increasingly popular way of using the web to communicate your thoughts and ideas to other people. Many teachers are using blogs to talk to their students and other educators, and as ever, geographers are leading the way. Although Twitter is growing in popularity, a post is limited to 140 characters, whereas a blog allows for longer pieces of reflection and detail in the sharing of resources.

We've created an A-Z list of geography blogs which we hope will become the definitive directory - get in touch if you'd like to add or amend a listing.

Thanks to Pauline Wright and members of the SLN Forum for creating the original list.

Head over to Alan Parkinson's Living Geography Blog to find out more about using the 'social web' in the classroom.
