The 7-11 Weblink Guides recommended by Geographers for Geographers

Why 7-11? Not ages 7-11! NOT years 7 to 11! There will be no more than 11 in any web link list and no less than 7.  We have decided that you need quality not quantity. Only in exceptional circumstances will we step out of this.

Please recommend websites to others - don't just wait for others to recommend to you! 

It is virtually impossible to keep this page up to date so many apologies if you come across "dead links" - a search using a reputable search engine will generally find what you are looking for.

Some of the best websites for geography teachers are those created and maintained by those who know what they need most in the classroom - other geography teachers!

These are some of the best!

Discovering Antarctica is a new online interactive teaching tool from the Royal Geographical Society (RGS-IBG). The website is aimed at geography teachers and students and features a wide range of themes to utilize and investigate both in classroom learning. It has been developed by the Royal Geographical Society with IBG, British Antarctic Survey and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Polar Regions Unit. Look out for the poster, to accompany the website, which should arrive in your school shortly.  www.discoveringantarctica.org.uk  
Live Local is a new website from Microsoft, with aerial photos and maps and in some ways provides higher quality images than Google Earth and also has the benefit of not needing to be downloaded onto the computer first (which has been causing problems on some school networks) http://local.live.com/
South AfricaContrasts in South Africa from Swanshurst School in Birmingham was created as a result of two teachers who visited Capetown on a teacher exchange and a resulting link with Ntafufu Senior Secondary school. The website features lots of video footage from Capetown and pupils can easily compare and contrast lifestyles. www.swanshurst.org/southafrica
