Port Augusta Workshop presentation on geography

Our colleague Stephen

To keep the Spatialworlds blog going with new sites I am beholden to colleagues who send me links or post them on their Twitter, Google Groups, sites and blogs.  One such geography teachers is Stephen Matthews from Geelong Grammar, a dedicated geography teacher who has been involved in the development of the Australian Curriculum over recent years (and now an AGTA Board member).  Stephen regularly sends me sites related to visualisations and all things geotechnological.  I thought this posting could be a guest posting of the great links Stephen sent me last week.  Thanks Stephen and here is your posting of geothechnological sites.  Much appreciated and keep surfing the Internet for the plethora of sites out in cyberspace which can be used teaching in a ‘smart geography classroom’ embracing spatial technology and beyond.  Keep them coming!
