Welcome to Geographyeducation.org. I was never planning to do this, but after more than 45,000 hits on my first site, I need to restructure my digital online resources (and I’m so glad to do so because that means you’ve been finding value in this work). As you may know, I’ve been posting what I find to be relevant news stories, videos, articles and other digital resources on Twitter as @APHumanGeog, Google+ and Facebook for about 7 months now and was pleased to get a following that enjoyed the content.
However, readers wanted something archived so I created my scoop.it page www.scoop.it/t/geography-education to fulfill that purpose. After now having about 30 pages worth of content, searching through them can be unwieldy and the the searchable ‘tags’ are not foolproof (I individually create the tags, so it’s definitely not foolproof). Several readers suggested a more permanent way to archive these suggestions in a more thematic manner and who am I to argue with a good suggestion? and that is the genesis of this site.
In terms of aesthetics, it is far from a finished project. In fact, the “Regional” tab is the only operational tab and even that is only piecemeal at the moment. I was half-tempted to delay launching the site until is was more operational, but I wanted user feedback to drive how I structure the site to make it suited to my readers needs. I will continue posting primarily on my various scoop.it pages, but here is where I will thematically and regionally organize that content. I will let you know as more developments arise and hope that your comments become part of the developmental process.
