The Geography GCSE curriculum has changed over the last number of years so we decided to have a quick look into what had changed and more importantly how Digimap for Schools can cater for these changes. We looked in particular at the AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and CEA examination boards. We noted that the majority of these examination boards now mandate that two field studies are required, one for physical and one for human geography.
As we got into the bare bones of the specifications we noted some common themes occurring in the Controlled Assessment/Fieldwork. Many of them had similar themes for the Data Collection and Data Presentation elements of fieldwork. We created this short video highlighting how Digimap for School can help. Hopefully this will showcase how beneficial the service is to teachers and pupils at GCSE.
