Developing PE and Geography Map Skills with Virtual Orienteering Webinar
In this webinar, participants will participate in an enjoyable virtual orienteering experience and reflect on how Google Maps can be used to develop students map skills within both the PE and Geography Curriculum. During the webinar, participants will create their own virtual orienteering trail and explore how their students may also use online tools to explore their locality. Finally, participants will explore apps which can be used to integrate digital technology within traditional orienteering in PE, as a means of enhancing motivation and to support non-contact orienteering in the current times.
Participants are asked to have an Internet enabled device and have printed a three page document, which includes a map and question sheet, in advance of webinar.
The webinar will support development in aspects of both the Primary PE and Geography Curriculum, and will also empower teachers to take an integrated approach between the two areas. Particular areas of relevance highlighted within the curricula include;
- PE Strand Outdoor and Adventure, Strand Unit Orienteering
- Geography skill and concepts - Maps and mapping
This webinar will cater for Primary school teachers and will be particularly relevant to those teachers currently working with students in middle and senior classes. The webinar may also be of relevance to some Post Primary PE or Geography teachers.
