In the years since independent studies last appeared on the Geography curriculum the technological world has shifted, now most students have a device in their pockets which is more powerful than any clipboard and salty, crusty, rain-drenched booklet could ever be.

This course introduces students to a selection of apps they can use on their own phones as well as a range of specialist electronic equipment to collect a range of different qualitative and quantitative data.

Students can also choose to use technology to complete an extensive flood-risk mapping of Southwold and it’s harbour.

In the classroom, we will make it clear how this data can be applied – which will include considering types of presentation and use of GIS packages, and therefore inspire students to consider how their own NEA may take shape.

This course counts as 1 of the 4 required days of fieldwork expected at A-level.
