Curriculum Making from Cambridge: using Local Studies

Sharing a personal `Learning Journey’

Sue Kelly, a teacher from King’s Lynn, shares how she embarked on the process of learning to use the software programme `Local Studies' through this PowerPoint.

Sue attended the second round of the Geographical Association Curriculum Making Conferences in Cambridge. (These CPD events were offered as part of the Action Plan for Geography.) The Primary ICT sessions were developed around the use of Local Studies Software (Soft Teach Education) andteachers who attended the first day of the course needed to go onto develop their own understanding of the programme in order to use it with children they would be teaching.

If anyone else has developed resources using Local Studies software that they would be willing to share - please e-mail me at
