21KEC212 Virtual Orienteering for PE and Geography - Primary

In this webinar participants will participate in an enjoyable virtual orienteering experience and reflect on how google maps can be used in an integrated fashion to develop pupils map skills within both the primary PE and Geography curriculum.  During the webinar attendees will also create their own virtual orienteering trail and explore how their pupils 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.
