Welcome to the new Geopacks.com digital resource bank for teachers. The aim of this bank is to provide you with a constantly updated set of resources for use in the classroom. They are all written in flash so can be viewed via any web browser or simply included in to a PowerPoint or Whiteboard presentation.
All our resources at Geopacks.com have been written and designed by our software developer Rick Cope. Rick is the ex-Head of Backwell School near Bristol. Prior to this he was Director of Castle Head Field Centre in the Lake District for 10 years, providing residential environmental adventure and fieldwork opportunities for all ages. Rick is author of the Geopacks range of educational software for geography and is co-author of Easibooks Secondary Geography content for Interactive Whiteboards. He worked with the Ordnance Survey on their innovative ‘Our Favourite Places’ project and advised on the content for the ‘Mapzone’ and ‘GISzone’ websites. Rick runs courses for trainee and practising teachers on using ICT in fieldwork and how to use Interactive Whiteboards to enhance Geography teaching. He is currently working as a consultant with BBC Education on their Digital Video Clips library. Rick is an active member of the Geographical Association, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a Chartered Geographer. In 2004 he received the RGS Ordnance Survey Award for Contributions to Excellence in Secondary Geography Teaching.
