Revision Materials for IB Diploma Programme Geography
Richard Allaway & Alan Parkinson
This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iPad, and with iTunes on your computer. Multi-touch books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iPad. Books with interactive features may work best on an iPad. iBooks on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.
The aim of this eBook is to help facilitate revision and synthesis of the Extreme Environments optional theme of the IB Diploma Programme Geography course.
What's New in Version 1.1
Some of the photos have been improved, typos have been corrected and the number of terms in the glossary has been increased.
This book is a wonderful example of the next generation of resources for teachers and students. It offers fantastic visuals to stimulate the reader with plenty of interaction to get students thinking and writing notes or flash cards to revise from at a later date.
A resource my students and I are going to really enjoy using and more importantly really learn from and have evidence to prove it!
Roll on more books!
Brilliant job Richard and Alan take a bow!
Whilst the navigation takes a bit of getting used to, perhaps it is because I am more of an iBooks novice, this is a great resource. Certainly for revision this is very helpful. The images are well selected and the video and audio sections are good too.
This is certainly not a sole text book. You need to search elsewhere for more thorough explanations of physical processes and, for the most, to get the full detail in the case studies that you would need for Level 7 (top grade in IB). However, I don't think this iBook is trying to replace other resources but to complement. It does this very well.
A beacon for future iBook authors
A fantastic resource that I will be using this coming year. This is where the future of textbooks lie - clear and concise as well as inclusion of relevant interactive activities to test learning. I salute you Mr. A!
