The use of GIS has recently been developed by the SGN because it is now a requirement of the new KS3 Geography curriculum. A recent SGN-western meeting looked at GIS solutions available, see presentation here . Free GIS solutions on the web have also been investigated and this handout produced for various courses and training in Suffolk. David Rayner has also presented a course outlining free GIS in the northern area. His handouts can be found in the list of resources above.
Alan Parkinison also ran a session on GIS and other new technologies at the Suffolk Secondary Geography Conference in November 2008. The presentation is shown below and further information is available on Alan's website - www.geographypages.co.uk/suffolk.htm
