A new learning environment for students to explore mapping and geographical topics and support all core atlas products. Collins School Atlas flipcharts combine the best aspects of traditional teaching and e learning. Flipcharts run on Interactive whiteboards using Promethean ActivStudio software. The charts are easy to use, visually stimulating and use bright attractive graphics to engage students. Type sizes and symbols have been designed for maximum clarity. They allow teachers and learners to further develop each topic using the inbuilt tools of interactive whiteboards. The graphics can be annotated, highlighted or spotlighted as required by the teacher to promote further learning. A full range of tools are available within the software so that the teacher has the option to experiment or create further learning material at a level appropriate to the class. Collins School Atlas Oceania flipchart has been created to support various aspects of the National Curriculum guidelines for Geography in secondary schools. It includes both the physical and human geography of Oceania. Topics such as mountains, rivers, lakes, population, capital cities and flags are introduced in step-by-step presentations and simple activities support the teaching and learning of geography. Quizzes incorporated into the charts, making use of Promethean voting pads, encourage students to enjoy learning and allow teachers to assess the progress of the whole class, individuals or groups within the class.
