Teachers often ask us how they can meet fieldwork objectives when they are teaching units on mountains, so team Oddizzi and James Ketchell, a British adventurer travelled to Nepal in August 2022 to film a virtual fieldwork experience for primary children.
The film itself is 54 minutes long and takes children on a journey from Lukla to Everest Base Camp. A Geo-Jotter has been designed for each child to have in front of them as they watch the film to record data and complete special learning challenge set by the Oddizzi team live from Nepal.
The resources have been reviewed by KS2 teachers:
“I don’t know of any other resources like this which exist. The virtual reality feel of being on the trip with you is definitely unique and also the variety of activities which are included.”
“The film was fantastic! It will make what can be a very dry subject where children fail to relate to what is like living in a mountainous region, into something real and captivating.”
“The familiar presenters and the repetition of content make it very child friendly, you take us all on a journey and make us feel like we are with you. It makes it less like a documentary and more like an adventure.”
“The Geo-Jotter is accessible for a range of abilities and helps focus pupils on the geography and their geographical understanding.”
