AGTA's GeogSpace resources

The resources on this website are provided by AGTA to support the original GeogSpace website. The GeogSpace project was an initiative of the Australian Geography Teachers Association  (AGTA) supported by the resources of Education Services Australia  (ESA) and funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. After the revision of the Australian Curriculum: Geography most of the links provided in the original GeogSpace website no longer functioned correctly. The resources on this website have addressed this issue.

  • Key understandings
  • Inquiry and skills
  • Exemplars
