The Digital Hub Plus is a comprehensive bank of online teaching resources. We have created it to support teaching in secondary schools for Geography, Biology and Environmental Science.

All the topics support fieldwork for the main exam boards including 14-18 Geography and 16-18 Biology. The Digital Hub Plus is made up of a range of content including videos, worksheets and ArcGIS StoryMaps to develop knowledge and skills. It also provides resources to support teachers with continued professional development related to fieldwork in these subjects. 

Free of charge resources

We recognise the increasing pressures on schools so we are offering free access for the academic year 2023/2024, waiving the usual paid subscription, to support teachers and schools in delivering fieldwork content.

As an environmental education charity, our goal is to give every student the opportunity to experience outdoor learning and first-hand fieldwork. 

The Digital Hub Plus contains all of the following. It is easy to use and accessed via the online learning platform, Moodle:
