Awaken Your Inner Explorer! Using Google GeoTools in EVERY Classroom-Explore, Connect & Create!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Google offers 3 powerful geotools-Google Earth, Tour Builder & My Maps-that are relevant to every content area, teacher and student! These tools allow for rich, empowering learning experiences that begin with basic exploration and discovery and lead to deep, thoughtful creation and storytelling. Bring your Chromebook & your ideas as we learn how to use these tools and explore the CREATIVE possibilities they bring! We will learn the how-to part together, brainstorm ideas and then you will spend the rest of your time building a lesson that you can use with your students.
The 3 tools we will explore are:
-Tour Builder-Allows for students to tell a story using rich media and language centered around the theme of geography and place. And because this tool is inherently creative, the possibilities for its use by students are deep and wide.
My Maps-It allows for students to create their very own custom maps layered with rich data. This tool is also collaborative so students can work together on the same map. In fact, an entire class could create one map together. Whether they are highlighting local environmental threats or mapping out their journey to a far away land, they can create something that is meaningful and useful beyond themselves.
-New Google Earth for Chromebooks
