Google Earth February 18, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — leahdewhurst @ 10:05 pm

I have been working on Google Earth for my project.  It has been a fun and frustrating adventure.  I can definitely see the value of Google Earth in the classroom.  As I have playing around with the different tools I have been discovering the wealth of information that it actually provides.  I have discovered within Google Earth is the moon view, which has videos, links, pictures.. .you name it, it has it!!!  What a great resource.  Have to remember this for next year!

I am still working through Google Earth and making a tour for my Inuit unit.  I marked all my places on the map and then discovered the layer option which you can add photos and links.  So needless to say, I am still exploring.  I am hoping to create a movie of the tour if I can actually get to that point.   If anyone has done a tour or knows how to add neat things to the tour please let me know.

    I have been experimenting with Google My Maps – I can identify with the work involved and frustrations. I wanted to add Voicethread links to make the tour more interactive and have a place for students to add thoughts. I could only get the link to work but wanted to embed the VoiceThread which seemed to work then didn’t (if that makes sense).

    This would be an awesome way for kids to grasp the content. I think this sounds like a fantastic project!
