Wednesday Web of the Week: Google Lit Trips

Web address:

Google Earth has influenced how we teach a lot of things.  It allows us to explore far away islands, distant mountains, and view undersea features.  It also allows you to explore books in a whole new way.  Any book that takes place on our world can be mapped as a Google Earth Tour.  Many have already been done.  Check out Googlel Lit Trips to see grade level examples of books that navigate through our world.

This week in the Faculty Lounge, UEN's Professional Development will be showing how to use Google Earth to create your own Literature Trip.

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
