Inquiry & Exploration with Google Maps & Cultural Institute
Date & Time
Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Recently Google released several new geo tools designed to help students explore beyond the four walls of their classroom. These new tools have the potential to change how teachers teach and students learn about their communities and the world as a whole. Most people have heard of Google Maps and Earth, but there is a rich suite of other Google Geo applications that provide a toolset for geospatial learning. This workshop will introduce and describe how students can use My Maps and Google’s Cultural Institute to create interactive and engaging learning opportunities. Participants will be actively involved in creating maps and building and sharing collections of cultural artifacts as they learn about the powerful features of each tool. By the end of this workshop, you will have a solid understanding of how your students can use these tools for their own projects and classwork.
