Creating Virtual Tours Using Google Earth
In this session we will explore how to use three tools found in Google Earth--Street View, Google 3d buildings, and Google Art Project--to construct virtual tours for your classroom. We will examine two different sorts of virtual tours, one to be used in class to immerse students more fully in the destination environment, and one to be used by students and parents while on trips such as a Week Without Walls. The presentation will briefly demo sample virtual tours, discuss how such tours fit into your lesson plans and learning objectives, as well as how to actually construct the tours. The presentation will be supported by a YouTube website that teachers can access and refer to when they return to their home schools and want to employ the techniques presented here. It should be a great opportunity for us to share what we each know about these powerful learning tools.
