Workshop of the Month: Google Geo Workshop for Educators
Recently Google released several new geo tools designed to help connect people to places and beyond. 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 one-day workshop will introduce and describe how to use Maps, My Maps, Street View, Tour Builder, Cultural Institute, Photospheres, and Cardboard to create these interactive and engaging learning opportunities. Participants will be actively involved in creating maps, tours, and other projects as they learn about the powerful features of each tool. By the end of this workshop, you will have a solid understanding of how these tools can be used in your classroom.
In-depth understanding of Google’s Geo tools & classroom uses.
Hands-On exploration and creation with Google Geo tools & resources.
Cross-curricular connections & uses for Google Geo.
Our team hosts monthly webinars on YouTube Live. Check out this playlist for presentations on 3D printing, G Suite & Math, YouTube and GEO tools. July’s topic? tbd
Other Featured Google Edu Workshops
Gsmart: Designing Interactive Lessons with Google Tools
This workshop will discuss real ways to creatively utilize Google tools to produce quality lessons in the K-12 classroom. We will examine the powerful features with Google Docs (and G Suite tools) to create a self-contained, interactive experience for students to transform the way in which they learn and demonstrate mastery in the classroom.
Google Drive Meets SAMR
Google Drive can help you and your students communicate, collaborate, create, and connect. Using the SAMR model (a way for teachers to evaluate how they are incorporating technology into their instructional practice), we’ll create projects that redefine how technology can be used in your classroom.
