As global citizens, it’s very crucial for educators nowadays to prepare our students to be future explorers of the world in which they learn interdependence, connection, interaction, and empathy using sets of dynamic and immersive learning tools : Google Geo Tools.
What’s On the Books?
“Bring the World to Your Classroom” will provide basic tutorials, guides, and examples for all (Not only Geography) educators to develop meaningful learning experiences using Geo Tools.
One thing I found very useful is that how this book discuss these tools from teachers’ perspective where you will not only learn features and techniques of using the tools but also how you can use these Geo Tools to develop important skills such as map exploration, storytelling, interactive tour presentation, and immersive field trip design with Geo tools.
Through each chapter, the authors engage the readers to dive to each Google Geo tools from Google My Maps, Maps, Streetview, Expeditions, Tour Builder, Earth, Hangout and tools for research that are outlined through these sections:
- Relevant & engaging case study
- Quick tutorial of important features
- Out of the Box Project samples
- Practical future implementation ideas
Down to Earth
I love how the books help educators become ‘Down to Earth‘ educators (no matter what subject you teach) who make meaningful connections to the world through geo literacy, visual data interpretation, and immersive story telling.
Overall, if you want to be earthmazing educators who want to bring the spirit of exploration in learning, get this book now! Check out here !
