Google Earth Tips – Sharing good practice
I hope that some of you have enjoyed reading the 33 Interesting Ways (and tips) to use your Interactive Whiteboard. The Google presentation continues to grow as people contribute, the last three tips are titled:
- #31 – Snap it! (using the SMART capture tool)
- #32 – Check by order (self checking method using the layering of SMART Nbk objects)
- #33 – Befuddle It (using Befuddle to create a picture puzzle from your Nbk pages)
Well there is a new kid on the block looking for help!
I have begun a new Google presentation (currently) titled: “Four Eighteen interesting ways (and tips) to use Google Earth in the classroom.” It follows the same model as the IWB presentation, in that it is an open resource that needs your contributions in order to grow. Please feel free to share with your colleagues if you find it useful, spread the word or even embed in your blog.
Contribute one idea or contribute ten! I have made a start – the process is easy.
- Go to the presentation and take a look at was has been contributed. If you would like to be added as a collaborator send me an email (thomasgeorgebarrett [at] googlemail [dot] com – or use the contact tab at the top of this page – or even send me a direct message via Twitter I am tombarrett) I will invite you in as a collaborator.
- Add your one slide, one idea and one image.
- Change the presentation title slide and file name to match the number of ideas.
It will have a humble beginning as before, but I know with your help it will soon grow into something that offers a uniquely authored resource, sharing good Google Earth practice from around the world.
