Google Earth is our Paper
This is a series of posts about the use of Google Earth as a platform for my students to write."
Find a location, Begin a Journey
- very creative way to have students build stories. Note that author uses a classroom set of laptops, but I feel this could be done as a group with one computer and a projector.
Add Your Voice
- If you want a voice recording in each placemarker, use these directions. It is not necessary, however, to use third party software to add naration to a tour. Google Earth version 5 allows you to do this.
Consolidate and Empower
- Excellent run down of possible issues. Saving may be easier now than when this was written.
