ITSC 2009: Google Earth Classroom Projects

Imagine that you are a student and have been asked to make a presentation. You want to incorporate geography, pictures, text, and maybe even some audio into a presentation that you will be giving to the class. In this workshop, you will learn how to use Google Earth to create a virtual tour that incorporates location, text, images, and even your own podcast! Join us and learn how you can use Google Earth to help your students make global connections to their learning.

The following is a great site when looking for historic images. (Think, for instance, access to Civil War pictures.)

Instead of using <a href="audio file">Click here to listen</a>, use an <embed src="audio file"></embed>
. This will put the file directly in the pop-up window instead of making it an outside link. :)

Hi Lynn - Thanks for the workshops last week. I came back extremely inspired. My students and I have started a blog version of our school newspaper. In addition, we created some 'tours of favorite places' on Google Earth. You may have covered this but I need some assistance in creating a link on our blog to the 'tours' on Google Earth.

Google Earth seems to have a very easy to read tutorial, but I sort of need a nudge in the right direction. I don't know what language to use to ask for help in the help section.

I hope my request makes sense.

Thank you!!!!!

Great question, Debra. You know how on the last page of the handout it showed you how to save the project? Well, once you have that KMZ file, you can post it as an attachment on your web page. From there, once people click on it, it will open right up in GE! I can't wait to see what your students did!!!
