    From the Earth: Explore, Collaborate, and Share with Google Earth From the Earth: Explore, Collaborate, and Share with Google Earth Presentation Transcript

    • 18 November 2008 From the Earth Geo Apps: Maps, Earth, and SketchUp Thomas Cooper Technology Integration Coordinator The Walker School Marietta, Georgia
    • How to absorb the next 30 minutes: Know there are links to all of this information online. Contribute to our discussions. Write down your brainstorms of HOW you will take this information to your classrooms/Teachers. Feel free to follow along when we jump online to these apps! Google Confidential and Proprietary
    • Tools that Talk to Each Other: Google Confidential and Proprietary
    • What are Geo Apps? Geographical Information Systems store data and associate the data with points and polygons on a map. Various tools allow you to manipulate these data points and understand the relationship between them. Google Confidential and Proprietary
    • Inspire Students to be Aware of their Surroundings: Google Apps can be used to inspire students to do discover and be aware of their surrounding. Pre-K and K students memorize their home address and are then shown where it is in Google Earth. More lesson ideas for integrating GE Apps into PreK and K at: http://thewalkerschool.wikispaces.com Google Confidential and Proprietary
    • Inspire Students to Explore: Geo Apps allow you to add points, polygons and 3D shapes and then save the file. You can also add placemarks which can contain text, pictures, and links. In this activity 3rd grade students researched American explorers and collectively built a map of their research. Google Confidential and Proprietary
    • Use a GPS and Geo Tools to Analyze Information: Measuring tools in Google Earth can be used to understand the spatial relationship between different points and polygons on a map. 6th grade students took Garmin GPS units to the Atlanta zoo and used them to find the Network location of various animals. Besides collecting data on some of the animals for science class, the also uploaded the data points and were tasked with calculating the shortest route to see all of the animals with minimal overlapping in their route. The also 80% calculated the total distance walked during the exercise. Source: Comscore Media Metrix, Sept 2004 Google Confidential and Proprietary
    • Inspire Students to Collaborate: Students at all grade levels can collect data about their environment and upload it to a layer in GE Apps. In the project enviornmental minded students from different grade levels are cooperating to collect data on their drinking water. The project encourages students to take responsibility for keeping Clean Watershed Project at: http://cleanwatersheds.wikispaces.com their local water supply clean.

    • Understand the Historical Significance of Exploration: In this project, students created a series of placemarks that traced a famous expedition.

    • Inspire Students to become Globably Aware: Students can use Geo Apps to create layers about a social issue to raise awareness and plan fund raising activities. In this project, students study how children are marginalized around the world through poverty, malnutrition, mental disorders, disease and Our Lost Children at: http://ourlostchildren. other topics. wikispaces.com Source: Google 2004 Industrial Markets Survey, conducted by Insight Express (May 2004); Google Confidential and Proprietary Sample size = 300 respondents
    • :Geo Apps Inspire Students to: Discover (conduct research and identify problems) Engage in Discourse (participate in civil discussions on current events) Become Aware and Analyze Their Surrounding (use spatial tools and math skills to problem solving) Negotiate (to understand and appreciate others’ points of view) Be Aware (look at global issues that affect us all) Engage Themselves (to become part of civil and social engagement efforts to solve problems in our community and abroad) Google Confidential and Proprietary
