From Natalie C., Reference & Digital Resources Librarian

The California Geo Teacher Institute is taking place in San Francisco this week. Many TDSB teachers have been sharing what they’re learning at the Institute on Twitter, including some exciting tools that can help students explore far-off places without leaving the classroom.

Some that I’m looking forward to exploring further:

  • Google Earth EducationFind lessons & activities to help use Google Earth in the classroom
  • AugmentEdu: A new project that leverages Pokemon Go technology to allow students to create augmented reality tours
  • Google Spotlight Stories: Augmented Reality stories that allow students to drive across the country, experience a sunny day in London, take an adventure with The Simpsons and more
  • Visit Vimy: A 360 degree tour of Vimy Ridge with Peter Mansbridge
  • Walk With Us: A storytelling project where students will capture street-view imagery of northern Ontario Indigenous communities
  • Google Earth Engine Timelapse: See how the Earth has changed over the past 32 years

Check out some of the conference tweets below from star TDSB teachers:
