Our Summer Vacation

This summer I was privileged enough to attend the Google Geo Teacher’s Institute at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA. It was two days of pure Google-iciousness that focused on the geo tools, Google Maps and Earth. In class today, I had students complete a short Google Form about their travels this summer. That information was then imported into a Google Map, and here is the result:

If you click on each of the map pins, you’ll be able to travel the world with seventh graders…without actually traveling with 36 seventh graders.

  1. This is really cool! Can you directly import from the form into maps easily? If so, please teach me! Love it, thanks for sharing.

      Yes! I imported the Google spreadsheet with the information they completed in the Google Form and…presto, changeo…done! Super easy! I need to write a blog post on how to do it. I’ll add that to my list…
