A Blended Learning Ecosystem Built Within the Google Apps Core Suite
Dream with me for a second. What if we could achieve the "verbs" of what makes blended learning such a fantastic methodology by using tools that anyone with an internet connection can access 24/7. Through the use of the Google Apps Core Suite (Docs, Sites, Calendar, Mail) we are able to leverage tighter feedback loops and provide student-centric digital spaces for collaboration and sharing. We have access to an easy to use space for legacies and portfolios of higher level project(s), and ridiculously simple access points via mail and chat to the big three interactions we need to leverage; student/teacher, student/student, and student/content.

Presenting the World: Using Google's Mapping Resources

Short description for catalog (30 words): Google Earth and Maps are about more than geography. Both include tools for you and your students to present history, literature, science, art and more in unique and interesting ways.

Longer description for website (200 words): Although many teachers use Google Earth and Maps to give students a better look at their world, you may not know that those resources also include tools that make them a great alternative to the common PowerPoint presentation, both for teachers and students.

In this fast-paced session, we'll demonstrate how to create a simple presentation with markers that include text, web links, images, audio and video recordings, and other media (and that works well with your interactive whiteboard). We'll also discuss how Earth and Maps could be used by students to build projects to demonstrate their learning in many academic areas. Those projects and presentations, as well as yours, can then be easily shared through Blackboard, email, and other methods of digital distribution. We'll also show where to find hundreds of presentations created by teachers and students that you can download and use the first day of school.

All of the resources used in this session, and many more to explore following the Institute, will be available on the web.

Bring your laptop with Google Earth installed (free download from http://www.google.com/earth) to follow along with the examples. Getting started only requires basic experience with Google Earth and/or maps.
