Creating Global Learners with Geo Tools: We live and work in a global society, and yet for many students , their frame of reference is a very small community or neighborhood. Expand their horizons by including Google’s Geo tools and apps so students can grow their understanding of how they fit in the global landscape. By getting kids creating we can better see how they are building skill sets and interpreting content to become global citizens. We will explore a variety of maker activities that involve geo tools, including Google Maps and Google MyMaps. Sample projects will be shared, and you will build models and plan future opportunities for your students.
