One of my favourite things to do with students is connect them globally with others around the world, and I’ve written about that here in earlier posts. I’m starting to daydream about getting back to a school one day soon, and one of the things I’ve missed is participating in, not just suggesting, some of these awesome projects!
If you or your class are interested, consider signing up for the Art Miles Project in Japan this year. The sign up deadline is May 31, 2014 and the English registration instructions are provided here.
If you are looking for interesting ways to use Google Earth, check out Google Lit Trips where you can see how media can be embedded into placeholders in Google Earth tours. This place-based storytelling helps to bring some of your favourite children’s literacy alive, using Google Earth. You and your students could consider making your own tours after you check out some samples. Very Cool!
