The 2011 Google Geo Teachers Institutes will take place September 23-24 at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington DC and September 26-27th at the University of Southern Maine Lewiston-Auburn College in Lewiston, Maine.

For years, Google's Geo products have been identified as a powerful learning toolkit that can help students conceptualize, visualize, share, and communicate information about the world around them.

This September, Google is hosting the second Google Geo Teachers Institute. This event is a FREE professional development experience designed to help educators get the most from Google's Geo products and technologies. The Geo Teachers Institute is an intensive, two-day event where participants get hands-on experience with Google's Geo products: Google Earth, Google SketchUp, and Google Maps, including Mars, Moon, and Sky in Google Earth. Attendees will learn about innovative instructional strategies and receive resources to share with colleagues. The Google Geo Education team hopes this event will empower educators to bring the world's geographic information to students in a compelling, fresh, and fun way.This is an event only for those who have applied and received notice that they have been accepted to attend.
