The 2012 Google Geo Teachers Institutes will take place this Summer in 2 European locations! The events will be held at the Google Dublin and Google London offices on June 13-14th and June 20-21st.

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 Summer, Google is hosting the third annual Google Geo Teachers Institutes. 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 EarthSketchUp, 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.
