This session will outline how Google Earth skills can be incorporated into the school curriculum and not just the Geography one! This will lead to the discussion of a real, tested, classroom example of building a continuum of skill development leading towards a project planning the first commercial (1937) passenger flight from Southampton (UK) to Cape Town (South Africa) which happened to be on a boat-plane! (25 minutes)
I am the Secondary School Technology for Learning Coordinator at the International School of Geneva - Campus des Nations.
I am the author of geographyalltheway.com - an established website of Geography teaching resources that has a worldwide network of subscribers. I lead professional development workshops on teaching and teaching with technology.
I live in France, teach in Switzerland and come from Yorkshire. My understanding wife and I ran away from the United Kingdom 7 years ago, in a bright red camper van. We chose France for a life of teaching in better weather, supping fine wines close to big mountains. We have since sold the van, had two fantastic children and I have become a bit of a Geography geek and educational technology nut.
