Google tools can be used to enrich your students' understanding of their place in the world. In this session you will see a variety of ways that students and teachers have used such Google tools as Google Maps and Google Earth to engage students at all grade levels in high level geography and spatial learning experiences. We invite you to join this session and share your own experiences providing students with rich and varied learning experiences through the use of these tools.
