Unit 6.1 introduction: We are explorers

Creating geotrails

About this unit

Software:     Google Earth / My Maps feature of Google Maps / My Places feature of Bing Maps

Outcome:   Trail in Google Earth annotated with text, photos, video, audio, hyperlinks or other information

A huge amount of the information we access on a computer is linked to a physical location. Access to the Web via smart phones makes this information accessible on the ground now, as well as from the desktop. This unit provides a bridge between the real and the virtual as children capture their own original photos, audio and video ‘on location’ before they add them as a layer into a computer-based map, creating a virtual tour for others to explore.
