Google Earth as a teaching resource in the language classroom
Bring your language lesson to life by connecting it to real places around the globe. *New dates and times added!
Google Earth allows users to explore the Earth's surface, view 3D terrain, and access various layers of information, including geographical features, landmarks, and user-contributed content. In the language class, teachers can use Google Earth to create immersive cultural lessons, enabling students to virtually visit foreign countries, explore landmarks, and practise language skills through real-world context and interactive experiences.
About the course
This interactive online workshop will introduce some ideas of how to incorporate Google Earth into your language lessons to provide opportunities for students to explore diverse cultures and expand their understanding of their place in the world.
Participants will have the chance to work in small groups to create resources that bring a topic to life by connecting it to real places.
This is an hour online workshop for all language teachers.
