VSTE Goes Green: Over the years we’ve made an effort to reduce the amount of paper waste that gets accumulated by reducing the scope of the printed program. This year we will provide a printed conference program with only a summary schedule of the sessions available during each breakout session. For the full detailed listing of each session we encourage attendees to make use of our online schedule here which will work on mobile devices and all major platforms.

Please Note: This session has been cancelled


Join David & Alfonso from the Virginia Trekkers as we share examples of using Google Maps, Google Earth, and various mash-ups to teach reading, writing, math, science, and maybe even a little social studies. Learn how you and your students can create customized maps and flyover video tours. Discover sites that combine timelines with maps for teaching the sequence of stories and historical events. See how students have used maps to learn about distance, measurement, elapsed time, multiplication, and shapes. Explore the ocean depths, outer space, habitats, and animal migration routes all within Google Earth. Many student-created examples will be shared, and you’ll leave our session with a repertoire of resources to use back in your own classroom.
