You might already be familiar with Google’s core suite of apps: Drive, Gmail, Calendar, etc. But do you know about the Cultural Institute, Tour Builder, or My Maps? These are some amazingly versatile Google apps for the classroom that can be integrated into multiple subjects and disciplines. Students can visit museums virtually from around the world, create their own museums, or access primary sources; give an audience a whirlwind tour of the world while teaching them about people, places, and things; and build their own maps while learning geography, math, and other subjects! Join this session as we get hands on and learn how you can expand your Googlescope as a teacher! In the end, you’ll walk away with pre-made lessons, tons of ideas for classroom integration, and some bonus Googley games!
