Discover the earth through visualization and storytelling brought together in a Google Earth collaboration with PBS, National Geographic, and more. Scroll through the site to find ideas to explore, including The 5 Big Beasts of Africa and Sesame Street Around the World. Other ways to explore the site include opening Voyager or look further down the home page to find passports to math, ELA, geography, and social studies. Each passport includes a Google Earth activity and guiding questions for students.

tag(s): digital storytelling (147), maps (297)

In the Classroom

Although this site is useful for many purposes, sometimes it is best just to let students explore and discover on their own. Share Voyager with students and allow them time to look around and select places that intrigue them. Encourage them to learn more about an area or subject of interest found on the site. Instead of writing down information, ask students to use Google Docs or Microsoft Word to begin research. Using these online documents affords many benefits, including the ability to add comments, highlight information, and add links to online information. Once research is underway, suggest that students use a bookmarking tool like SearchTeam, reviewed here, to organize information. SearchTeam includes the ability to add notes to bookmarks, making it easy for students to label and add information for later use. As a final project, ask students to create their own virtual tour of a location using Story Maps, reviewed here, that includes images, videos, and text.

Ask students to use the templates found on Webnode to enhance their learning style while including images, videos, and their writing. One idea is for students to create a website through the persona of a person living in one of the countries or different a period sharing their way of life. Ask students to modify their learning by creating timelines using Timelinely, reviewed here, to document events from European history.

The United States Diplomacy Center shares free simulations providing hands-on exercises in dealing with complex world problems. Topics include migration, nuclear arms, global health issues, and more. Free materials include student learning packets available in three different ability levels and videos featuring content experts. Educator materials include all information to conduct each scenario including student materials and tools for productive negotiations.

tag(s): animals (323), cross cultural understanding (137), debate (46), migration (61), nuclear energy (27), oceans (162), pollution (67), water (137)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of these free materials to immerse students in learning about current events topics through a global lens. One important component of these lessons includes the task of completing a series of formal and informal discussions on each topic. As students identify key topics and information, enhance their learning by asking them to use Lino, reviewed here, to create digital sticky notes to share among teachers and peers. Use options within Lino to color code the sticky notes to identify the group creating the note or different concepts to address throughout the simulation. Simulations also provide background information on each topic, use this information as a starting point, then have students research each topic further on their own or in groups. Share bookmarks and resources using SearchTeam, reviewed here. In addition to sharing bookmarks, SearchTeam includes tools for adding notes and comments for all team members to use when collaborating together. Throughout your simulation activities, use FlipGrid, reviewed here, to modify learning and to pose essential questions discussed within the activity. Have students add video responses within Flipgrid to share their perspective and solutions to the different problems. As a final learning activity, provide students options for sharing their conclusions and suggestions to the simulation activities through a variety of multimedia choices. Instead of a book report or PowerPoint presentation consider asking students to create a digital book using Book Creator, reviewed here, or a multimedia presentation using Adobe Spark for Education, reviewed here. Both options offer tools for transforming students' learning to include video, images, and more to share their final conclusion and perspective on the topic included in the simulation.

In the Classroom

Share maps from this site on your interactive whiteboard during your study of explorers and previous time periods to help students understand the difference in transportation modes compared to today's options. Before discussing as a class, have students explore these maps on their own then enhance and share their findings with a quick and easy website creator like Carrd, reviewed here. Use this site as a model and have students create their own maps to demonstrate the path of explorers, characters in novels, or historical events using Story Maps, reviewed here. Story Maps is a multimedia tool that can redefine student learning by offering tools for creating interactive maps that include images, videos, and text.

Discover music from all over the world and from over 100 years back in time! Visit Radiooooo and start listening immediately (no registration required) or download the iOS or Android app. Just select a country (all countries in yellow have music), decade, and mood (from tabs at the bottom) the music will begin. Create a playlist from different countries and decades using Taxi Mode. Create an account to save your favorites, or upload your own favorite music.

tag(s): 1900s (45), countries (84), radio (27), songs (51)

In the Classroom

Social studies will have a heyday with this program! Complement any period in time with its music. Use music from the site as an anticipatory set or "activator" to introduce a unit or lesson on a projector or interactive whiteboard. Play music from the period you are studying during reading or research time. Use during current events for students to hear the music and language of the country of the article. Allow students to explore the site on their own, and then share their findings with classmates. Ask students to exchange paper journals and write about their impressions of the music and make comparisons to their favorites of today using a blog tool like Telegra.ph, reviewed here. With Telegra.ph you just click on an icon to upload images from your computer, add a YouTube or Vimeo, or Twitter links. This blog creator requires no registration. Redefine learning by challenging students create multimedia timelines (with music, photos, videos, and more) using Timeline JS, reviewed here. Any teacher will appreciate Radiooooo. Play music selections quietly during any subject and student work time. Filter distractions by finding instrumentals to play during silent reading time, test taking, lab activities, or any other quiet time during class. World language teachers can use this tool to introduce music from all the countries whose population speak the language they teach. This tool would also be perfect for performance groups such as drama clubs or musicals that need background music. Use background music for poetry readings during poetry month.
