Digital Footprints
Description: Have you considered when you travel the web, you leave a footprint wherever you go. The web is not really anonymous. Where you go, you leave a footprint. Some are washed away in the sand, others leave permanent marks. If you don’t manage your footprint – someone else will.

This session will introduce the idea of a digital footprint, considering both the positive and concerning aspects. Additionally we will discuss what it means to manage or build a positive digital footprint and how important it is for students to be thoughtfully in control of their online image.ISTE 2012 Death of the Traditional Essay

Engaging Learners through Google Literature Trips – ISTE 2010 – COTA 2012

Looking for a way to engage students in literature, introduce geography concepts, provide background knowledge, and provide your students access and exposure to the world around them? Engage students with integrated visual learning using Google Earth to develop the geographic story/timeline connecting to literature you study in class.

Google Literature Trips mash up literature with geography. We will explore the basics of Google Earth such as navigation toolbar, measurement tools, featured content, placemarks, and layers of information. It is also possible while building a Google Lit Trip with a class to address National Geographic’s Five Themes of Geography.
