TGS hosts Google Earth Geography Teachers Course
On Friday 14th June Takapuna Grammar School in partnership with Google Earth Education hosted 20 Geography teachers from around New Zealand for a workshop on the most engaging ways to use the Google Geo Tools in class.
The Presenters on the day were Mr Steve Smith from TGS and Dr John Bailey, Program Manager for Google Earth Education from San Francisco. Steve is a member of the Google Earth Education Experts group who work to support teachers in the use of Google's Geo tools ie Maps, Earth and Streetview etc
The day was a chance for Geography teachers to hear about upcoming product updates and get some expert coaching in the effective use of these digital tools for learning and there were participants from Whangarei to Queenstown signed up for the workshop.
The teachers in attendance enjoyed the opportunity to up-skill themselves and hear from the Global program manager from Google about what is planned for the near future in Geo Education.
A big thanks to Takapuna Grammar School for Hosting.
