On Thursday Thursday 30th November 2017 at 3:15pm (GMT+2) we held a free SchoolNet webinar entitled ‘Putting your story on the map with Google Tour Builder‘‘ which was presented by Linda Foulkes, SMIEE / Freelance Trainer / Consultant / Courseware Author / eLearning Content Creator at Foulkes@Work in the United Kingdom.
How much do you know about Google Tour Builder? Google describes its product like this: “Tour Builder is a new way to show people the places you’ve visited and the experiences you had along the way using Google Earth. It lets you pick the locations right on the map, add in photos, text, and video, and then share your creation.“
Webinar descriptionLinda said, “Students and Teachers can create an interactive timeline-like experience to share information using features from Google Earth, Google Drive, YouTube, Photos, and so much more, using the free tool, Google Tour Builder. Creating a Google Tour transforms your traditional interactive map by adding in a multimedia component that helps students gain a deeper understanding of content. During this session we will explore Tour Builder and learn how to add locations, photos, video and descriptions to create a visual timeline of events.”
