For years, Google's geo products have been identified as a powerful learning toolkit that can help students conceptualize, visualize, share, and communicate information about the world around them.
The Prague Google Geo Summit is a fantastic two day event taking place in the Borupgaard Senior High School on Saturday May 28th and Sunday May 29th 2013. This event is a professional development experience designed to help educators get the most from Google's geo products and technologies. The event is an intensive, two-day event where participants get hands-on experience using Google Earth and Google Maps, including a focus on features like Ocean, Mars, Moon and Sky in Google Earth.
We have sessions lead by some of the worlds leading Google Geo experts including Google staff and Google Certified Teachers and trainers.
Attendees will learn about innovative instructional strategies and receive resources to share with colleagues. The Google Geo Education team hopes this event will empower educators to bring the world's geographic information to students in a compelling, fresh, and fun way.
The summit will be run over two days and the format will be as follows:
For the first day all attendees will be together in the main theatre of the International School of Prague. The day will be led by Tina Ornduff and the Google Outreach team and will follow a fun and high-energy pathway through the use of Google GEO tools in Education. Attendees will be grouped in teams and will work together on group learning projects for part of the day.
The second day will be a similar format to regular Google in Education Summits. Google GEO experts from across Europe and beyond will lead focussed sessions in individual classrooms on many topics relating to ‘Maps’ and ‘Earth’. There will be multiple break-out sessions so users can choose the sessions most applicable to them and their learning goals. We still have some free slots for presenters so if you are passionate about Ed Tech and GEO please submit a session proposal and we will get back to you.
Saturday night will be the GEO Networking party, a fun Geography themed networking event in the historic old town of Prague with free drinks for all summit attendees.
