This GLP is designed to get students working collaboratively and online. There is a vast amount of information and technology that students already use and enjoy using. Let's have them enjoy learning and explore educational and social venues online.
Student will need to access Flickr and Google Maps to collaborate online with students all over the world. They will initially research a biome in collaborative groups as part as your classroom curriculum, and then create a project to publish online. Third, they will upload their pictures thru Flickr and finally add that same image to Google Maps for all of us to see. Students will need to create accounts with Google Maps and Flickr.
There are already some sample images on Flickr and Google Maps.
