Digital Storytelling: Hands-On with Google Earth Web

Google Earth Web (www.google.com/earth/) is the cloud-based version of the free Google Earth desktop application. The web version has fewer features than the desktop version, however, this often creates a lower technology learning curve for mastering the web version. Yet the web version still has a robust suite of features that makes Google Earth Web the perfect tool for designing and sharing place-based, interactive, multimedia stories. Unlike the desktop version, the web version lends itself well to collaborative projects too, making it ideal for student group projects. This workshop uses the live application interface to design a multimedia story, demonstrates how to share it online, and provides suggestions for recording our digital story as a video. The instructor will provide participants with a story plan and digital content, so that we can jump right in to learning and creating.
