GoogleTreks™, student-friendly web-based lessons/units, contextualize learning by bringing together text, images, videos, audio clips, charts, graphs, primary source material, podcasts, historical or scientific data, other user-created data, and more to engage and motivate digital-age learners. Teachers and students can create GoogleTreks™ using Google My Maps and numerous other Web 2.0 tools. The goal of educators creating Web-based GoogleTreks™ is to effectively integrate technology around specific subject matter. After digital-age learners become familiar with the GoogleTreks™ format and use a variety of Web 2.0 tools, they can create GoogleTreks™ that incorporate their research, photos, podcasts, or other digital data that they wish to share with others around the world. Creating GoogleTreks™ that incorporate authentic data, digital photography, voice notes, and location-based research, which learners gather and compile, is an effective way for learners to engage in problem solving, critical thinking, visual literacy, contexts for spatial and cultural differences, and communication skills. See wwwgoogletreks.org for examples.
