Google Tour Creator- Creating a FREE web-based Google Street Maps Based 'Virtual Tour'

Google Tour Creator- Creating a FREE web-based Google Street Maps Based 'Virtual Tour'

Google Tour Creator is a FREE web-based tool lets you build a VR ‘tour’ using Google Street View imagery and the bonus is that you can even add your own 360 photos, if you have that available. The interface is designed with educators and pupil in mind and is all simply drag-and-drop. The flexibility of tour creator is that you can choose any points of interest within the Google Street View maps and add extra texts, or points of interest if you like. With the Virtual Tour you can save any tour you have made and also publish it, for public or private use. The ability to import tours to the Google Expeditions app is not available yet but will be very soon states Google. Being able to create an Expedition and share it with a classroom of pupils is a great opportunity for technology being able to bring people closer, to understand other people worlds. Not every pupil will need a VR headset as this can be created and used on a laptop attached to an interactive whiteboard, but for those that are lucky enough to have a class set the sense of immersion and engagement would be outstanding I think. This presentation informs you what Google Tour Creator is and I have created a simple model that can be used to show pupils as an example.

UK Links With Malawi (Imports and Exports)

UK Links With Malawi (Imports and Exports)

I created this resource for visiting Primary Schools as part of a Malawi Conference, involving teachers from Malawi through the Norwich-Dedza Partnership. The cards are a fun way to explore what Malawi exports to the UK, and the spider diagram gets pupils to attach their lives with the imports brought into the UK. I was expecting older kids than 5 year olds, but it worked from them! All sales from this resource will go to support the Norwich-Dedza Partnership. :)

Who Lives In The City?

Who Lives In The City?

Brazil’s cities are renowned for their rich/poor divide. Favelas, the term used in Brazil for the shanty towns, have grown up on the outskirts of urban areas since the late 19th century. The people who arrive in the city are usually very poor. They have come from the countryside believing the city will be a better place to live providing them with jobs, money and a brighter future for their families. These worksheets put the students in these people shoes and have them try to make the difficult decisions poor people in Brazil, as well as other countries, have to make about moving, once moved and dealing with their choices.
