*Using Google Earth for Remote Teaching*
Tuesday, June 16th at 1 PM Eastern

*About this Webinar:*

Google Earth is a powerful, but easy-to-use platform for
virtually exploring natural features around the globe. The capability to
create and share custom content for Google Earth has resulted in an
abundance of presentations, exercises, and virtual field trips that are
available to educators. This webinar will help you integrate Google Earth
into remote Earth science courses by providing background on the tool and
examples of its use in geoscience classes.

In addition to the regular webinar overviewing Google
Earth’s options, capabilities, and use cases, the presenters will do a *follow
up hands-on session* two days later that will give participants a chance to
work through some Google Earth activities themselves in a mentored
(virtual) setting. This is a great opportunity to learn to use Google Earth
the way your students would use it.

This webinar is offered by the Geological Society of America and the
National Association of Geoscience Teachers. IRIS is a promotional partner
for this webinar series.
