Next week I'm going to be giving a session on design tips on 'geo story telling' at the Google geo teachers institute. I'll be talking about how to use overviews to help your users, a neat simple way to show time animations and my experiences getting students to produce their own tours.

I'll be offering a session at 'Google Geo Teachers Institute' in Mountain View next week on 'Map Design for Teachers'. To illustrate what it will cover, the two images are of Portsmouth in the UK. Left is the OS (Ordnance Survey) map, right is mapquest with lots of layers turned on. In the session I'll be explaining why the OS map is more effective compared to Mapquest map and helping teachers learn how to apply the same rules to their own maps.

Hi, I am an Google Earth geek and especially a Google Earth tour geek.  I work for a Uni in the UK where I teach and support teaching.  I've been blogging about Google Earth for over 5 years now.  If you're a teacher, I have an open, online course I designed especially for teachers that goes into Google Earth tours in more depth.
