Recent Google Earth Discoveries

  1. Hi. I’m a teacher that helped create Google Lit Trips. My friend Jerome Burg came up with the idea and started the site and I made the trips for The Aeneid, The Odyssey, and Macbeth.
    Just thought I’d let you know that some of them actually have quite a bit of accompanying information. My Aeneid trip has tons of photos at each stop, links to sites on the dig at Troy, Punic War history, archeological digs at the oracle spot in Italy, and more. Just click on the arrow for each stop and see what comes up.
    Another way to do this is to have students fill out the info boxes. Googlelittrips is a good way both to present and guide and to assess and build.
    Thanks for featuring us. We hope more people use these and get on board, and we’d love to have more people making the trips and submitting them to us. Please visit the site to tell us what you think.

  2. Thanks, Matthew. The Aeneid was one that I didn’t get around to viewing, but I’ll do that now. I plan to use the site as a demonstration for my workshops next week. I think you guys are doing some great work!
