Geography of my Browser: I love to keep the links from the chat even though I know they are in the LiveBinder. I just learned about One Tab extension for Chrome Browser so I can one page with all the links I click:

07:52 - Wes Fryer @wfryer
Great idea to use a live Kahoolawe game in this webinar!

08:00 - Wes Fryer @wfryer

08:12 - Kim T. AZ
Kahoot is one of the favorite resources for so many educators

08:14 - Peggy George
hooray! great to see so many of you making it in :-)

08:20 - Wes Fryer @wfryer

08:29 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love Kahoot. Did a competitive Kahoot with a class in Indiana on Dot Day (Sept. 15).

08:39 - Peggy George
hahaha lost cause :-) clever!

08:52 - Kim T. AZ
The pressure :)

08:57 - Peggy George
make a guess if you don't know :-)

09:19 - @DrThomasHO (Indiana)
@plnaugle WHO won? #BackHomeAgainInIndiana :p

09:37 - Peggy George
hmmm-- no all of the above?

09:37 - @plnaugle (Paula)
The class in Indiana. :)

09:48 - Peggy George
super job!

10:06 - Peggy George
no music on my iPhone--must just be on the browser version

10:11 - Suzana Lazarevic Petrovic
It was my country!

10:14 - Peggy George
I'm always the slow one!!!

10:19 - Peggy George
Awesome Suzana!!!!

10:22 - Wes Fryer @wfryer
We can't hear music

10:49 - Wes Fryer @wfryer
So it's not distracting :-)

10:49 - Susie @shighley
All of those choices look good to me

11:01 - Peggy George
yes tricky

11:17 - @DrThomasHO (Indiana)
that's why I didN'T answer!

11:19 - Peggy George
wonderful example!

11:26 - Sheri Edwards
I just see choices. No questions.

11:33 - Peggy George
That's the advantage of being a librarian Susie!

11:47 - Peggy George
she's showing the questions on the screen here

11:53 - @DrThomasHO (Indiana)
hooray @shighley in #Indiana

11:58 - Sheri Edwards
Ah. I see.

12:13 - Susie @shighley
That's okay. I'll take the intrinsic motivation

12:22 - Peggy George
Yes seeing your slide great!

12:34 - Anne-Louise
I have two devices on so no problem with screens

12:49 - Peggy George
good for you Anne-Louise :-)

12:52 - Anne-Louise
Because I take notes in my blog so I have two screens

12:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Students love playing Kahoot. We use it each week to review our social studies skills.

13:44 - Sheri Edwards
That's fine; just figuring out how Kahoot works. Good to see you can have thoughtful questions with discussion.

13:45 - Peggy George
You can follow along with Laura's presentation on her special Livebinder (part of our big Livebinder today) (Laura’ Livebinder with all of her resources)

Hello @stidmama.

13:51 - stidmama
sorry I am late, the rain was like a lullaby!

13:54 - Peggy George
Hi Stidmama! Great to see you!

14:04 - Peggy George
Welcome back Dave :-)

14:39 - Peggy George
there is such a tendency to ask recall questions in geography/social studies.

14:49 - stidmama
Already <3 this!

14:54 - Dave #2
Great topic ,thanks

15:13 - Peggy George
If you have questions for Laura as we go along please type them here in the chat and we'll ask them on the mic during Q/A

16:07 - Peggy George
you can even incorporate geography in physical education :-)

16:23 - stidmama
I use a short period in my day to use content-area learning... which IS part of the required curriculum (just not tested)

16:35 - @bcdtech Maureen
Pop geography questions into a breakoutedu

17:02 - Peggy George
This is the Connecticut social studies framework:

17:07 - Dave #2
Is it useful to incorporate geo skills into others subjects or assignments?

17:21 - stidmama
I don't get as much in as I wish I did... but I do at least once use a WA state CBA for exploration.

17:27 - Peggy George
that's a great way to do it @stidmama!

17:54 - Peggy George
very helpful to see question examples!

18:13 - Peggy George
notice that these great questions start with why/how and not where :-)

20:36 - Peggy George
this would be a great opportunity for students to do recorded interviews with their grandparents :-)

20:43 - Peggy George
Welcome Sandra!

21:03 - Peggy George
mashup maps

21:10 - stidmama
Was thinking about doing a family traditions-history survey in November, this makes me more determined. :-)

21:33 - Peggy George
perfect time to do that stidmama!

21:59 - @bcdtech Maureen
I loved collaborating with the Academia Britannica Cuscatleca in ElSalvador on Un Goals, back when I worked at my former school.

22:11 - Peggy George
Uconn Magic

22:12 - Kim T. AZ
Tony Vincent showed an example of using maps in Adobe Draw -

22:33 - Peggy George

22:55 - Peggy George
AZ has rich Native American and Hispanic resources!!!

23:39 - Peggy George
Love that control question! can spark a lot of conversation!

23:42 - @bcdtech Maureen
Uconn magic looks like an excellent resource. Would love to have the kids in my school look at our little piece of the Conn River Valley over time- lots of changes that I have seen in the last 40 years.

24:13 - Dave #2
We use google earth pro a lot, it's free and images of study areas.

24:53 - Peggy George
A great link: (What is Geography? National Geographic Society-student version)

25:09 - Susie @shighley
We used to celebrate National Geography Awareness week and have door decorating contests; had a teacher who participated quite a bit with our state geography alliance

25:16 - Susie @shighley
our state

25:36 - Sheri Edwards

25:39 - Peggy George

25:43 - stidmama
@Susie that sounds amazing

25:58 - Peggy George
Super idea Susie!!!

26:35 - Peggy George
oh I love Walk My World!!!

26:55 - Peggy George

26:56 - Sheri Edwards
This link works:

27:32 - Peggy George
thanks Sheri!

28:06 - Peggy George
If any of you have great geography projects or links to share please post them in the chat and I'll add them to our Livebinder later.

28:39 - Peggy George
looks like we don't need the www on the link. Thanks Sheri!

29:09 - Peggy George

29:20 - Peggy George
that's the link to that resource she's showing us

29:52 - Sheri Edwards
You're welcome :)

32:33 - Ben
Are there other open source global data bases similar to Gapminder?

32:39 - Sheri Edwards
Years ago I noticed students had no clue where they were in relation to even the nearest large city, so I purchased a huge US wall map and the custodian put it up in the hallway to our gym and students are always gathering around it now to find where places are and where we live. It's amazing what one giant map can do.

33:16 - Peggy George
when you're exploring Laura's Livebinder be sure to check out all of the sub-tabs! The Resource link is loaded with all of these resources she is pointing out.

33:24 - stidmama
The Washington State CBAs might be interesting to others...

34:00 - Peggy George
Sheri, that's true for adults too! Amazing when people are stopped on the street and asked if they know where Syria is (example). No clue!

34:15 - Peggy George
Terrific stidmama! I'll add that to our Livebinder!

35:59 - John Dupuis 2
With Google Earth evolving as the technology advances, what would be recommended as a good up-to-date resource to learn how to get the most out of GE in the classroom?

36:06 - @bcdtech Maureen
Checking out the grade 4 Esri inquiry link... such a rich resource! Do you use this Paula?

36:38 - Peggy George

42:44 - stidmama
@ John I would start here for ideas for Google Earth -- and also the archives for classroom2.0 live have some good info on various google apps

42:57 - Peggy George
we'll have to spend a lot of time exploring these amazing resources! :-)

43:36 - Peggy George

43:52 - Peggy George

43:56 - @bcdtech Maureen
I found out the other day when I was writing about using maps in the classroom for a quick blog post, that my school blocks Google Maps. I got the IT to turn it on- but only for teachers. Apparently it is not part of GAFE.

44:25 - Peggy George
yes we have had several presenters talk about iEarn! Always present at the Global Education Conference in November :-)

44:36 - Peggy George

44:45 - Sheri Edwards
it does cost to join.

44:59 - stidmama
Thank you so much for these amazing resources!

45:20 - Peggy George

45:22 - John Dupuis 2
@ stidmama ...thank you!

45:38 - Peggy George
so many new resources for me!!!

45:59 - stidmama
The Free Tech for Teachers website (love it!) has some links to lesson plans and ideas on this post from 2013

46:06 - @bcdtech Maureen
This is just a general blog post I did the other day... more about using maps vs geography

46:19 - Peggy George
That's amazing Maureen!! Why would your school agree to unblock it for teachers and not students?

46:21 - Anne-Louise
Wow, did Laura create this binder? So when I share with colleagues, I credit her?

46:37 - Wes Fryer @wfryer
The resources are fantastic

47:03 - Peggy George
global population

47:35 - Sharon Gullett
amazing curation of resources

47:38 - Peggy George
This Livebinder is loaded with so many valuable links :-)

48:04 - Peggy George
and when you explore them in a Livebinder they are live links and you can click on anything within the site and never leave the Livebinder

48:34 - Peggy George

48:45 - Wes Fryer @wfryer
Resources on GeoMaps!

48:55 - Peggy George
this guided tour through the Livebinder is so helpful!

49:11 - @bcdtech Maureen
What was that video that showed panoramic views of what it looked like in people's house all over the globe? There was also a really cool book that showed photos of people around the world sitting outside of their houses with all their stuff.. can't find my links

49:19 - stidmama
Maureen, I always love reading your posts -- this one about the maps is so on target for me right now!

50:10 - Peggy George
if you have a question that you haven't posted please type it now.

50:19 - Anne-Louise
OMG, thank you.

50:23 - Susie @shighley
Can't believe how fast the hour went

50:45 - Peggy George
I added a lot of great geography games to our show Livebinder today

50:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
Wow! amazing resource collection! Thank you!

I love GoogleTreks! (GoogleTreks: site created by Dr. Alice Christie for using Google maps across all subject areas. Synthesize information in one easy-to-use map that places text, pictures, audio files, video files, and much more in one central location. Organized by subject matter and specific age groups. Many exemplars for lessons and units.)

51:43 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- It was a GAFE thing ... age related. The IT guy quoted something, sent to super... think I am out of luck.

52:51 - Peggy George
You can even use PokemonGo for geography! (Katie Ann Wilson: Mapping Your Town or Area via Pokemon Go for Education)

52:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- so I think I have to jump thru hoops:

53:06 - @bcdtech Maureen
Here's the thing: Google My Maps is an Additional Service not covered by your organization’ Google Apps for Education agreement. Most Additional Services are governed by the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, and some have service-specific terms. Our Google Apps for Education Privacy Notice describes how Google collects and uses information for Apps for Education accounts. You can learn more about the differences between Core and Additional Services in our Help Center.
If you have end users under the age of 18, your institution is required under its Google Apps agreement to get parental consent before allowing these users to use Google My Maps. More information your institution can share with students and parents about Google’ services and privacy practices is available in our Help Center.
You acknowledge and agree that you will comply with all laws and regulations apply to your provision of Google My Maps to your end users, including, as applicable, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Children’ Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

53:52 - Peggy George
That's why Alice Christie chose to use Google Maps in her GoogleTreks--far less bandwidth than Google Earth

54:09 - Susie @shighley
Isn't it true that blogger falls under that too, not officially part of GAFE?

54:19 - Peggy George (Larry Ferlazzo: Best Online Geography Games)

54:27 - @bcdtech Maureen
There is a way to use Google Earth on Chromebooks, but it is pokey- even with one user at a time

55:16 - @bcdtech Maureen

55:17 - Peggy George
fantastic resource! (History/Geography Lessons in Google Drive folder from Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, Sarah Landis-TeachersGiveTeachers)

any other questions? :-)

55:57 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Susie- I think you're right, but I don't have kids using it currently- was surprised to find out about maps

56:01 - Anthippi Harou
Thank you Laura Krenicki and the organizers of this terrific event! Awesome resources!Lots of hard work behind this worth-exploring livebinder!

56:23 - Ben
what do you think of those virtual tours using Google glasses?

56:23 - Peggy George
Laura have you tried PokemonGo for geography?

56:27 - stidmama
I am so grateful for all the time that went into today... thank you. I always have questions the next day!

56:45 - Ben

56:46 - @plnaugle (Paula)
