You can use Google Earth place marks as the basis of storytelling. Get the children to use Google Earth to plan a journey – start small! (A local cycle path is often a good start, or somewhere they visited on a school trip). Trace the journey using the path tool (click on the ruler in the top menu bar). Add place marks along the route to create the story.
You could also add audio of the child reading his/her story.
Didn’t try with Google Earth but with Google Maps. The main difficulty was the fact that pupils don’t have Gmail addresses.
But the line of the exercise is good especially for geography lessons and civics. I think it can works with literature and history too.
