Geography is All Around Us- Connect through Technology

Hi Chet's Creek. Thank you to Melanie Holtsman for inviting me to be a guest blogger on your great Professional Development blog.

My name is Silvia Tolisano and I am the Technology Integration Facilitator at San Jose Episcopal Day School and wanted to share my presentation "Geography is All Around Us- Connect through Technology" from the The Florida Technology Conference in Education in Orlando.
  1. What is Geography?
  2. Why Geography?
  3. How to connect?

The majority of the session was spent on the third part "How to Connect?" by sharing concrete examples and ideas as well as what tools you can use.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to stop by at my blog and contact me.

Hi Silvia! I loved your presentation. I wish I could have been there to see it live!
Keeping up with Jose's adventures is still top on the list of favorite things my students have done this year. We are going to be experimenting with Google maps as part of our Book of the Month response next week - they can't wait!
