Free RGS-IBG training

With the generous support of Google™ the RGS-IBG in conjunction with Digital Explorer will be running 10 free of charge Google Earth workshops for LEA-maintained school geography teachers.

These practical workshops show teachers how to create virtual fieldwork using Google Earth. They involve hands-on experience with digital cameras and GPS units creating mini-fieldwork projects outdoors. Participants are then shown how this data can be transformed into a virtual journey using Google Earth.

The workshops will take place across the UK at the following venues:

RGS-IBG, London – Tuesday 16 October 2007
Swansea – Monday 12 November 2007
Newcastle – Monday 19 November 2007
Edinburgh – Tuesday 20 November 2007
Belfast – Monday 10 December 2007
Leeds – Monday 14 January 2008
Birmingham – Monday 28 January 2008
