ICT in my Classroom – GeoTweets – Inviting your network into the classroom

Source: tbarrett.edublogs.org

GeoTweeting takes students on a real-time adventure using Twitter and Google Earth.  In this project, the teacher provides several small bits of information to engage the students in their search.  Working collaboratively, students collect information leading them to the final destination using longitude, latitude, time zones, and land marks.
