How do you use information from personal travel experiences to help connect students to geographic concepts, beyond a typical travel picture slideshow? This session will model methods for incorporating materials collected from personal travel experiences, and also provide information on organizations and fellowships that are available to teachers to help them travel. Through the incorporation of geospatial technologies, photos, and other technologies, teachers can use professional and personal travel to bring meaningful learning experiences back to their own students.
