GoogleLitTrips專案的創立者Jerome Burg博士報告的題目是GoogleLitTrips偉大的文學作品、全球化的教育、21世紀師生面對的現代技術,其中介紹了獲獎的GoogleLitTrips專案,通過將21世紀的谷歌地圖技術與旅程文學中表現出的時代智慧相結合起來,學生與教育者就有了一種全新的方法來學習文學、地理、世界歷史和文化,

Google Lit Trips aren’t like sparknotes and other resources that can be used to circumvent the need to actually do the reading. They are designed to stimulate higher level thinking skills and to connect the story’s themes and messages to the issues of the real world in which students live.

The short version is simple. Google Lit Trips are free downloadable files that mark the journeys of characters from famous literature on the surface of Google Earth. At each location along the journey there are placemarks with pop-up windows containing a variety of resources including relevant media, thought provoking discussion starters, and links to supplementary information about “real world” references made in that particular portion of the story.

The focus is on creating engaging and relevant literary experiences for students. I like to say Google Lit Trips “3-dimensionalize” the reading experience by placing readers “inside the story” traveling alongside the characters; looking through the windshield of that old jalopy in The Grapes of Wrath or waddling alongside Mr. and Mrs. Mallard’s duckling family in Make Way for Ducklings.”
