Long-time educator, Dr. Alice Christie, coined the concept of GoogleTreks™ as an exciting approach to teaching and learning. Enabled by Web 2.0 tools, GoogleTreks™ allows teachers and students to synthesize information in one easy-to-use map that places text, pictures, audio files, video files, and much more in one central location.
