Suggestions for uses in a variety of subjects will be discussed. Google Tour Builder allows user to take a virtual field trip. In this presentation, attendees will be shown how to tell a story using this tool. Specific skills to be demonstrated include how to insert text, video, dates, Google Street Views into a user story, and how to export a tour to Google Earth. Suggestions for uses in a variety of subjects will be discussed.
