Google is constantly amazing me. Honestly, if I wasn’t in the education field, I think I would want to work for Google, solely because of all of the really neat things they are continuously coming up with!
My newest Google obsession? GoogleTreks.
Similar to a virtual field trip, visitors can explore unique and exotic locations using Google’s StreetView technology. I included them in my Virtual FIeld Trip list below, however felt they deserved a post of their own. My personal favorite is their Trek of Darwin’s Gallapagos Island. You can click your way all throughout the island, and even take a “swim” with the sea lions off the coast. It is truly one of the most unique web experiences I have ever seen.
Take a minute this Friday and explore a corner of the world that you might not have ever seen before – and keep checking back, because they are adding more (VENICE! coming soon!). Tell me your favorite destinations in the comments below!
