Enhancing Geographic and Digital Literacy with a Student-Generated Course Portfolio and 'Amazing Race' in Google Earth

A TLT Faculty Fellowship team designed a new approach for student learning in a 400-level earth science seminar course. The course, emphasizing a "green” approach with no papers handed out or collected, relies on students recording audio files and geolocating photos, edited audio, and video files in Google Earth. To assess student geographic knowledge before and after the course, the "Penn State's Amazing Race” game was created in Google Earth to see how long it would take students to find locations. Each student created a course portfolio in Google Earth.
