What is a Google Lit Trip?
“Lit Trips are downloadable files that mark the journeys of characters from famous literature on the surface of Google Earth. Along the way, placemarks with pop-up windows contain “just in time” resources including relevant media, thought-provoking discussion starters, and links to supplementary information about “real world” references in that portion of the story.” (Welcome to GLT. (2018). Retrieved from http://www.googlelittrips.org/ )
Google Lit Trips can deepen learners’ understanding of a story, as well as aid in developing empathy. Creating and experiencing a Google Lit Trip can stretch student perceptions of the world in new and unique ways.
