google maps

View University in a larger map

Another great and exciting component of Google is Google maps. I could find myself fall for this site, the possibilities are endless. Imagine taking the class on a virtual tour of the world, they could see into someones backyard on the other side of the world, view the location of tourist designations or even restaurants. This tool would be a god sent in both my hospitality or tourism classes of the future. We could plan a round the world tour, stopping over at all the exciting places, go shopping in exotic places, stay at the most exclusive places and eat in the worlds finest restaurants all of this and it didn't cost us one cent. What a way to ensure student participation, the topics studied would be so exciting, I bet there wouldn't be one incident of non compliance.
