A Step by Step Guide to Creating A Virtual Field Trip Using Google Earth February, 2014 Since I posted about the " 20 online museums for teachers and students " I received several emails with links, apps, tools and more tips related to educational virtual field trips. One of the links I got included this wonderful guide I am sharing with you below created by Silvia Rosenthal from Langwitches. The guide is about how to frame a virtual field trip using Google Earth.

How to Create a folder in Google Earth How to add an image of a landmark or building How to edit them placemarks and many more. I invite you to download this short guide and use it with your students.

PHAROS - Home Ongoingness: Sarah Manguso on Time, Memory, Beginnings and Endings, and the True Measure of a Life Filled with Aliveness by Maria Popova “Perhaps all anxiety might derive from a fixation on moments — an inability to accept life as ongoing.” Some of humanity’s most celebrated writers and artists have reaped, and extolled, the creative benefits of keeping a diary. For John Steinbeck, journaling was a tool of discipline and a hedge against self-doubt; for Virginia Woolf, a way to “loosen the ligaments” of creativity; for André Gide, a conduit to “spiritual evolution”; for Anaïs Nin, who remains history’s most dedicated diarist, the best way to “capture the living moments.” Joining the canon of insightful meta-diarists is Sarah Manguso with Ongoingness: The End of a Diary (public library) — a collection of fragmentary, piercing meditations on time, memory, the nature of the self, and the sometimes glorious, sometimes harrowing endeavor of filling each moment with maximum aliveness while simultaneously celebrating its presence and grieving its passage. I wrote so I could say I was truly paying attention.

Lo siento!! Here are some final pictures from the end of my time in Guatemala. I learned all about cacao and made some chocolate at the Choco Museo, yum! I am back in the U.S. of A!
