ReaL Pics Pages: Virtual Field Trips (VFTs) & VFT raw material
These pages are unsorted collections of photographs taken by teacher participants in the National Science Foundation funded ReaL Earth System Inquiry . The program was hosted and coordinated by the Paleontological Research Institution and Colgate University.
Below is a draft table of VFTs that will eventually take the form of a searchable database. Are the categories logical? Is anything missing?
In viewing any of these photo sets, Sarah Miller's graphic organizer is a good place to start. That's also the lead into the most developed virtual field trip.
ReaL Fieldtrips linked via Google Earth!!! Email me for this as an attachment. The server hosting this site does not currently serve kmz files. The problem is being addressed.
The Google Earth file is primarily a way to connect the sites below. In the Google Earth (kmz) file, each location below is illustrated with a photograph and then links to the site for that location (that is, links to the site below).
Nevele Falls (Still in draft form, but with lots to explore!) Look for a workshop on Virtual Fieldwork at the conference STANYS in November 2007!
Jud & his New Hartford Colleague's Chapman Creek Tour Draft Large File! 14.3 MB! This VFT is the work of the Earth science teachers at Perry Junior High and it is a work in progress. It is a QuickTime Movie exported from Keynote. Keynote is Apple's presentation software, similar to PowerPoint in certain ways, some features of the interactive slide show export well to the interactive movie, but some features do not work quite as they do in Keynote.
