Twelve Days of Tech Tips
or Really Cool Things You Can Do With Google
Day 7 - Google Maps and Geoguessr
GeoGuessr is available on the web (be sure to scroll down the home page to see different locations that are more narrow in scope), and will also work on the iPad. Creating an account is optional--you can play without it--but if you or your students would like to save previously played games, having an account makes this possible.
Below is a screen shot of the the first location in a game started under the Famous Places category. (I guessed Venice, placed my pin on the map and scored 4825 points.) The next screen shot wasn't so obvious...a city called Nizhny Novgorod, about 250 miles east of Moscow--the lettering on the signs helped me figure out that one. (I really don't play games all day, but I could've with this one...it's a lot of fun!)
