Several travel-planning websites have cropped up recently, where you can look at itineraries other people have developed and also easily develop your own from scratch. I’ve found them helpful to me on my personal travels. They are also great learning opportunities for English Language Learners to develop knowledge about reading, writing, and geography. Student can use these sites to develop their own travel itineraries (real or imagined) and allow others to see their plans on the web.
TripWiser and TripTie are two easily navigable sites to make these types of travel plans. Yahoo! Travel is another one.
I’ve put links to these sites on my Examples of Student Work page under Student Trips.
Thanks for the tip on these sites. I’ve only just started checking out TripWiser and I can already tell I like it.
I wanted to thank you for your good words about TripWiser and also to find out what, in your opinion, kind of trips would be most useful for the student community?
Have you checked out http://www.qtripper.com as a travel resource? Students can create a travel scrap book for group trips or individual accounts for personal trips.
