GeoTrio lets you create a virtual tour of just about anyplace on a map. You type in addresses or locations and easily create multiple “stops” that show the Google Street View snapshots of the area. You can also upload your own images.
But that’s not all.
What really makes GeoTrio stand out is the ability to easily make an audio recording for each stop on the map.
In many ways its similar to Tripline, which you can read about on The Best Sites Where Students Can Plan Virtual Trips (I’m adding GeoTrio to that list, too). Tripline is “slicker” and lets you grab images off the Web. However, it does not have the ability to provide audio narration.
I’ll be having students try-out GeoTrio in our upcoming field trip in a couple of weeks.
