Welcome to the Trainer's Corner! If you are training fellow staff at your non-profit organization or any colleagues related to your work, these resources are provided to help you prepare and present, and help your trainees learn and develop Google Earth & Maps projects.
Materials for NGO Trainings
To access the following training materials, please e-mail EarthOutreach-Trainers@google.com to request them.
Suggested Agendas are to be used as a guide for what to cover during workshops of various lengths.
Trainer's Scripts are step-by-step instructions for trainers during a workshop, including what to demonstrate, what to say, things to remember, and how to answer common questions. You may refer back to it during the workshop, and use the checkboxes in the left column to check off topics as you cover them. Read the script in its entirety at least two days before the workshop.
Introductory presentations are these slides at the beginning of your workshop to introduce your trainees to Google's Geo products, and to introduce them to several concepts at the beginning of the workshop.
Technique Tours are collections of Google Earth projects created by non-profit and public benefits groups that serve as examples of various techniques available in Google Earth.
Workbooks are for use by your workshop attendees -- you may print the workbook and bind them, or simply give the attendees a link to it on a Google Sites page.
Movies are great for demonstrations if you are traveling to areas with little or no Internet connectivity.
Google Map Maker is a service that allows you to create a map by adding or editing features such as roads, businesses, parks, schools and more.
