Google Lit Trips uses the technologies of Google Earth, Social Networking, and a website together to bring literature to life through virtual mapping.

Google Lit Trips provides professional development by allowing teacher access to previously constructed Google Lit Trips, and also provides teachers with the ability to interact and post new trips online.
