GeoGuessr is a simple game based on Google maps.
An image is provided of an unknown place somewhere in the world and users have to guess where it is and click that place on the map.
As it's based on Google maps street view, users can actually explore around the image and look for clues.
Once they click on the map they will see the real location and how close or far away they were.
Points are awarded depending on how close users are to the real Users have five turns to score as many points as possible.
Using an Interactive White Board, and Triptico to randomly select learners, practitioners can...
- show learners provided images
- ask them to guess where it is and
- ask them to justify their answers by describing what they can see.

A great way to bring the world into the learning environment; good for learners to explore inside the images and pan around to look for clues. Could be used for discriptive language development; get learners to write short descriptions of each of the five places visited during one game.
I found it fun and a little addictive.

Learners can expand their knowledge of current events and other cultures by reading newspapers from around the world. Here they’ll find a comprehensive collection of digital newspapers organized by regions. From Madagascar to Hong Kong to Mexico, they’ll find more newspapers than they can manage. They are not translated, however, so they’ll need to know the native language or try using Google Translate or other translation software.
