|EdTech Tool Uses:||Google Earth can bring the world of information alive for students. You can use it at multiple grade levels and in multiple subjects. For a subject, for example, you can take Geography from a a book to Google Earth and go much deeper with it and get students much more excited about it. You can see some popular features here that give a really good idea of what you can do with it to inspire your students to explore the world around them. One example of how I use is is I like to set up scavenger hunts based on a topic of study and give clues, and put students in teams or pairs. I then get them to explore a country, or area and track down the answer based on the clues. There is an entire education section here for teachers that want to use it in their classroom - http://sitescontent.google.com/google-earth-for-educators/classroom-resources.|
