Google Earth has long been a terrific tool for exploring and viewing our planet. Until this past month, it has not been a creation tool. But it is now! Take a look here at all of Google Earth’s features for education here.
New tools in Google Earth allow teachers and students to create and share narratives. Even cooler, these tools allow for collaboration. Projects can have multiple contributors. To top it off, photos and videos can be added to make tours even more engaging. I have a student who is doing a project right now for which this tool will be just perfect. I’ll share with you the finished product when she is done.
