Google Earth: Bringing the World to the Classroom

Sarah shared a post on the technologies she would love to use in her classroom. One that caught my attention was Google Earth as I had no idea what it was. To know more about it, I found a YouTube video that explained it in detail. It also highlighted the various ways it can be used in the classroom. The ideas for using it in the classroom starts from 16:40.

I also came across a blog post that explained how it could be used in the classroom and its benefits.

Benefits

  1. It can help students visualize abstract concepts.
  2. It can help students connect classroom learning to their daily life.
  3. It can be used to learn about diversities in cities.

Integrating technology in the classroom is very beneficial and I plan to use most of the tools and platforms I have come across in EDTC300 in my future classroom.
