How to Teach With Google Earth - 1 views

  •  
    "Google Earth offers the means to display geographic data from a wide variety of sources together in a geospatial context. This data includes imagery for the entire globe at varying resolutions that contains a great deal of interpretable visual information. Students can use it to find their homes, schools, and other locations that are familiar to them. They can make inferences by comparing familiar places to other locations. In addition, students can learn about the world through rich layers of mappable data offered by Google's server and a great deal of third-party content. They can also create and display their own data. "

    Technology is an integral and growing part of daily living in the twenty-first century. The challenge, then, for teachers, is to use technology effectively in classrooms to help students take ownership for learning and develop the practical and critical thinking skills necessary to better understand the world around them. To meet this challenge, teachers can use an emerging technology tool, GPS receivers, and an emerging GPS-based activity, geocaching, to transform their classrooms from teacher-centered environments to exciting, empowering, exploratory environments that focus on student engagement in the learning process.

Visual Field Trips - Webcam Feeds for Classroom Viewing | webcams, virtual field trips,... - 0 views

  •  
    Yes, today's post is another freebie for teachers featuring webcam feeds you could be incorporating into your classroom. Consider these as teleportation devices to many of the world's greatest landmarks, national parks, and historical significance. In addition they are virtual eyes that allow students to study animal behavior patterns and habitats. Possibly they could be regarded as voyeuristic tools where students can ride along with a big rig truck driver or observe the physics of skateboard parks. The choices are vast, but they do bring a bit of the outside world into the walls of your classroom.
