How I Use It
I use my iPad on my projector and show various parts of the United States. It really helps all students get a feel for geography, as we can zoom and travel to different places. They get more out of it than a standard map.
My Take
I work in a low-income district and Google Earth allows me to show my students parts of the world that they would not otherwise be able to see.
