How I Use It
If I am talking about a region I show it with Google Earth. This app allows student to understand the geography of different places. When talking about the Vietnam war students can see how far away from home Vietnam actually is.
My Take
If you teach a history class you need to use Google Earth. This app allows students to understand the geography and architecture of different regions. Google Earth allows you to take students on field trips that you would never be able to afford.
