How I Use It
Students use it as the tool of choice for locating a place in the world. They also use the small Wikipedia entries to gather information for further study or research.
If you want to find somewhere in the world, Google Earth makes it easy. Search, zoom, and even find a photo depending on the location. The Google Earth app will provide latitude, longitude, and elevation. Great tool for students to explore places from content, but can be distracting when numerous photos are available for a locale.
