How I Use It
I have used Google Earth in multiple applications. By adding overlays from the Google community it is easy to examine GIS information. The NASA overlays of the world at night combined with an overlay of world population makes a significant impact on how students view development in the world. This app also allows for easy comparison of Historical events,.
My Take
First and foremost this product is free, and easy to install. It can be used across many different platforms. This allows for students to access it from their phones, computers or tablets. Because of this the digital gap is easier to close.
