My Take

Google Earth allows teachers and students to travel on in-class field trips to places that would otherwise be impossible. The students loved being to zoom to locations and I thought it was a great tool to allow them to see locations in relationship to those places around them.

How I Use It

We examined crime statistics, scouted the area, and then looked at the surrounding areas to theorize as to why those stats might exist. The students then had to problem-solve and design solutions that might be utilized to lower the crime rates.
