Google Earth allows students to see the world beyond just what they have been able to witness already.
Google Earth is an amazing site that can be extremely beneficial within the classroom. For example, if there is a lesson on different cultures around the world, a teacher would be able to show their students what life looks like in that location. It also allows a student to understand just how diverse the world is and how big it is. Traveling is an amazing experience that not all children are able to experience, therefore Google Earth can show them just exactly what it is like to travel.
How I Use It
I have used Google Earth a number of times in a classroom setting. Specifically, I can remember during my Spanish elementary school class, we used Google Earth to look at locations that we were talking about in class.
