How I Use It
I would use the photo spheres to help students understand the physical geography of a location. I would display selected 360° views with a projector as part of a discussion to understand the characteristics of a specific place. It will become part of an amazing tool for students to explore their neighborhood and the world beyond.
My Take
I highly value the use of great photographs to help students understand the diversity of geography. The current collections are very limited. I was glad to read that this resource is going to become part of Google Maps.
