Teaching with Google Earth

This web portal is a one-stop shop for high school and college educators interested in learning about and working with Google Earth. Created by Glenn Richard of the Mineral Physics Institute at Stony Brook (N.Y.) University—and housed online by the Science Education Resource Center Pedagogic Service at Carleton College (Minn.)—the portal provides access to a wide range of materials such as articles with basic information about Google Earth (e.g., What Is Google Earth?, Why Teach with Google Earth?), practical user guides (e.g., Google Earth Tip Sheet, Working With Keyhole Markup Language), and links for further learning. Teachers can also access ready-to-use classroom/field activities (e.g., Environmental Reconnaissance of a Salt Marsh, Renewable Energy) using Google Earth and share their own Google Earth activities online.
