Google Earth lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean. You can explore rich geographical content, save your toured places, and share with others.
Google Earth is a fantastic e-learning tool. I have been using it personally for nearly 2 years now and am always fascinated by what it can do. When my daughter moved over seas, to London, I downloaded Google Earth to get a pictuere of where she was. Not only did I get an idea where she was, I was blown away to see her apartment, front courtyard, sidewalk and road on the screen. You can imagine my excitment. Being able to use a tool that would enable me to see where my daughter lived, on the other side of the world, gave me a sense of relief.
I can see that Google Earth would be of great benefit to classrooms when conducting any lesson in any KLA. For example you can incorporate it into a science lesson by asking the students to discover the Moon.
