    Google Earth
    has been a part of our educational toolkit for a few years now. But how often do we pull it out? And what are some of the new features that it can offer us? This session will explore some new and innovative ways to incorporate this tool into your school.

    Use the top section for adjusting the features of tours from folders of placemarks.
    Here you can adjust movement settings for tours along a line as well (see below for lines)

    Another way to tour is to lay down a line using the line tool {LineTool.png} Just like placemarks, you will have a line preferences/options window open.
    With the preferences/options window open you can click on the map to create a series of connectedpoints.

    The camera will stay connected to the line on a string at the height you select. To view further in front of you set the camera tilt angle closer to 90 degrees. This adjustment can be found on the TOURING tab of the Preference/Options menu (see above).

    Student Created Tours
    By this point I hope that you see how simple it is to create a collection of placemarks in Google Earth. In fact it is so simple that your students can do it on their own.
    Putting the student in the drive seat of any technology empowers them to take ownership of their learning and rais the bar on the level of their work.
    One interesting idea in this arena is to have students create a habitat map. They could create a local one of the area around where you live or a global tour that can be tied into some of the layers selections.
    Or students may tie their Black History Projects into placemarks to create a more complete sense of space and reality.
    Recently a teacher at our school had 3rd grade students creating Glogs for Black History Month. Why not have them include place marks of relevant locations and embed their projects in the descriptions.
