SAGT Presentation Slides 25-28


Quentin D'Souza over at TEACHING HACKS, has produced a useful video introduction to using GOOGLE EARTH in the classroom.

http://www.eyespot.com/ is a new site allowing you to edit video online - could make little Google Earth movies of placemarks that have been located, or for starters to lessons...

Recommend you get yourself a weblog.
I started the GeoBlogs project in 2003, and people are finally catching on to the fact that they are a great way to communicate with students...


Some good examples of weblogs:

Here's one of my better ideas of recent weeks: marking homeworks and setting homeworks in the form of Google Earth KML files...
Could also include geo-tagged images using Picasa web albums (more on this later...)

I love this idea of setting homework and then marking it with Google Earth!

Good isn't it. It has potential for sharing and for building up a bank of potential questions and linking them to the place / case study - good for exemplification for higher and advanced higher students or AS / A2 students south of the border..
Anyone created some more ? Happy to host them on GeographyPages...
