During the ISTE conference at the end of June Google announced that Google Earth can now be added into your G Suite for Education domain. This means that your students can use their G Suite account credentials to use the web version of Google Earth. The web version of Google Earth can be used on a Chromebook.
When most teachers hear “Google Earth” they think that it’s only a tool for social studies classrooms. It can also be used well in science, language arts, and math classes. In the PDF embedded below I outline ten ways to use Google Earth in school. (Click here if you cannot see the PDF).
In the following video I provide an overview of the web version of Google Earth.
