Google Earth is a very versatile program that educators often associate only with social studies. Google Earth can actually be used in literature, mathematics, and science lessons too. On November 2, 2012 Jerome Burg and Thomas Petra will host a Google+ Hangout all about using Google Earth in education. Jerome Burg is the creator of the excellent Google Lit Trips site and Thomas Petra is the creator of the fantastic Real World Math site.
Applications for Education
In many of my presentations I talk about finding your own PD opportunities that are meaningful to you. This Google+ Hangout on November 2 is an example of informal PD that can be meaningful to teachers who are interested in learning more about how to use Google Earth in their lessons.
