Week 5 PLE Post

So, the coolest thing about Google Earth is that I can just zoom right in on the area where I served my mission and actually see specific buildings! That is incredible! Another nifty gadget on this program is the option to measure the distance between any two points with just a couple of clicks. You can be taken instantly to any specific landmark or city in the world by just typing it in. Then you can observe the place from a myriad of angles. It's really a fascinating technology and as we have already discussed in class, it is perfect for making a virtual field-trip for the students. It could also be used to show students fun places you have traveled.
