Students give advice on teaching with Google Earth

Chris Erlien (Thompson Writing Program) teaches “Google Earth’s Impact” in her Writing 20 classes. Students researched and wrote about Google Earth throughout the semester. 

Now, you can read their ideas about teaching and learning with Google Earth. Each student wrote an enthusiastic blog post with suggestions for using Google Earth in college classes. The blog, “Teaching (and Learning) with Google Earth” includes lesson plans and information about layers so the site will be useful for instructors at any level. 

We will repost some of the student suggestions here in coming weeks. Check out their blog for many suggestions and ideas!
