In reviewing Terry-Freedman's ICT site today, I found a posting entitled:
Storybook Settings by Satellite: Google Earth for Language Arts & Reading ClassBy Mechelle M. De CraeneCreated on Fri, 19 Jan 2007, 00:07
This is from a chapter of the soon to be released Coming of Age 2 compilation of new practices in education. I have mentioned and distributed the first Coming of Age to many of you during the last year. It is one of my favorite books and its free! Totally online with articles on using Web 2.0 in the classroom from some of the most noted technology integrators today.
Mechelle explains how to use Google Earth to bring reading and language to life through geography. If you are a teacher in MSAD#52, you have Google Earth installed on your laptop and on your student computers. Check out Mechelle's ideas and let us know how it goes.
