Using Google Earth in the classroom

There are many educational uses for Google Earth and we’ve seen great uses of it from Duke University and StrataLogica, among others.

Now there is a site,  GEteach, developed by 9th-grade Geography teacher Josh Williams. The site uses the Google Earth Plug-in to give you quick access to a wide variety of information such as the CIA Factbook, population densities, and various other human and physical geographic overlays with a “Two Earth” mode, allowing you to view different layers side-by-side.
