    What is Google Earth?
    Ways to Use Google Earth in the Classroom
    Classroom Examples
    Layers of Learning with Google Earth
    Tools and Layers
  • What is Google Earth?
    Google Earth is a satellite
    imagery-based mapping product and a 3D model of the entire planet that allows the user to grab, spin, and zoom down into any place on Earth, as well as, various locations throughout space and the ocean.
  • What are some special
    features of Google Earth?
    Use layers to study weather, seismic activity, etc...
    Demonstrate distance calculations.
    Google Sketch Up and Overlays
    Link video, audio, images and websites
    Use Discovery Streaming and Buildersand web 2.0 tools likeGlogster and Jing
    Create paths, polygons, and tours
    Explore the moon, Mars, sky and oceans
  • Why Use GE in the Classroom?
    To give teachers opportunities:
    To provide a sense of reality and purpose for learning within the K-12 classroom
    To engage and excite learners
    To help learners conceptualize, visualize, share, and communicate information about the world and science
    To provide cross-curricular learning options
    To create active, exploratory, and empowering learning environments
    To give students opportunities:
    to exhibit their learning to others
    to use emerging technologies and digital tools
    to communicate their research in a personally meaningful way (Web 2.0 )
    to view their world from a more connected, global perspective
    to enhance map reading and navigation skills
  • Examples of Google Earth in the Classroom
    Fifth graders used Discovery Streaming and Jing to build a collaborative Google Earth Tour. Each group of students were required to report “live” from a various regions (polar, temperate and tropical) across the world informing their audience about climate and weather.
    Students took notes throughout the process on details from their region, and used content from related video clips on Discovery Streaming.
    Students used their notes to create a narrative that would be used to report back to their audience via a Google Earth tour.
  • Examples of Google Earth in the Classroom
    First grades explore a virtual field trip in which students visit each continent to learn about different frogs. Through interactive activities, Discovery Streaming videos & assignments, and various Web 2.0 applications, the students are learning as they create and share products that demonstrate their knowledge on the frogs from each continent.
  • Google Earth and Discovery Student Adventures
  • Search, Places and Layers
    This is what the screen will
    like when you open up
    Google Earth.
    3D-Viewer
    There are three
    features to use in
    the toolbar to the left.
  • Three Ways to Fly
    1. Enter the location name
    - Spelling Counts
    - Do not use "The"
    - Examples to try
    a. Eiffel Tower
    b. Niagara Falls
    c. Statue of Liberty
    2. Paste in coordinates from
    Wikipedia or another source
    Eiffel Tower
    48° 51' 29" North, 2° 17' 40"
    3. Enter City, Country
    - Then try adding layers
    a. 3-D Building Warehouse
    b. Geographic Web
    c. Google Earth Community
  • Using the Places Feature/Build Tours
    The places feature will remember any place that you recently visited from your desktop. You can also save to my places.
    Organize, Save and Share
    Google Earth Files (KMZ,KML)
    Drag content into a logical sequence in a folder
    Right click on the folder
    Save as a KMZ file
  • Make a Folder
    • Right click on My Places
    • Add a folder
    • Name the folder
  • Explore, Search, and Discover
    Google Earth
    In the Earth Gallery you will find many tours, animations and sketch-ups created by people from around the world. Use the search engine or the links to the left to explore the Earth Gallery
  • Using the Layers Feature
    The Layers feature in Google Earth provides a variety of data points of geographic interest that you can select to display over your viewing area. This includes points of interest (POIs) as well as map, road, terrain, and building data.
    Some layers act as a folder that contain categories of data. These layers are indicated by a plus sign. Click on the plus sign to view the sub-categories for each layer.
  • Five Fun Layers Found by a
    Fourth Grader
    • National Geographic Ocean Atlas
    • State of the Ocean
    • Discovery Network
    • NASA
    • Gigapan Photos
  • The Tool Bar
    Record a
    Tour
    Add
    Polygons

    Landscape
    Add
    Image Overlay

    Moon
    Show
    Historical
    Imagery
    View in
    Google Maps
    Add
    Path
  • Adding a Placemark
    Click on the "Placemark" icon in the toolbar
    A flashing placemarker will appear. You can drag this to the location where you want to mark.
    Right click on the placemarker, a box will come up for you to write a description.
    You will want to give your placemarker a title. This is also where you would write in information for your students, questions, etc, link websites or embed code.
  • Adding a Polygon or Path
    Click on the "Polygon or Path" icon in the toolbar
    A flashing marker will appear. You can drag this from location to location to create a polygonal shape.
    Double click on the Polygon, a box will come up for you to write a description.
    Free-Form shape
    Click once, hold, and drag. The cursor changes to an up-arrow to indicate that you are using free-form mode. As you drag the cursor around the 3D viewer, the outline of the shape follows the path of your cursor. If you are drawing a path, a line appears as a result, and if you are drawing a polygon, a shape evolves from the path of your cursor, always connecting the beginning and ending points.
    Regular shape
    Click and release. Move the mouse to a new point and click to add additional points.
  • Adding Images
    Click "add image overlay“ and this box will appear.
    Give your picture a title.
    Then click on browse to locate any saved files in the computer.
    Below, you can add a description of your photo for your students. This is also a place where you can ask questions, prompt their thinking, or embed video or sound.
  • Adding Video
    1. Link videos from Discovery Streaming, or any other website.
    2. Embed video by pasting HTML code into your placemark's properties
  • Embedding Images in a Placemark
    Open up your web browser and find an image, copyright free of course (try using Creative Commons or, Flickr)
    Find the URL for the picture you would like to embed in t the Placemark. Copy the URL into the description section.
    Now we need to do a little HTML coding: Copy this code <imgsrc=“URL”>
    Go back and click on the placemark. You should see the image embedded in the placemark
  • Creating the “Floating Object”
    Screen Overlay
    Hall Davidson from the Discovery Educator Network shared this code on his blog. You can find his blog at Discoveryeducatornetwork.com ( media matters blog)
    Download the KTIADAM.kmz file from this wiki.
    Click the file to open it in Google Earth.
    It should save to your Temporary Places. Click on it and from
    file, select Save Places As. Save it as a KML, NOT KMZ.
    Open a Word document and then open the KTIADAM.kml file.
    Replace file name KTI Adam with your file name
    Replace href with the URL for your picture
    Save the file. You will get warning messages. (Ignore them)
    Find the file. Click on it (don’t launch it.) Rename it.
    Change the extension to .kmz. Open it in Google Earth.
