  • Design the Tech Wave…Then Ride It: Google SketchUp. Good morning and thanks for joining me today. My name Ryan Evans and I’m a technology teacher with the Wanaque School system. For the next hour or so we’re going to discover how to use Google SketchUp in the classroom.
  • Google SketchUp is software that users can use to create 3D models of anything they wish.
  • SketchUp can be an effective tool in the classroom because it:Easily teaches kids to construct 3D models of building, tress, cars and most anything elseIt can be used in conjunctuon with Google Earth and the 3D warehouseIt is hands-on approach to understanding area and volumeIt can be applied to a variety of subject areasIt allows users to visualize geometry and other mathematical conceptsUsers can create models to learn about architecture, and design many other objectsIt can be used to participate community development projectsIt’s FunIt’s Free
  • Just a few thoughts on how SketchUp can be used in other subject areas. In art students can create models of architectureIn geography classes, students can design structures and input them into Google Earth or even design landformsLanguage Arts students can use it with Google Lit Trips by designing architecture, structures, and other objects of literary works that are been read.Math scholars can use creations to study, area, perimeter, volume, measurements, and more. A science thought maybe to create a DNA helixAnd in social studies or history, students can design and or recreate historical landmarks or redesign community buildings.

    • 2. What’s SketchUp?
      Google SketchUp is software that you can use to create 3D models of anything you like.
      Google: http://sketchup.google.com/product/gsu.html
    • 3. Why SketchUp?
      Easily teach kids to construct 3D models of buildings, trees, cars, Plus…
      Can be used in conjunction with Google Earth and the 3D Warehouse
      Hands-on approach to understanding area and volume via studying building and community design
      Apply to multiple subject areas
      Visualize geometry and other mathematical concepts
      Create models to learn about architecture, and design everything from games and toys to models of spaceships and cars.
      Use it to participate in community development projects that involve CAD (Computer Aided Design), GIS (Geographical Information System), or other design applications.
      Kids are learning while having fun
      FREE
