  2. 2. Objectives Use of ICT in inquiry classroom Use of multidisciplinary approach in ICT based inquiry Classroom. Why use Google Earth in the class room. How to Use Google Earth in the class room
  3. 3. Introduction of G gle Earth• Google Earth is free, downloadable software that can be used for, what it was earlier believed, the impossible explorations of our planet.• It is an easy-to-navigate satellite views of the entire Earth over- layered with pictures, facts, and even YouTube videos and Wikipedia articles.• Because it is so easy to use, it sparks an innate curiosity about the world in which we live—users can even view their own homes and neighbourhoods from an aerial perspective.
  4. 4. Why Teach with (GE) presents a great deal of information in a geographic context is easy to install and use is an excellent venue for inquiry-based activities is appropriate for educational use in a wide range of subject areas is an effective tool integrating the study of multiple disciplines is a great research tool has a large active user community with a public discussion forum is pre-loaded with a wide variety useful data enables users to create and display their own data

  6. 6. Tools of (GE) Search  Historical Imagery Places  Atmosphere Layers  Scale Legend Flight Stimulator  Over view Map Ruler  Sun Grids( Altitude/Latitude)  Explore (Sky, Moon, Mars) Recording  Tilt and Compass Day &Night Formation
  7. 7. ‘FLY To’ In this search option you enter the name of place e.g “Taj Mahal” and click on search. This will take them to the right location.
  8. 8. Places Using this menu you can fly in different places of the world. You can make your own tours also. Tour to Italy (V enice C ity ).kmz

  10. 10. Grids on the Earth
  11. 11. Day Night Formation
  12. 12. Tilt you can see elevation changes on the Earths surface. This feature is an extremely fun aspect of Google Earth, particularly when you are viewing hilly and mountainous terrain.
  13. 13. Ruler The ruler tool allow us to measure distances of real world objects without leaving their classroom. You can measure the distance around an object, between point A to Point B or find diameter and radius.
  14. 14. Historical Imagery Travel back in time with Historical hist imagery .kmz Imagery in Google Earth. View your neighborhood, home town, and other familiar places to see how they changed.
