  1. 1. Google SketchUp<br />By Andrew Barletta<br />
  2. 2. Summary<br />This conference is all about the free Google tool Google SketchUp. This is a fun and very creative tool that allows anyone to make 3-D opjects. The presentation focused on basic uses and how to integrate into a curriculum.<br />The big factor was his quote “make the technology engaging and empowering.” <br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Questions<br />How long in the play aspect of learning the program compared to getting into making something?<br />Is the overall design of the building really going to show the student an understanding of geometry and building methods?<br />
  5. 5. Personal Development<br />I see this a as a great tool to really have the students create and not just learn. The ability of students to make something that has true dimensions and show understanding is a wonderful tool. <br />
  6. 6. Lessons<br />With my 8th graders we have our Dream House of the Gods project. A Greek mythology study project. With this program they could bring that house to life in 3-D. With my 4th graders we could design colonial homes and then later pioneer home and look at building methods. With my 7th graders we do our 60 Cities project and I can see them recreating a monument from the cities. <br />
