EarthTeaching With Google Earth: Resources

While the intent of this course is to expand your skill to be part of competent and creative instructional community, there's absolutely nothing wrong with adopting some well designed ideas or projects from like minded educators. This page attempts to provide links to resources and projects from many different disciplines. Many of these can be used right out of the can, but if they don't suit your instructional needs, you now have the skills to modify content and make it your own.
