Combining educational content with technology like the Google Earth API gave an opportunity to foster a new and immersive experience that changes the way students see the world.
Enter, "StrataLogica--combined with Earth API--provides students with powerful tools to visualize and comprehend the ways in which geography has impacted events, politics and populations throughout human history. Students have the ability to see current events, taking place around the world, from their classroom."
"They can "fly" to any location in a matter of seconds, zoom in to imagery and see street views of historical sites that they may never have an opportunity to visit, embed videos and photos, and experience their own virtual field trips," blogged Natasha Wyatt, Google Earth and Maps Enterprise Team today on Enterprise blog.
Using a computer or interactive whiteboard, students uncover layers of educational content and can then drill down to Google Earth’s satellite imagery, see what’s actually there, and even use historical imagery to compare then and now.
