One of the basic things one can do in Google earth is look at specific locations using the "fly to" bar. Locations often have pictures or videos associated with them in the program. These things can be used in the classroom to teach students more about the world. This program is interactive, so students can get involved. They can suggest places they want to see, or perhaps the class can go exploring using one of the many navigation tools provided in the program. It seems like a great program for kids in class or just for general use.
