I had a great time with the team at the Google Geo Institute earlier this week. We primarily covered Google Earth and Google SketchUp but both of these applications are so rich with function, there was plenty to play with!
We also had the opportunity to meet Toby Lester the author of the book The Fourth Part of the World and see one of National Geographics giant travelling maps. Very cool! You can borrow the map for your own school for kids to check out and they come with a binder of activities and information.
