Google Earth Education Community

The Google Earth Education Community is a webportal where educators and students from the elementary level to university level can share and find information about educational topics that have been organized using Google Earth software.

It provides a collection of placesets that have been created by Google Earth users that may be useful in an academic setting, providing many resources and ideas for lessons.

The literature section offers a great idea for using Google Earth to create maps of places in famous fiction literature. The sample given suggests using Google Earth to create tours of places mentioned in Shakespeare's writings and the places Shakespeare visited. Alternatively, users can follow Jack Kerouac "On the Road". Other categories include Arts, Science and History revealing the potential of Google Earth in lessons about "Seven Ancient Wonders", "Cezanne" or "Earthquake Monitoring".
