Using Google Earth and Blogs for an international link

The Hampshire / Western Cape is gathering momentum which is great. I’ve put together a short Google Earth tour of our recent Year 10 coastal field trip. The tour is basic at the moment but I think the potential for using GE in enabling international (and national) links between schools is huge. I’m going to aim to create a tour showing the local area around our school and the main geographical issues that our students care about.

One barrier to using this technology is training. I hope that I will be able to train staff in all partner schools. This would enable us to communicate via GE as well as sharing information on the local area.
