This is the link to my Google Earth tour on my wiki.
I watched Ali's, Rebecca's, and Victoria's Google Earth tours.
I don't know how often I'll actually use Google Earth tours in my classroom. It took a lot of time to create that tour, and I feel like I could prepare a more informative lesson in less time. Also, I felt like sometimes Google Earth ran really slowly, or every now and then wouldn't let me click on things. This could get really annoying, especially when I can't control the quality of the internet connection I use. However, I may use Google Earth during a lesson (without a pre-made tour) so that students can better see where places are and how they relate to other subjects. It would be nice to be able to have a projector and use Google Earth during a geography lesson or something. I think kids would love to see the Earth spin and zoom in and out.
