Google Earth
Intended for an audience of casual but computer literate
consumers, Google Earth is within the skill level of most
secondary education students.
It allows one to move through two and three dimensional maps
of virtually anywhere on Earth, as well as some areas of space.
Google Earth also includes a street view feature, which allows
for virtual, highly detailed tours.
Use of Google Earth aligns with the ISTE NETS standard of

research tool. Its accessibility also allows it to be an effective
means of sharing acquired knowledge with others.

Sketchup
As an application which requires a fair amount of computer knowledge as well as
some instruction, Sketchup is most suitable for students of at least eight grade.
The program involves the creation of two and three dimensional models through
the use of various tools, as well as importation of already created sample models
from a virtual store. Models can either be created based on visual estimations of
measurements, or with measuring tools to create exact dimensions. It is an
effective tool for teaching measurement and scale. It encourages creativity and
many students find it highly enjoyable to use, making use of the program an
effective incentive to be attentive to directions from an instructor.
Use of Skeptchup aligns with the ISTE NETS standard of being an innovative
designer, as it is by definition a design program, which requires one to acquire a
knowledge of the tools within it.

use of flashcards to make it more fun and keep the young students more
interested in the app.
