'Back to School: Google Earth for Teachers

screen shot of new content in GEFT

Back in May I released an 'open course' devoted to helping Geography school teachers use Google Earth as a GIS in their teaching: Google Earth for Teachers (GEFT).  The 'core' content was 6 up to date videos.  Following feedback from teachers using it over the summer I've made some changes:
  • It now has its own domain 'GEforTeachers.com' (update 5th Nov 2013: which redirects you to a Moodle site)
  • You no longer have to register to access, just choose 'guest' middle of the way down on the left at the entry page.
  • I've added an 'Advanced' section with tools and tutorials for those who are beyond introductory level.
I'd love to hear what you think of it!
