Magoogle, You've Done It Again!

If seeing is believing, Google Earth has provided an amazing pair of eye opening lenses to improve our view of the world.

According to Al Gore who won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work raising awareness about climate change:

“This is an extremely powerful educational tool,” “One of my fondest hopes is that people around the world will use Google Earth to see for themselves the reality of what’s happening because of the climate crisis.”

One cautionary note for educators, don't download applications to your network unless you intend to use them! Ask any IT professional and they will tell you that band width is a scarce resource that must be conserved to ensure an adequate return on our educational investment.
