Google's Open Course Builder: A Giant Leap into 21st Century Online Learning

Google's Open Course Builder: A Giant Leap into 21st Century Online Learning | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
"Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." -- About Google

Google is the most powerful nonhuman teacher ever known to actual humans. Implicitly and ceaselessly, Google performs formative assessments by collecting the following data: the content, genre and media that interests you most; when and for how long you access your external cloud brain; what your hobbies and routines are; with whom you work and communicate; who will get your November vote; and whether you prefer invigorating clean mint or enamel renewal toothpaste. By continuously refining the nuance of your sociogram, Google has already customized your next web exploration and taught itself to teach.

Real World Math

Real World Math | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it

"Real World Math: Using Google Earth in the Math Curriculum."   Back to my interdisciplinary approach to strengthening geographic education, image hearing that there is a Math teacher at your school using this, wouldn't you want to be a part of it?  Too often knowledge is taught within disciplinary silos; students need opportunities to make real world connections between the disciplines to breath life into how they are taught.  This site reminds me of http://www.googlelittrips.org/ which allows real world geography to be a part of literature/English classes.

Google Fusion Tables can assist many professionals with pinpoint certain areas on the map. It can help city planners build structures within the city in a safe and efficient way. It can pinpoint areas that are most affected by disaster such as hurricanes and wildfires. It can be visually appealing for an average person trying to read the map.
GIS student's comment, November 3, 2011 4:32 PM
I feel that this an excellent way to understand GIS represented data to those who are not as familiar with GIS systems. It also appears to be a quick and useful tool to any member of society that needs to demonstrate any sort of representational data.

I don't know what I'm doing but I did this is relating to the numbers of building permits of 2010 for the city of Austin. It includes location and progress of the city.

Google Earth's Timeline, if you haven't discovered that feature will allow you to compare and contrast imagery from an area from the present 2010/11 to 1993-1995 images.  Click the 'clock' button and a timeline that you can slide to the past appears.  Nice historical possibilities with this option.

Many geography teachers bemoan the state of geography in education and I understand that frustration for more explicitly ‘geography’ courses; I also see this type of interdisciplinary activity as way to create a geography that is a part of all classrooms.  So talk to an English teacher about a collaborative project–it just might get you somewhere.

Google Earth is an amazing way to teach children of all ages (and adults for that matter) about the geography of the Earth. It is such an abstract way of conveying geographic concepts. What an amazing teaching tool....and as an added bonus, it's FREE!!
