Google Earth (and Maps) should be a tool available to students as part of their enquiry-based learning toolkit. The Google Earth (and Maps) skills necessary for students to engage in meaningful learning experiences should be taught as part of a continuum within a school's curriculum. This session will outline how Google Earth skills can be incorporated into the school curriculum and not just the Geography one! This will lead to the discussion of real, tested, classroom examples of building a continuum of skill development leading towards a project planning the first commercial (1937) passenger flight from Southampton (UK) to Cape Town (South Africa) which happened to be on a boat-plane!
