All I can say is wow! I talked in class with a couple of you about how the newest version of Google Earth had 3-D capabilities. The program to draw 3-D objects is called SketchUp. Today I really started looking at it. It seems like you could draw just about any building or object, and make whatever you are drawing an exact size easily. I can’t believe that this software is free.
There are also some great SketchUp Tutorial videos.
I’m going to see if we can get Google Earth and SketchUp installed on the laptops and really start using it during homework club. Maybe we could make all of Sine Elementary in SketchUp and share it on the Google Earth Community. I need to go buy some tape measures.
They even have weekly SketchUp Challenges. Go there and check out some pictures of what can be created.
I hope everyone is having a good break. See you on Monday. I think from the things I’ve learned this week we’ll have some changes in class.
