Explore Google Earth from anywhere. Whether you're on your computer, mobile phone, tablet or browsing the web — there is a version of Google Earth for you.
Google Earth 6 is available for the desktop in three different versions: Google Earth, Google Earth Pro, and Google Earth Enterprise. Fly anywhere to see satellite imagery, 3D buildings, 3D trees, terrain, Street View, planets and much more.
Use the Google Earth plug-in to explore a 3D globe with Earth view in Google Maps and on sites across the web.
Explore the globe from the palm of your hand. Download Google Earth for Android, iPhone, or iPad.
It's strength is in its accuracy. It's weakness is its frequent overloading that can cause images to be blurry even from a panned out view.

In another example, a language arts teacher might want to develop students writing ability. The teacher could use a Google Earth source (visual) in conjunction with a verbal prompt to spark her students' creative juices. Here the teacher uses a visual and verbal strategy to facilitate student learning.

Although this program is a bit difficult to use at first and does occasionally lock up computers (requiring re-starts), it is worth the effort!

Google Earth is a very important tool, it easy to operate I usually search on website zoom in dragging to place i want as my learners watch I explain what they need to know and it is really very interesting. It is a very important tool that every educator should for effective teaching.
I can use this tool to show my students various locations around the world in relation to themselves. For example, as a teacher in South Korea, my students are not usually familiar with Western countries. This tool makes it easy for them to explore various places that we read about or discuss in the classroom.
I would recommend this tool for those teaching any subject in which a student must learn about a new country or city.

The tool also highlights different cultures and religions. It may be worth asking students to tell you where their relatives live and exploring different cultures in this way. Different famous buildings, religious buildings and tourist destinations can also be seen.
Practically, if you have an interview, meeting, holiday or a new job then check the location on here. It shows you a street view that can really help you to find the place you are searching for when you travel.

There are only advantages to using Google Earth in the classroom. I would highly recommend it.

Nonostante alcune differenze nella risoluzione, non sempre omogenea, il programma è molto buono. Senza dubbio permette di soddisfare curiosità su luoghi mai visti, oppure ci consente di ricordare con grande realismo luoghi che si sono visitati, magari solo come turisti, per un breve periodo. In ogni caso gli usi di Goohle Earth sono vastissimi; qualcuno lo sfrutta per indagini archeologiche dall'alto, altri per studiare l'ambiente o imparare la geografia...
Questo software è stato concepito molto bene sul piano della navigabilità delle immagini ma presenta un punto debole: le immagini riprodotte non sono sempre aggiornate. La tutela della privacy non permette infatti di caricare foto scattate troppo di recente.
Molto utile anche il correttore lessicale, che permette di trovare i luoghi che non hanno una semplice grafia oppure se si sbaglia a digitarne il nome.
How do you use this tool?
