Google Earth - Curriculum Development Workshop


Uploaded by pcclancer on 06.01.2011

Transcript:

- THESE WORKSHOPS ARE BEING PUT ON
BY THE PCC DIGITAL MEDIA CENTER,
AND THEY'RE FUNDED BY A CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT GRANT
FROM THE WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT AGENCY IN SACRAMENTO.
ALLWE'RE BEING VIDEOTAPED TONIGHT
AND THIS TAPE WILL BE UP ON THE DIGITAL MEDIA CENTER SITE
IN A FEW WEEKS,
SO BEST STUFF FROM ALL THE WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE
FOR EVERYONE TO LOOK AT UP ON THE SITE.
TONIGHT IS GOOGLE EARTH,
AND WE'RE REALLY, REALLY FORTUNATE TO HAVE
A FANTASTIC PRESENTER TONIGHT KEN SHELTON,
WHO'S TONIGHT'S PRESENTER.

KEN IS A MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER.
- AWW. - YEAH.
- [LAUGHTER]
- IT'S OK, THOUGH. - AND A MALE MODEL,
WHICH I JUST FOUND OUT TONIGHT.
- AWW.
- THANK YOU. - [LAUGHTER]
- [INDISTINCT]
HE CAME AND PRESENTED FOR US AT MOBILE ED
AND IT WAS JUST A KNOCKOUT WORKSHOP,
SO WE WANTED TO GET HIM BACK
AND DO THINGS A LITTLE BIT MORE IN DEPTH A LITTLE BIT MORE.
SO WE'RE JUST WAITING FOR
THE LATEST VERSION OF GOOGLE EARTH
TO DISTRIBUTE ITSELF AROUND THE COMPUTERS,
AND [INDISTINCT]
- THEN WE'LL GET STARTED. YEAH. IF YOU GUYS WANT...
- DOES THAT MEAN [INDISTINCT] CLOSE IT?
- UM... - PROBABLY WILL HAVE TO CLOSE IT,
BUT I WOULDN'T WORRY ABOUT IT AT THE MOMENT.
BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO IS LAUNCH YOUR BROWSER.
EXCELLENT. THANK YOU.
EVERYTHING THAT WE'RE GONNA COVER IS POSTED ONLINE.
I'M A BIG BELIEVER IN BEING PAPERLESS,
BECAUSE WE ALWAYS GET PAPER AND SOMETIMES IT GETS LOST, SO
IT'S ALL POSTED ONLINE AND IT WILL BE POSTED IN PERPETUITY
UNLESS THE INTERNET GOES AWAY.
- [LAUGHTER]
- NOT LIKELY TO HAPPEN. IN FACT, THERE'S A QUOTE.
I DO A LOT OF GOOGLE WORKSHOPS, SO IT'S NOT JUST GOOGLE EARTH.
IN FACT, IT DOES THE GOOGLE WORKSHOPS I DO
AREN'T EVEN INCLUSIVE OF GOOGLE EARTH.
THEY ARE GOOGLE SEARCH, GOOGLE DOCS, MAP SITES,
AND THEN A BUNCH OF OTHER THINGS, BUT
ONE OF THE FUNNY THINGS THAT I DO WHEN I DO
THE WELCOME SEGMENT OF MY GOOGLE WORKSHOP FOR EDUCATORS
IS I ALWAYS INCLUDE THE QUOTE.
I FORGOT THE GUY THAT SAID IT, BUT IT WAS IN 1994,
WHEN HE SAID THAT THE INTERNET IS JUST THIS FADDISH THING
THAT'S GONNA GO AWAY AND IT'S NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL, SO
HERE WE ARE.
BUT AT ANY RATE, IT IS HERE...

SO IT'S A GOOGLE SITE. IS IT POSSIBLE TO

PERFECT. SORRY I DIDN'T PUT A TRUNCATED URL FOR YOU,
BUT IT'S SITES.GOOGLE.COM/SITE/EARTHINEDUCATION.
SITES.GOOGLE.COM HERE, LET ME [INDISTINCT]

I'LL DO THIS TO MAKE IT EASIER [INDISTINCT]

THERE. THAT'S THE URL.

AND SO THAT'LL HAVE THAT HAS OUR OUTLINE FOR THIS EVENING,
WHICH I'M GOING TO BE AMBITIOUS
THAT WE WILL GET THROUGH EVERYTHING,
BUT MY GOAL WITH YOU GUYS, MORE IMPORTANTLY,
IS TO NOT ONLY SHARE WITH YOU GOOGLE EARTH
AS AN APPLICATION FROM A USER STANDPOINT
BUT HOW IT APPLIES PEDAGOGICALLY
ACROSS A VARIETY OF CURRICULAR AREAS,
AND THEN I WILL SHARE WITH YOU GUYS WAYS IN WHICH
I USE GOOGLE EARTH WITH MY STUDENTS
AS WELL AS WITH SOME OF THE CLASSES
WHEN I WAS IN GRADUATE SCHOOL THAT THE PROFESSORS THAT I HAD
THAT ALLOWED ME TO SHARE THAT WITH MY CLASSMATES,
AND THEN MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHICH IS
I'M A FIRM BELIEVER IN HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS,
AS YOU GUYS WILL CREATE SOME OF YOUR OWN CONTENT
SO THAT YOU CAN GO THROUGH THAT PROCESS
AND THEN HOPEFULLY AFTER TODAY, YOU KNOW, TOMORROW YOU CAN SAY,
"OH, YOU KNOW WHAT? WHAT I DID WITH KEN,
"I KNOW EXACTLY HOW I CAN EITHER
"INCORPORATE THAT INTO MY CURRICULAR AREA
"OR HAVE MY STUDENTS DO IT AS FAR AS ACCOMPLISHING
"DIFFERENT PROJECTS AND WHAT HAVE YOU."
SO I NEED A POLL. HOW MANY OF YOU
OK, SO IS IT SAFE TO SAY EVERYONE HERE
IS EVERYONE HERE, FACULTY HERE?
- NO. - NO.
IS ANYONE HERE FACULTY HERE?
OK, [INDISTINCT]
THE REST OF YOU EVERYONE HERE IS IN HIGHER ED, AM I CORRECT?
- NO. - NO.
- STUDENT. - OK.
- COUPLE OF STUDENTS.
- COUPLE OF STUDENTS. OK.
SO HOW MANY OF YOUOK, SO LET ME REPHRASE MY QUESTION.
- [LAUGHTER]
- THEY'RE ALL SUPPOSED TO BE IN HIGHER ED, KEN.
- OK. - [LAUGHTER]
- HOW MANY OF YOU, YOUR CURRICULAR AREA THERE
IS ENGLISH OR LANGUAGE ARTS?
NOBODY. MATHEMATICS?

SCIENCE? FUN?
- [LAUGHTER] - YAY!
- OK, THEN YOU GUYS JUST THROW OUT ANSWERS, OR TELL ME.
- ART? - ART.
- ART. - ART? OK, AND ART
FROM A CREATION OR AN ART HISTORY STANDPOINT, OR BOTH?
- CREATION.
- CREATION. OK, SO WE'RE ALL ARTISTS IN HERE.
OK. AND IS IT IN A VARIETY OF MEDIUMS?
SO IN OTHER WORDS, LIKE, I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.
I TEACH GRAPHIC DESIGN TO MY MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS.
WE DO USE GOOGLE EARTH EXTENSIVELY,
BUT I ALSO USE, LIKE, GOOGLE SKETCHUP WITH THEM,
SO, YOU KNOW, THERE'S SOME ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
AND THEN THERE'S I TEACH THEM COLOR THEORY
AND WE USE PHOTOSHOP, ILLUSTRATOR, AND FIREWORKS EXTENSIVELY.
NOT A WHOLE LOT OF WEB DESIGN CONTENT,
JUST BECAUSE A LOT OF MY STUDENTS
EITHER ALREADY KNOW HTML VERY WELL
OR THEY KNOW HOW TO DOWNLOAD A WORDPRESS THEME
AND THEN JUST MODIFY THE CSS.
- MIDDLE SCHOOL? - I'M SORRY?
- MIDDLE SCHOOL? - YES.
- [LAUGHTER]
- WELL, I MEAN, LOOK, THEY'RE CUTTING ART OUT OF EVERYTHING ELSE,
SO I MIGHT AS WELL, YOU KNOW BUT I WOULD SAY YES.
SO AS FAR AS MY CONTENT OR MY CURRICULAR AREA,
THE FOCUS POINT, WHICH I'M GLAD MOST OF YOU ARE ARTISTS
I CALL IT CREATIVE EXPRESSION,
BECAUSE WE DO A LOT OF PHOTOGRAPHY,
A LOT OF FILMING, AND THEN GRAPHIC DESIGN STUFF.
SO...SO THEN THE COOL THING WITH YOU GUYS
IS THAT I WILL TAKE YOU GUYS THROUGH
A LOT OF THE STUFF I DO WITH MY STUDENTS.
ANYONE HERE FAMILIAR WITH GOOGLE SKETCHUP OR
- YEAH.

- [INDISTINCT]
- SKETCHUP. EXCELLENT. - HA HA!
- YOU GUYS HAVE SKETCHUP PRO LICENSE?
OK. EDUCATORS GET IT FREE.
YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH A THIRD PARTY VENDOR,
BUT LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE, I'VE GOTTEN IT FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS NOW.
ACADEMIC SUPERSTORE IS AN EASY ONE.
YOU JUST APPLY FOR IT, SHOW PROOF OF EDUCATOR OR STUDENT STATUS,
[SNAPS FINGERS] GET IT RIGHT AWAY.

ARE WE GOOD TO GO?
- [INDISTINCT]
THE WEB PLUG-IN IS THE ONLY [INDISTINCT]
- [INDISTINCT] SO IF EVERYONE STARTED,
DO THEY NEED TO QUIT AND
- YEAH, THEY SHOULD QUIT AND RELAUNCH IT.
- OK, SO QUIT GOOGLE EARTH AND GO AHEAD AND RELAUNCH IT.

SO WHEN EVERYBODY'S GOT THIS LAUNCHED, WE CAN
JUMP INTO OUR FIRST THING.
JUST BY A SHOW OF HANDS, HOW MANY OF YOU
HAVE USED GOOGLE EARTH BEFORE?

- REALLY? SOME OF YOU HAVE NOT?
AWESOME. THAT'S GOOD.
OK, WELL, THEN, LET ME DEFINE IT.
HOW MANY OF YOU USED IT IN THAT YOU'VE GONE TO GOOGLE EARTH
FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE IN EITHER
LOOKING UP SOMETHING, GETTING DIRECTIONS, OR WHAT HAVE YOU?

OK. HOW MANY OF YOU STARTED UP GOOGLE EARTH
AND SAID, "WOW, THIS LOOKS REALLY COOL,
"BUT THE INTERFACE IS A LITTLE BIT DAUNTING.
"I DON'T HAVE TIME TO LEARN THIS STUFF.
I'M JUST GONNA PLAY A LITTLE BIT"?

OK, SO WE'RE ABOUT HALF AND HALF. GOOD.
OK. HAS EVERYONE SUCCESSFULLY LAUNCHED?
- I'M HAVING TROUBLE.
- YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE.
THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE YOURS LAUNCHED,
PLEASE UNCHECK ALL OF THE BOXES OVER HERE.

AND JUST A WORD OF CAUTION,
IF YOU USE GOOGLE EARTH,
YOU ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT TO HAVE
ALL OF THESE BOXES CHECKED.
IT WILL BLOW YOUR COMPUTER UP.
- [LAUGHTER]
- OK. GOOD. OK, SO,
LET'S JUST TALK ABOUT THIS RIGHT HERE FIRST.
EVERYBODY HERE HAS SEEN THIS, RIGHT?
SAFE TO SAY YES, WE'VE ALL SEEN THIS SCREEN HERE?
AND THEN THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVEN'T,
YOU'VE SEEN A GLOBE BEFORE, THOUGH, YEAH?
YEAH. OK. OK, SO,
OUR INTERFACE, OR THE INTERFACE, IS BASICALLY SET UP SO THAT
OUR MANAGEMENT OF CONTENT IS ALL HERE IN LAYERS,
SIMILAR TO LAYERS IN, LET'S SAY, PHOTOSHOP.
EVERYONE HERE HAS USED PHOTOSHOP BEFORE, RIGHT, OR FAMILIAR WITH IT?
OK, YOU KNOW HOW YOU HAVE DIFFERENT LAYERS FOR CONTENT
WITHIN YOUR INTERFACE.
THAT'S WHAT'S OVER HERE, AND THEN OVER HERE
IS THE FUN STUFF.
THESE ARE YOUR NAVIGATION CONTROLS.
SO THEY CONTROL ZONE, ZOOM IN, ZOOM OUT,
PITCH, ROTATION, AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE,
AND THEN OVER HERE, WHERE IT SAYS "PLACES,"
THIS IS WHERE, WHENEVER WE GO SOMEWHERE,
IT WILL STORE THAT IN YOUR PLACES,
EITHER TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY IF YOU SAVE IT.
AND LATER ON, WHEN WE CREATE OUR OWN CONTENT,
IT WILL BE STORED THERE,
AND THEN UP THERE IS OUR SEARCH FLD.
OUR SEARCH WINDOW.
SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU GUYS TO DO AT THE MOMENT
IS LET'S FLY TO PASADENA, CALIFORNIA.
SO I'M GONNA TYPE IN THE SEARCH FLD...

PASADENA, CA.

- THIS IS ALL DONE ON SATELLITE, HUH?
- I'M SORRY? - IT'S ALL USING A SATELLITE?
- YES. BUT YOU'RE GONNA WANT TO UNCHECK
ALL OF THAT RIGHT THERE,
BECAUSE THEN IT WILL TAKE FOREVER FOR IT TO RENDER.

SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT GOOGLE DOES
YOU KNOW, WE GET GOOGLE EARTH FOR FREE.
THE ENTERPRISE EDITION, Y'ALL DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR,
OR AS AN EDUCATOR, YOU CAN APPLY FOR IT,
BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT GOOGLE DOES
TO TRY TO HELP YOU AS A USER
IN CASE YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR SOME TYPE OF MATERIAL
THAT THEY CAN ADVERTISE,
IS USUALLY WHEN YOU SEARCH, IT ALWAYS HAS THAT
JUST LIKE IN THE SEARCH, WHEN YOU GO INTO SEARCH
GOOGLE SEARCH, IT'S OVER TO THE RIGHT.
USUALLY THE ADS.
BUT THE REASON WHY I HAD YOU GUYS GO HERE TO PASADENA
IS BECAUSE OF THE FOLLOWING.
SO ILET'S SAY YOU WERE DOING RESEARCH ON PASADENA,
AND IT WAS FOR A PARTICULAR SPORTING EVENT
IN A PARTICULAR VENUE.
WHAT VENUE MOST LIKELY WOULD I BE TALKING ABOUT
IF IT WAS PASADENA?
- ROSE BOWL.
- AND THEN FULL DISCLOSURE, I ACTUALLY
WENT TO AND PLAYED FOOTBALL AT UCLA,
SO I SPENT MANY A YEAR IN THE ROSE BOWL, ALTHOUGH
- BOO. - WHOO! - NOT DOING SO HOT NOW,
BUT I STILL WILL SAY "GO BRUINS."
- GO BRUINS! - [LAUGHTER]
- SO THERE'S A COUPLE OF WAYS THAT WE CAN
I MEAN, I KNEW WHERE IT IS BECAUSE I'M FAMILIAR,
BUT IF YOU WANTED TOLET'S SAY
WE WANTED TO GO SPECIFICALLY TO THE ROSE BOWL,
RATHER THAN GO TO PASADENA AND THEN TRY TO FIND IT,
IF YOU TYPE IN "ROSE BOWL," BECAUSE NOW WE HAVE ESSENTIALLY
CHANGED OUR VIEW TO PASADENA,
WE CAN JUST TYPE IN, IN HERE...

"ROSE BOWL," AND THAT WILL GO IN THERE.
SO THE REASON WHY I COVERED I GO THROUGH THIS
IS BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES, USERS,
AND WHEN I SAY "USERS," MY DEFINITION OF "USERS"
IS BOTH ADULTS AND STUDENTS, OR CHILDREN,
WILL DO WHAT WE JUST DID.
THEY WILL TYPE IN "PASADENA" AND THEN TRY TO FIND SOMETHING
RATHER THAN JUST THE ACTUAL LOCATION, IF YOU WILL.
SO JUST FOR A SEARCH DEFICIENCY PURPOSES,
IF YOU JUST TYPED IN WHAT IT IS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR,
MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, IT WILL TAKE YOU
STRAIGHT TO THAT PARTICULAR LOCATION.
- [INDISTINCT]
- I'M GONNA GET TO THAT IN JUST A SECOND.
OK. SO. THERE'S OUR ROSE BOWL.
IF WE WANTED TO GET A BETTER VIEW OF THE ROSE BOWL,
WE CAN DO THE FOLLOWING OVER HERE TO THE RIGHT.
THE BAR HERE, UP ZOOMS IN, DOWN ZOOMS OUT.
IF YOU HAVE A WHEEL ON YOUR MOUSE,
ROLLING IT AWAY FROM YOU ZOOMS IN,
ROLLING IT TOWARDS YOU ZOOMS OUT,
AND ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS IS THAT
GOOGLE EARTH'S VIEW EXCUSE ME, GOOGLE EARTH'S INTERFACE
HAS WHAT'S CALLED SMART ZOOM.
SO WHEREVER MY CURSOR IS,
IF I ROLL THE MOUSE OR DOUBLE-CLICK,
IT WILL ZOOM TO THAT, AS OPPOSED
TO JUST THE CENTER OF THE INTERFACE.
- SAY THAT AGAIN, KEN.
- IT'S GONNA ZOOM TO WHERE THE CURSOR IS.
- I'M SORRY?
- HE JUST [INDISTINCT]
- I DON'T HAVE THAT ON THAT SCALE.
HOW DO YOU GET
- OK, AND JUST CONTINUING THROUGH
SOME OF THE NAVIGATIONAL TOOLS,
WE CAN CHANGE WITH THE ROTATION,
WE CAN CHANGE OUR VIEW FACING SOUTH, FACING EAST,
FACING NORTH OR WHAT HAVE YOU,
AND THEN HERE IS WHERE YOU HAVE THE PANNING, IF YOU WILL,
WHERE YOU CAN EITHER, YOU KNOW, JUST MOVE IT WITHOUT NECESSARILY
CHANGING THE ENTIRE PITCH, IF YOU WILL.
BUT IF WE ZOOM ALL THE WAY IN...

YOU CAN THEN NOW GO DOWN TO OH, THIS HAS BEEN UPDATED.
- YEAH, IT GETS UP [INDISTINCT] WHICH IS THAT RIGHT THERE.
- GROUND LEVEL.

- [INDISTINCT]
- RIGHT. THAT'S UPDATED IN VERSION 6,
THAT YOU CAN DO THAT.
SO NOW WE'RE ACTUALLY ON THE FLD.

THE STANDS ARE EMPTY.

AND WE'RE AT GROUND VIEW.
WHAT USED TO BE IS YOU USED TO HAVE TO CLICK ON
"GO TO GROUND VIEW," ESSENTIALLY.
NOW IF YOU JUST ZOOM ALL THE WAY IN,
YOU CAN DO THAT.

AND THIS IMAGERY IS...AH. SO THIS IS RECENT.

BECAUSE IT USED TO BE OH, THAT'S FUNNY,
BECAUSE WHEN I USED TO GO TO THE ROSE BOWL,
IT USED TO BE USC AND...TEXAS, I WANT TO SAY,
WHICH WAS THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
NOW THEY'VE GO THE RIGHT LETTERS ON THAT FLD.
- THAT'S RIGHT. - [LAUGHTER]
- AND THEN, WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 6 IS THIS RIGHT HERE.
WE NOW KNOW WHEN THIS IMAGE WAS TAKEN
BY THE GOOGLE EARTH SATELLITE.
- HOW'D YOU GET THE GROUND VIEW [INDISTINCT]
- DID YOU GO TO UCLA? - YES, I DID.
- [LAUGHS]

- AND THEN ONE LAST THING I WANTED TO MENTION
WITH RESPECT TO THE NAVIGATION
IS THE FACT THAT I CAN NOW TAKE THIS PERSON OVER HERE,
I CAN DRAG WHERE I WANT TO ESSENTIALLY STAND, IF YOU WILL,
WHICH IN FRONT OF THE SIGN,
AND IT WILL NOW TAKE ME DOWN TO GROUND LEVEL THAT WAY AS WELL.

- [INDISTINCT] CARS ARE [INDISTINCT] FLAT.

- I'M SORRY? - CARS ARE FLAT.
THEY DON'T [INDISTINCT]
- NO. - [LAUGHTER]
- EXACTLY. I'LL GET INTO THAT AS WELL
A LITTLE BIT LATER ON,
WHY SOME BUILDINGS ARE 3-D AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE.
IN FACT, THOSE OF YOU THAT USE SKETCHUP, YOU'LL LIKE THAT.
SO BEFORE WE GO INTO SOME OF THE CONTENT,
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NAVIGATION?

I KNOW IT'S FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD,
HOW TO MANIPULATE THE USER INTERFACE.
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT NAVIGATION? YES.
- YEAH, I CAN'T DO IT WITH THE GUIDE, BUT THE CIRCLE,
AT ONE POINT IT APPEARED ON MY SCREEN,
BUT I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO [INDISTINCT]
- WHICH CIRCLE?
- THE ONE THAT THE TARGET-TYPE THING THAT YOU HAD
THAT WAS THAT WAS GETTING YOU THE GROUND VIEW.

- OVER HERE?

OR OVER HERE?
- NO. IT
- THAT? - YEAH, THAT ONE.
- OH, THAT'S TELLING ME WHERE I'M ZOOMING.
SEE HOW IT MOVES AROUND WHEN I MOVE THE CURSOR?
[INDISTINCT]
- IT'S RIGHT-CLICK AGAIN.
- SO WHEN YOU ROTATE THE MOUSE WHEEL,
THAT'S JUST TELLING YOU WHERE YOU'RE ACTUALLY ZOOMING IN.
- SO IT'S A RIGHT-CLICK.
- YEAH.

- ALL RIGHT. SO. NEXT.
AND IF YOU'LL NOTICE OVER HERE,
WE'VE GONE TO PASADENA AND THE ROSE BOWL.
IT DOES SAVE YOUR LOCATION,
SO THAT THAT WAY, IF YOU SAVE THEM INTO "MY PLACES,"
YOU WILL THEN NOW BE POPULATING THIS WITH CONTENT
BASED ON YOUR SEARCHES OR WHAT HAVE YOU.
SO THE FIRST THING I WANNA DO IS CHANGE THIS OVER HERE.
I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT MY PLACES YET,
SO I'M GONNA MOVE THAT UP SO I SEE MORE OF MY LAYERS.
SHOULD I DO THAT AGAIN?

- SURE. - OK.
OVER HERE, YOU CAN ADJUST THESE WINDOWS.
AND I'M MOVING LAYERS ALL THE WAY UP,
BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING INTO NEXT.

ALL RIGHT. SO. ANOTHER THING THAT YOU CAN DO HERE
WITH THE SEARCH, WHILE I'M STILL HERE IN PASADENA,
IS I CLICKED ON "FIND BUSINESSES."
AND I CAN EITHER TELL IT WHERE I WANT TO FIND A SPECIFIC BUSINESS
OR, IF YOU'LL NOTICE, IT HAS "CURRENT VIEW" SELECTED,
WHICH MEANS IT'S GONNA FIND IT HERE.
SO LET'S SAY WE WERE GONNA GO GET PIZZA AFTER THIS.
[INDISTINCT] EXAMPLE.

I NOW KNOW WHERE THERE ARE PIZZA PLACES
THAT ARE WITHIN THE VIEW THAT I ESSENTIALLY HAD,
WHICH WAS PASADENA.
- ALL OF THOSE ARE GONNA BE MOBBED AFTER THE GAMES.
- WHAT'S THAT? - I SAID ALL OF THOSE ARE GONNA BE TOO CROWDED AFTER THE GAME.
- YEAH, NO KIDDING. WELL, I USED TO ALWAYS GET PIZZA FROM HERE.
CASA BIANCA. BUT YOU KNOW,
THE LINE THERE WAS ALWAYS [INDISTINCT]

NOW, WHY DO I BRING UP SEARCHING FOR BUSINESSES?
WELL, IN THE CASE OF YOU AS A CONSUMER,
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING SOMEWHERE AND SOMEONE SAID,
"HEY, YOU KNOW, YOU WANT TO GO TO GET COFFEE IN BLANK CITY,"
IF YOU'RE USING GOOGLE EARTH, YOU NOW CAN DO A SEARCH
FOR "COFFEE" IN THAT CITY.
I HAVE MY STUDENTS, WHEN THEY ARE DOING TOURS,
CREATING TOURS, ESPECIALLY A TRAVEL JOURNAL,
WHICH I'LL GET INTO A LITTLE BIT LATER,
THEY HAVE TO TELL ME WHAT THEY'RE DOING IN A CITY,
WHERE THEY'RE DOING IT, AND THEN WE'LL GET INTO IT LATER
I NEED TO KNOW HOW FAR THEY HAD TO TRAVEL
TO GET TO THAT PARTICULAR SPOT.

SO THEY USE THE MEASUREMENT TOOLS,
WHICH I WILL GET INTO THAT IN JUST A LITTLE BIT.
SO THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE WITH THE FLY TO
VERSUS THE FINDING BUSINESSES,
AND HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE USED GOOGLE MAPS BEFORE?
ALL RIGHT, AND HOW MANY OF YOU
PLEASE KEEP YOUR HANDS UP IF YOU'VE USED THEM FOR DIRECTIONS.
OK. YOU GUYS NOTICE THIS RIGHT HERE?

SAME CONCEPT, BUT IN GOOGLE EARTH,
IT ACTUALLY IS A LITTLE BIT MORE VISUALLY APPEALING
WHEN YOU WANT TO FIND DIRECTIONS.
SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND GO OVER TO "DIRECTIONS,"
AND THEN WE'LL GO OVER TO THE CONTENT.
- [INDISTINCT]
- SORRY? - [INDISTINCT]
- PERFECT. THANK YOU.
OK. SO.

WE WANT TO GO FROM PASADENA TO...

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES.

AND JUST LIKE IN MAPS, YOU'RE GONNA GET THE DISTANCE...

THE DISTANCE AND THE TIME.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND MAPS,
IT SAYS ABOUT 16 MINUTES.
WE ALL KNOW, DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF DAY,
THAT IS DEFINITELY NOT TRUE.
AND THAT'S ONE OF THE DIFFERENCES
WITH FINDING DIRECTIONS ON EARTH VERSUS IN MAPS.
MAPS IS GONNA GIVE YOU FAIRLY ACCURATE DATA,
ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO THE FREEWAYS.
AND THEN JUST A REALLY QUICK QUESTION
AND POP QUIZ FOR YOU GUYS.
IF YOU HAVE USED TRAFFIC IN FACT, LET ME GO HERE.

SO IF YOU NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE HERE,
IT'S TELLING YOU IN MAPS
WHAT THE ESTIMATED TIME IS WITH TRAFFIC,
WHICH THIS ONE SAYS 40 MINUTES IN TRAFFIC,
AND WE ALL KNOW THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY THE CASE AS WELL.

BUT I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU GUYS A REALLY QUICK QUESTION,
AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN HIT YOUR FRIENDS WITH.
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW HOW AND WHY
MAPS IS ABLE TO GET THIS TRAFFIC DATA?

AND THIS IS THE REASON WHY IT'S DIFFERENT WITH MAPS
THAN IT IS WITH EARTH.
- I HEARD THAT A CAR DRIVES AROUND
AND DOES ALL THESE MAPPINGS.
- THAT'S STREET VIEW. HOW DOES IT GIVE
REAL-TIME TRAFFIC DATA HERE?
- STUFF ON THE PAVEMENT THAT MEASURES. - SATELLITES?
- SO WE'VE GOT STUFF ON THE PAVEMENT THAT MEASURES.
- [INDISTINCT] CALTRANS?
- GOT CALTRANS.

- ANY OTHER GUESSES? - SATELLITE.
- GOT SATELLITE. ANY OTHER GUESSES?
- ALL OF THE ABOVE?

- WHAT MOST LIKELY DOES EVERYBODY HAVE WITH THEM AT ALL TIMES?
- CELL PHONE. - GPS.
- CELL PHONE. WHAT IS YOUR CELL PHONE DOING ALL THE TIME?
PINGING THE TOWERS. SO IT EXTRAPOLATES THE DATA
IN THE TIME IT TAKES FOR YOU TO GO
FROM ONE TOWER TO THE NEXT.
IF IT IS SLOW, IT SAYS THERE MUST BE TRAFFIC.
IF IT IS FAST, THERE ISN'T ANY TRAFFIC.
GOOGLE EARTH'S SERVERS PRIMARILY OPERATE ON IMAGERY,
WHEREAS MAPS, THE ALGORITHM FOR MAPS IS REAL TIME.
THAT'S WHY IF WE WERE TO DO THIS TRAFFIC AT 1 A.M.,
YOU WOULD NOT SEE THE RED LINES.
SO THERE'S A LITTLE TIDBIT FOR YOU.
THAT'S HOW YOU GET REAL-TIME TRAFFIC DATA,
WHETHER YOU'RE IN YOUR CAR AND YOU HAVE A NAV SYSTEM IN YOUR CAR
OR IN CASE OF THIS.
IT'S FROM YOUR CELL PHONES.
- HOW DID YOU GET THE TRAFFIC TO SHOW?
- HOW DID I GET TRAFFIC TO SHOW?
WHEN I WAS IN THE MAP, I CLICKED ON "TRAFFIC" HERE.
- SO DID THEY, LIKE, BUY THAT DATA FROM THE
THEY DON'T HAVE THE PHONE TOWER OR THE
- THAT DATA IS SHARED.
- IS SHARED? - YES.
SO, LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU KNOW,
DIFFERENT CARS HAVE DIFFERENT NAVIGATION SYSTEM.
IS IT ONSTAR? BMW ASSIST.
ALL THESE DIFFERENT IT'S ALL SHARED DATA
SPECIFIC FOR THIS.
BUT MY MAIN PURPOSE IN SHARING THIS WITH YOU GUYS
IS THAT'S THE REASON WHY YOU'RE GETTING THIS INFORMATION IN MAPS
THAT YOU WOULDN'T GET IN EARTH.
YES?
- RIGHT, SO THE OTHER DAY, I WAS USING [INDISTINCT]
WHEN I WAS STUCK IN TRAFFIC AND THEY WERE SO DETAILED.
THEY WERE TELLING YOU THERE WAS TRAFFIC
THERE'S TWO TRUCKS BLUE TRUCKS AND WHITE TRUCKS.
THEY YOU KNOW, THEY HATE EACH OTHER AND THERE'S OTHER CARS,
DIFFERENT COLORS INVOLVED, AND THERE'S, LIKE,
POLICE ON THE SIDE.
IT WAS LIKE 5 MINUTES LIKE, WITHIN 5 MINUTES, YOU GET
INFORMATION FOR IT.
HOW DO THEY DO THAT?
- THAT SPECIFIC INFORMATION IS USUALLY THROUGH CALTRANS.
THIS IS JUST THROUGH YOUR CELL PHONE.
BUT YES, WHEN YOU START GETTING THE DETAILS, WHAT'S
REPORTED IS THROUGH CALTRANS.
- OK.
- ANY OTHER QUICK QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS?
OK.

SO THAT'S TWO DIFFERENT WAYS TO LOOK UP DIRECTIONS.
AND NOW, I WANT TO GET INTO CONTENT.
SOAND IF YOU'LL NOTICE, SEE, I DIDWE DID A SEARCH
FOR PASADENA, THEN THE ROSE BOWL, THEN PIZZA.
NOW DIRECTIONS PASADENA IT'S SAVING ALL OF MY QUERIES,
WHETHER IT WAS GOING TO FIND THE BUSINESS OR DIRECTIONS.
BUT WHAT I WANT TO DO WITH YOU GUYS REAL QUICK NOW IS TALK
ABOUT THIS OVER HERE.
THERE IS SO MUCH DATA AVAILABLE IN THE LAYER SECTION
OF GOOGLE EARTH THAT WE COULD PROBABLY SPEND 6 HOURS JUST
ON THIS SECTION ALONE.
SO WE'RE GOING TO WORK WITH SOME OF IT, BUT ONCE YOU GUYS
ARE CONFIDENT IN YOUR USE OF GOOGLE EARTH, IF YOU WANT TO
GO IN AND PLAY, THIS IS ONE OF THE AREAS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO
WANT TO PLAY.
THERE'SI ALWAYS SAYI ALWAYS CONTEST THAT YOU CAN
PROBABLY FIND ENOUGH DATA IN HERE IN ANY CURRICULAR AREA
THAT YOU COULD USE GOOGLE EARTH AS YOUR SOLE SOURCE
OF DIRECT INSTRUCTION.
THERE'S LITERALLY THAT MUCH HERE.
YOU NAME THE CONTENT AREA, I CAN TELL YOU WHAT YOU CAN
FIND IN HERE THAT WILL HELP YOU IN THAT PARTICULAR
CURRICULAR AREA.
SO ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I WANT TO DO WITH YOU GUYS IS,
I WANT YOU TO ENABLE BORDERS AND LABELS.
SO WHY DON'T WE ZOOM BACK OUT A LITTLE BIT SO WE CAN SEE
MOST OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND...PRETTY MUCH,
LET'S SAY, THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES.
I'M GOING TO CLICK ON "BORDERS AND LABELS," AND IT'S GOING TO
GIVE ME NOT ONLY THE BORDERS OF THE STATES, BUT SOME
OF THE MAJOR CITIES.
BUT IF YOU'LL NOTICE, THE LITTLE DROP-DOWN ARROW
HERE AT BORDERS AND LABELS, I CAN ACTUALLY CUSTOMIZE THAT
CONTENT, AS WELL, BETWEEN BORDERS AND LABELS.

SO THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY I SAID, WHEN WE USE
GOOGLE EARTH, YOU ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT TO HAVE ALL
OF THESE CHECKED BECAUSE IF YOU'LL NOTICE, JUST IN BORDERS
AND LABELS ALONE, YOU HAVE ALL OF THIS CONTENT IN WHICH YOU
CAN FILTER WHAT YOU CONSUMED, OR WHAT HAVE YOU.
SO LET'S LEAVE THIS CHECK FOR NOW, AND WE'RE GOING TO TRAVEL
TOGETHER TO ONE OF OOPS TO ONE OF OUR FIRST LOCATIONS.
AND THAT IS GOING TO BE...MADRID, SPAIN.

HAS ANYONE IN HERE EVER BEEN TO MADRID?
SO A FEW OF US.

DID YOU GUYS ENJOY IT?
- IT WAS RAINING.
I ALWAYS WANTED TO GO, SO THE ONE DAY I SPENT THERE...
- OH, REALLY? WHEN WAS IT?
OH, SO DID YOU GO TO BARCELONA OR...
- I WENT TO BARCELONA.
WENT TO THE [INDISTINCT] WAY UP TO THE NORTH, SO...
- YOU HAD YOUR VISA? - IT WAS [INDISTINCT].
- AND YOU MADE IT BACK, HUH?
- YEAH, 'CAUSE I WAS YOUNGER, SO [INDISTINCT].
I WENT TO GREECE.
- I'VE GOT FAR FEWER LABELS THAN YOU DO.
LIKE, I'VE JUST GOTTEN MADRID, SPAIN.

AND THEY'RE ALL CHECKED.
- HMM.
MY GUESS IS, IF YOU CLICKED IN ONCE, IT'LL RENDER I'LL ZOOM
IN JUST A LITTLE BIT.

AND I JUSTIS ITYEAH. WELL, NO, LET'S STICK WITH...

AND YOU QUIT EARTH AND STARTED BACK UP, RIGHT?
- IT WASN'T RUNNING, SO...
- DO ME A FAVOR CLICK HERE AND CLICK "ABOUT."

YEAH. WAIT AND SEE. YEAH, IT'S ON.
AND YOU HAVE EVERYTHING ENABLED.
WELL, FOR WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO, YOU'LL BE OK, ANYWAY.
- YEAH.
- SO, THOSE OF US THAT HAVE BEEN,
AND EVEN THOSE WHO HAVEN'T BEEN, ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS
WE'RE GOING TO DO IS, WE'RE GOING TO GO INTO A FAMOUS
MUSEUM IN MADRID.
NOW, THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN THERE, HAVE YOU BEEN TO
THE PRADO?
OH, REALLY? OK.
I WANT TO SHOW YOU ANOTHER PRADO.
SO WE DID OUR SEARCH FOR MADRID, SPAIN.
IF WE WANT TO GO THE PRADO, WHAT SHOULD WE TYPE IN?
- PRADO. - PRADO.

- "PRADO MUSEUM."
"EL MUSEO DEL PRADO" IS GOING TO BE...A.

NOW, I CLICK ON THE LINK OVER HERE, BECAUSE NOW I'M GOING TO
GET A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION, AND OF COURSE, GOOGLE PART
OF HOW THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY REMEMBER WHEN WE DID
THE BUSINESS SEARCH, OR EVEN THE [INDISTINCT] PULL-UP ADS?
IT IS STILL PULLING UP ADS, BUT THE MAIN THING IS, NOW WE
CAN GET A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE MUSEUM
WITHOUT HAVING TO GO ON THE INTERNET NECESSARILY TO
LOOK IT UP.
SO WE'RE GETTING A LITTLE TRIP ADVISOR.
BUT I WANT TO ZOOM IN ON THAT.

SO I DOUBLE CLICK ON THE LINK AND IT'S GOING TO TAKE ME DOWN
TO THE MUSEUM.

NOW, ANOTHER ONE OF THE LAYERS THAT WE CAN ENABLE...IF YOU DO
THE DROP DOWN ARROW FOR "MORE," WE CAN ENABLE THE
WIKIPEDIA LAYER...WHICH IT'S HARD TO SEE.
YOU PROBABLY HAVE TO ZOOM IN.
THERE'S A LITTLE "W." THERE IT IS RIGHT THERE.
AND SO NOW, WE CAN LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT EL MUSEO
DEL PRADO.
- LOVE IT.
- AND I ENABLE THAT IN "MORE" AND THEN WIKIPEDIA.
AND THEN YOU CAN GET HERE AND LEARN WHEN IT WAS BUILT,
WHAT PCES ARE IN THERE.
IF YOU CLICK "FULL ARTICLE," IT WILL TAKE YOU TO,
YOU KNOW, THE FULL ARTICLE ON
- HOW DO YOU OPEN IT?
- YEAH, JUST CLICK ON THE "W."
- IT'S SO EASY.
- SO I FOUND "PAINTING AND SCULPTURE," YADA YADA YADA.
IT SHOWS YOU SOME EXAMPLES OF SOME OF THE PCES THAT
ARE IN THERE.
BUTWHO WANTS TO GO INTO THE MUSEUM?
- SURE.
- YOU GUYS WANT TO GO IN?
- OK. - YEAH? THAT SOUND COOL?
OK.
SO, I'M GOING TO CLOSE THE WIKIPEDIA WINDOW, REMOVE THAT
FROM MY LAYERS, AND I'M GOING TO CLICK ON "3-D BUILDINGS,"
AND LET IT RENDER UP THE 3-D BUILDING.
NOW, JUST FOR THE SAKE OF BEING ABLE TO SEE IT,
I'M GOING TO ROTATE MY VIEW BACK UP A LITTLE BIT AND I
WANT TO ZOOM "IN SUB."
AND...AND THERE WE GO.
- THAT'S WHERE?
- WELL, HOW DID HE GET THERE?
- "STREET SCENE MODE."

- OOPS.
- OK.
SO, IF YOU GUYS WEREIF YOU GUYS WERE LET'S PRETEND YOU
GUYS WERE STUDENTS OF MINE, SO I KNOW YOU CAN'T DRIVE
BECAUSE YOU'RE 13 AND
[LAUGHTER]
YOU'RE PROBABLY MAD BECAUSE ONE OF YOUR FRIENDS SAID,
YOU KNOW, "I'M TAKING YOUR BACKPACK" OR WHAT HAVE YOU.
AND THE SCHOOL FOOD IS TERRIBLE.
BUT FOR THE SAKE OF THIS TIME, YOU GUYS ARE STUDENTS OF MINE.

LET'S SAY YOU HAVE SOME BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE
OF WESTERN EUROPEAN ARCHITECTURE.
WHAT WOULD BE ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS THAT YOU GUYS WOULD
OBSERVE OF THIS FACADE RIGHT NOW THAT AGAIN, YOU WOULD
HAVE SOME BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE BECAUSE YOU WOULD BE IN THE
8th GRADE WITH ME, WHICH MEANS YOU'VE HADYOU'VE STUDIED
ANCIENT GREECE AND ANCIENT ROME IN THE 6th GRADE.
WHAT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO TELL JUST
FROM THIS FRONT RIGHT HERE THAT WOULD BE CONSISTENT
WITH GREEK AND EVEN ITALIAN ARCHITECTURE?
- THE COLUMNS? - THE COLUMNS, THAT'S RIGHT.
SO THE REASON WHY I BRING THAT UP IS BECAUSE, AS STUDENTS,
DO YOU GET THIS KIND OF INFORMATION OR EVEN THIS VIEW
IN A TEXTBOOK?
- NO. - NO.
AND IF I DIDN'T HAVE THIS, I COULD TELL YOU,
"HEY, I'VE BEEN TO THIS MUSEUM IN SPAIN, AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
"THE ARCHITECTURAL INFLUENCE SPREAD ALL THE WAY THROUGHOUT
"THE MEDITERRANEAN BECAUSE THE MUSEUM WAS BUILT WITH COLUMNS."
YOU GUYS WOULD SAY, "OH, THAT SOUNDS REALLY COOL,
MR. SHELTON..." [MUMBLING]
NOW, WE'LL GO TO IT IN GOOGLE EARTH,
SO NOW YOU CAN SEE IT FOR YOURSELF.
AND IF YOU ZOOM ALL THE WAY IN, WHICH I WILL DO NOW,
I'M GOING TO GOIN FACT, I'LL EVEN DRAG THE GUIDE HERE, AND...
- OH.

- IS THERE A TRICK WHEN YOU'RE HAVING TO ZOOM?
DO I USE THE SAME BUTTON?
[LAUGHTER]
- I'LL JUST DO THE ZOOM-IN.

THERE WE GO.
NOW I'M IN STREET VIEW.
SO REMEMBER THAT 3-D MODEL WE SAW OF IT?
THAT'S AN ACTUAL PICTURE OF IT.
- AND HOW DID YOU GET TO STREET VIEW?
- I ZOOMED OK, I'LL EXIT AND I'LL DO IT AGAIN.
EXIT.
RIGHT NOW, WE'RE ON GOOGLE EARTH VIEW.
IF I ZOOM ALL THE WAY IN UNTIL IT GOES DOWN AND FLATTENS OUT,
THEN I'LL LET GOIT WILL CONVERT TO STREET VIEW.
AND SO NOW, WE GET AN IDEA OFYOU KNOW,
MY STUDENTS ALWAYS SAYYOU KNOW, SAY,
"AH, MR. SHELTON, CARS ARE ALWAYS SO SMALL IN EUROPE.
"ARE THE PEOPLE SMALLER?"
"NO, THEY JUST HAVE LESS PARKING."
[LAUGHTER]
- MORE TAXES. - EXACTLY.
- IT DOESN'T SAY HOW RECENT THAT IMAGE IS
IN THE STREET VIEW.
IS THERE SOME WAY TO KNOW HOW RECENT THAT IS?
- NO, AND I CAN TELL YOU TWO REASONS
WHY IT DOESN'T DO THAT, WHICH WE'LL GET INTO A LITTLE
BIT LATER.
A LOT OF THESE PHOTOS AND STREET VIEW IMAGERY IS EITHER
GOOGLE OR USER CONTENT THAT'S BEEN CONTRIBUTED.
SO, LIKE, I'LL SHOW YOU GUYSWE'LL SHOW YOU GUYS
IN A LITTLE BIT SOME OF THE OTHER THINGS I DO.
IF YOU WERE TO ENABLE THE PHOTOS IN EITHER GOOGLE MAPS
OR EARTH AND GO TO PASADENA CITY COLLEGE, YOU WOULD SEE
A PHOTO THAT I DID WITH THE LAST WORKSHOP WHERE I SAID,
"I DID THIS UPLOADED [INDISTINCT].
YOU'LL COME BACK IN ABOUT A WEEK, AND THEN YOU'LL SEE
A PHOTO OF THE POOL, AND IT'S THERE NOW.
AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE THINGS WHERE ALL OF THE PHOTOS
IN GOOGLE EARTH AND ALL OF THE PHOTOS IN GOOGLE MAPS ARE USER
CONTRIBUTED IN [INDISTINCT].
- BUT THERE'S NO WAY TO KNOW, LIKE, AN AGE OR A DATE
OR ANYTHING?
- I'M SORRY?
- THERE'S NO REFERENCE POINT OF, LIKE, WHEN WAS THE LAST
TIME SOMEBODY UPLOADED
- NO, BECAUSE AGAIN, BECAUSE IF YOU
TAKE A PHOTO, LET'S SAY, OF AN EMPTY LOT, AND THEN
A YEAR LATER, I TAKE A PHOTO AND NOW THERE'S A BUILDING
THERE, THEY'RE GOING TO WANT TO HAVE THE MOST
UPDATED CONTENT.
SO I CAN'T GIVE YOU A SPECIFIC ANSWER AS TO WHEN GOOGLE
UPDATES, BUT I SINCERELY DOUBT ANYTHING'S GOING TO CHANGE
THAT MANY TIMES
- NO, I [INDISTINCT].
- NO, BUT I'M JUST SAYING, THAT'S
WHY THEY DON'T NECESSARILY GIVE YOU A SPECIFIC DATE
IN WHICH THAT CONTENT WAS CONTRIBUTED.
YES?
- I GOT SOME WEIRD CROSS SECTION ARCHITECTURAL THING
THAT I CAN'T GET RID OF.

- OH, BECAUSE YOU'RE ON THE SIDE.

STREET.
SO THE NEXT THING I WANT TO DO WITH YOU GUYS
WE'RE AT THE FRONT.
I'M GOING TO EXIT STREET VIEW, BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO GO IN.
SO I ZOOM BACK.
I'M GOING TO CLICK ON IT.

AND NOW, REMEMBER, BEFORE, WE HAD THE
WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE THAT KIND OF TALKED ABOUT A LITTLE
OF THE HISTORY OF THE MUSEUM OR WHAT HAVE YOU.
NOW, THE REASON WHY WE DID 3-D BUILDINGS IS TWOFOLD.
ONE IS SO THAT WE CAN GET A GOOD IDEA AND PERSPECTIVE
OF THE SIZE OF THE BUILDING AND THE ARCHITECTURE
OF THE BUILDING, RATHER THAN BEING A TWO-DIMENSIONAL IMAGE.
THE OTHER IS, WHEN YOU CLICK ON THE BUILDING, BECAUSE IT'S
3-D, YOU GET THIS.
AND SO WE CAN SEE ALL THESE MASTERPIECES THAT ARE IN THERE.
AND I WANT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT "DESCENT FROM THE CROSS."
SO I'M GOING TO CLICK ON THE LINK.

- OH, YEAH. WOW.

- ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.
OK, SO IF YOU RIGHT CLICK ON IT, IT'LL OPEN THE WINDOW.
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO JUST CLICK ON IT.
OK, SO WHAT IS THIS?
VAN DER WEYDEN DID IT DID THIS PAINTING IN 1435.
AND THE SUBJECT IS RELIGION.
IT'S FLEMISH STYLE PAINTING.
AND, YOU KNOW, WE GET A BETTER IDEA OF IT.
BUT THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING RIGHT HERE.
SEE THIS?
"BROWSE THIS PICTURE IN ULTRA HIGH RESOLUTION."
SO LET'S GO AHEAD AND CLICK ON THAT.

SO WE'RE GOING INTO THE MUSEUM, THROUGH THE HALLWAYS
TO THE PAINTING.
- OH, MY GOD.
- NOW, HERE'S THE COOL THING
ABOUT THIS BEING ULTRA HIGH RESOLUTION.
BEFORE YOU GUYS SAY "WOW" AGAIN, HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE
BEEN TO ANY MUSEUM IN WHICH THERE ARE MASTERPIECES?
THE LOUVRE? MUSEE D'ORSAY?
GUGGENHEIM? ANY OF THEM.
EVEN [INDISTINCT], OK? OR THE GETTY.
OK, SO, IF WE WERE IN ART HISTORY CLASS, OR EVEN JUST A
HISTORY CLASS STUDYING THIS, I WOULD SAY, "WHAT ARE SOME
"OF THE THINGS THAT STAND OUT TO YOU IN THIS PHOTO?"
AND MY STUDENTS WOULD SAY, "WELL, YOU'VE GOT JESUS DEAD.
"YOU'VE GOT THIS WOMAN THAT LOOKS LIKE SHE'S PASSED OUT.
"YOU'VE GOT THIS ONE WHO'S SHOWING SORROW,"
OR WHAT HAVE YOU.
AND YOU'VE GOT THIS PARTICULAR SUBJECT HERE DOING WHAT?
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE SHE'S DOING?
I'LL GIVE YOU GUYS A HINT.
DOES IT LOOK LIKE SHE'S THINKING OR CRYING?
- CRYING. - SHE'S WEEPING.
- WELL, HOW DO WE KNOW THAT?
BECAUSE IT'S ULTRA HIGH RES, I CAN NOW DO...THAT.
- OH. - NICE.
- SO I JUST ZOOMED IN AND GOT AS CLOSE TO A PAINTING AS YOU
PROBABLY EVER WILL, AND YOU DEFINITELY WON'T GET THAT
CLOSE IN PERSON.
AND SINCE THIS ROOM IS FILLED WITH ARTISTS, ONE
OF THE QUESTIONS I ALWAYS ASK MY STUDENTS, WHICH I WILL ASK
YOU GUYS, IS, HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO PAINT TEARS?

ANYBODY KNOW?
- PROBABLY USING CLEAR GLOSS TYPE PAINTS.
- GLOSS AND THEN YOU ADD A CATCH LIGHT.
- HIGHLIGHT. - EXACTLY, YEAH.
- YOU HAVE TO USE TEXTURE.
- BUT YOU SEE, THIS IS BECAUSE THIS IS AN ULTRA HIGH
RES PHOTO, WHICHI'LL GET INTO MORE OF THAT LATER
WE CAN ACTUALLY DO THAT.
AND IF I EXIT THIS PHOTO, I WILL GO BACK OUT...

- YOU KNOW WHAT'S WEIRD?
- SANDY'S GONE, RIGHT? - HA HA HA.
- YOU KNOW WHAT'S WEIRD? - WHAT'S THAT?
- THE CRACKS IN THE PAINT UNDERNEATH THE TEAR DROPS ARE
NOT DISTORTED BY THE TEAR DROPS.
- RIGHT. - AND THEY SHOULD BE.
- RIGHT.
[LAUGHTER]
NOW, WHAT THAT'S A GREAT OBSERVATION, BECAUSE WHAT DOES
THAT MOST LIKELY TELL YOU ABOUT THIS?
IT'S PROBABLY BEEN TOUCHED UP A LITTLE BIT.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT THEY USE FOR THIS,
BUT I WILL SHOW YOU GUYS AN EXAMPLE OF A PCE
OF EQUIPMENT THAT I HAVE THAT YOU CAN MAKE OTHER PHOTOS
WITH THAT THEY PROBABLY USED.
SO
- WELL, THE CRACKS WEREN'T THERE WHEN HE PAINTED THE TEAR
DROPS, SO HE DIDN'T NEED TO MAKE THEM BEND BECAUSE THEY
WEREN'T THERE.
- RIGHT.
- SO IT'S REALLY BIZARRE TO LOOK AT IT.
- EXACTLY, EXACTLY.
WE COULD DO THE EXACT SAME THING FORAND I'LL GO TO
EMPEROR CARLOS REAL QUICK FOR ANY OF THESE OTHER
MASTERPIECES, WHERE YOU CAN ZOOM IN TO THE ULTRA HIGH RES
VERSION OF A PARTICULAR PHOTO.

AND AGAIN, FROM SEVERAL STANDPOINTS, YOU CAN NOT ONLY
STUDY THE ARTWORK UP CLOSE, BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I ALWAYS
DO WITH MY STUDENTS WHEN THEY DO THIS ISI ALWAYS ASK THEM,
YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE PAINTINGS AND YOU'RE
LOOKING AT THE TIME PERIOD, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE A COMMON
THEME IN THE ARTISTRY THAT WAS CREATED.
THE 1400's, OBVIOUSLY, YOU'RE GOING TO PROBABLY GET MORE
OF WHAT TYPE OF PAINTINGS?
- RELIGIOUS PAINTINGS.
- I'M SORRY? - RELIGIOUS PAINTINGS.
- EXACTLY. GENERALLY.
I MEAN, I'M SPEAKING REALLY GENERALLY.
OBVIOUSLY, THERE'S OTHER PAINTINGS, BUT YES, THAT'S
GOING TO BE THE CASE.

SO I WILL ZOOM BACK OUT.
AND NEXT UP, AFTER WE ZOOM OUT AND EXIT THE MUSEUM IS, I WANT
TO REMOVE "3-D BUILDINGS" FROM MY LAYERS.
I'M GOING TO GO TO "GALLERY" AND WE'RE GOING TO GO TO
"ANCIENT ROME 3D," SO WITH THAT BEING SAID, I'M GOING TO
FLY TO...
ROME, ITALY.

- SO HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU SPEND ON THIS?
- AS FAR AS...
[LAUGHTER]
- NO, JUST, YOU CAN SPEND A LOT OF TIME TRAVELING AROUND.
- YES, YOU CAN. YES.

ALL RIGHT. SO...
- THIS WOULD BE REALLY GOOD FOR WHEN I'M TOO OLD TO TRAVEL.
- WHAT'S THAT?
[LAUGHTER]
- I SAID THIS WILL BE REALLY GOOD FOR WHEN
I'M TOO OLD TO TRAVEL.
- SO NOW, AGAIN, WE ARE MANIPULATING OR MANAGING
THE CONTENT THAT WE CONSUME.
I ENABLED THE GALLERY, BUT MORE SPECIFICALLY
IN GALLERY, ANCIENT ROME IN 3-D.
AND SO, THE FIRST THING I ALWAYS LIKE
TO GO TO IS THIS RIGHT HERE, WHICH IS...
- THE COLISEUM. - THE COLISEUM.
- [INDISTINCT].
[LAUGHTER]
- YEAH, EXACTLY.
HAS ANYONE HERE BEEN TO ROME?
IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE CITIES IN THE WORLD.
- YES.
- LA BELLA ROMA.
NOWI HOPE THIS IS [INDISTINCT] HERE.

I CAN NOT ONLY READ ABOUT LET ME ZOOM RIGHT ON THERE

NOT ONLY READ ABOUT THE COLISEUM.
YOU CAN ACTUALLY GO AND GET A 3-D TERRAIN
OF THE ANCIENT TERRAIN.
SO IN OTHER WORDS, THERE AREN'T GOING TO BE MUCH THERE
ARE GOING TO BE SOME PAVED ROADS, LIKE WAS IT VIA APIA,
OR APIAN WAY, WHICH WAS THE FIRST PAVED ROAD.
BUT MY MAIN PURPOSE IN SHARING THIS WITH YOU GUYS IS, AGAIN
IS IT MORE FUN TO LEARN ABOUT ANCIENT ROME IN A TEXTBOOK,
OR WOULD WE WANT TO DO THIS?
AND THE OTHER THING THAT I WAS ENCOURAGED THE TEACHERS THAT
COVER ANCIENT HISTORY, WHETHER IT'S IN THE 6th GRADE OR
AT THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL, IS, IN THIS CASE WITH ANCIENT
ROME, IF WE HAD THE TIME TO DO IT, WE WOULD WORK OUR WAY
THROUGHOUT THE CITY, AND NOT ONLY STUDY THE ARCHITECTURE,
BUT YOU WOULD FIND OUT WHY CERTAIN THINGS WERE BUILT
WHERE THEY WERE BUILT.

I'M NOT HEARING ANYTHING.
THAT MEANS YOU GUYS ARE REALLY ENGAGED WITH THIS.
- YES. - GOOD.
[LAUGHTER]
- I'M NOT GETTING THE ANCIENT ROME 3-D WINDOW ON MINE.
I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S JUST MYI'VE GOT IT CHECKED HERE.
THAT'S GALLERY.
- YEAH, ZOOM OUT AGAIN, PLEASE.

YOURS IT'S STILL TRACKING.
I DON'T KNOW LET'S JUST READ IT.
THE SAME REASON WHY THE OTHER ONE
- I'M STILL NOT GETTING MUCH IN THE PART OF THE LABELS.
- DON'T KNOW WHY YEAH.

- IS THIS RIGHT, OR BECAUSE I'VE GOT THE éLOW STUFF.
- NO, YOU WANT TO UNCHECK "3-D BUILDINGS" HERE.
CLICK THE ARROW FOR GALLERY.
NOT THERE. NO, NO, NO, NOT THAT ONE.
GO AHEAD AND YEAH, THERE YOU GO.
NOW CLICK "ANCIENT ROME 3-D" THERE.
PERFECT.
AND SO NOW IF YOU CLICK THAT, YOU'RE GOING TO GET THAT
WINDOW THAT I HAD POP UP.

OK.
I KNOW THAT TWO THINGS BASED ON THE LAST TWO LOCATIONS
WE'VE GONE TO, I KNOW THAT GOOGLE IS WORKING ON GETTING
MORE MASTERPIECES IN MUSEUMS AROUND THE WORLD TO BE
AVAILABLE IN ULTRA HIGH RES.
OBVIOUSLY, THAT'S A WORK IN PROGRESS AND TAKES TIME,
BUT I DO KNOW THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO THAT, AND I
BELIEVE THE LOUVRE WAS ONE OF THE NEXT BIG
PROJECTS FOR THAT.
AND I KNOW THAT SOME OF THE OTHER GOOGLE-CERTIFIED
TEACHERS ACTUALLY WORK ON ANCIENT GREECE.
SO THERE'S ALWAYS CONTENT THAT'S EITHER BEING
CONTRIBUTED OR UPDATED HERE IN GOOGLE EARTH, SO WHAT WE SEE
OVER HEREI REMEMBER WHEN I WAS FIRST USING GOOGLE EARTH,
YOU ONLY HAD, LIKE, TWO LAYERS, AND THAT WAS IT.

ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS SO FAR?
OK.
ANYONE THINK THIS IS PRETTY COOL?
- WOW.
- NOW, I KNOW MOST OF YOU ARE
ARTISTS IN HERE, BUT ARE THERE THINGS THAT
WE'VE COVERED NOW THAT YOU COULD SEE WHERE YOU WOULD BE
ABLE TO USE IT IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL CAPACITY?
YES?
- OH, YEAH. - OK.
- ARE YOU GOING TO SHOW US HOW TO CONTRIBUTE?
- YES. - ALL RIGHT.
- WELL, WHEN YOU SAY "CONTRIBUTE,"
DEFINE "CONTRIBUTE."
WE'RE GOING TO COVER NOT ALL OF THIS, BUT THIS.
THEN WE'RE GOING TO MAKE OUR OWN TOUR, WHICH IS, YOU CREATE
YOUR OWN CONTENT.
AND THEN I'LL GO OVER A LITTLE BIT OF HOWTHE WAYS IN WHICH
WE WOULD BE ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE CONTENT TO THE GOOGLE
EARTH LAYERS.
ONE OF THE BIGGEST WAYS WHICH I'LL COVER IS EITHER USING
SKETCHUP OR BUILDING MAKER, AND WE'LL GET INTO THAT
IN A LITTLE WHILE.
OK, SO, NEXT...I'M GOING TO DISABLE GALLERY SO IT WILL
TAKE ALL OF THAT AWAY.
AND I WANT YOU GUYS TO RE-ENABLE "3-D BUILDINGS."
AND LET'S GO TO NEW YORK.
- JUST "3-D BUILDINGS"?
CHECK ON "3-D BUILDINGS"?
- YES, PLEASE.

WHO IN HERE HAVE BEEN TO NEW YORK?
- YEAH.
- OK.

OK, LET ME BE MORE SPECIFIC.
WHO IN HERE HAS BEEN TO NEW YORK AND BEEN TO
BROOKLYN AND MANHATTAN, OR EVEN THE BRONX?
WHAT USED TO BE THE HOUSE [INDISTINCT] BUILDING.
NOT THERE ANYMORE.
OK, IN A CLASSROOM LIKE MINE SO LET'S PRETEND YOU GUYS ARE
MY STUDENTS.
SO I'LL ASK THE SAME QUESTION.
HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN TO NEW YORK?
NOBODY'S HAND SHOULD GO UP.
[LAUGHTER]
WELL, ONLY A COUPLE.
SO TWO PEOPLE CAN RAISE THEIR HANDS.
OK.
WHEN I'M TALKING TO MY STUDENTS ABOUT URBAN DESIGN,
WHICH IS PART OF THE COMPONENT THAT I USE WITH SKETCHUP
WITH THEM, THEY HAVE TO DESIGN BUILDINGS.
AND I TELL THEM, YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE URBAN SPRAWL.
YOU CAN EITHER HAVE A MAJOR METROPOLIS IN WHICH THEY HAVE
MADE EFFICIENT USE OF THE REAL ESTATE THAT'S AVAILABLE,
OR YOU CAN HAVE SOMEWHERE LIKE LOS ANGELES, IN WHICH IT IS
SPREAD OUT BIG TIME.
MOST OF MY STUDENTS UNDERSTAND LOS ANGELES BECAUSE THEY
LIVE HERE.
MOST OF THEM DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT AN URBAN JUNGLE IS
LIKE NEW YORK.
SO I CAN DESCRIBE IT TO THEM AND SAY, "OH, THERE'S THESE
"SKYSCRAPERS EVERYWHERE, AND YOU CAN WALK DOWN
"BROADWAY, YOU CAN WALK DOWN MADISON AVENUE ANY WHERE.
"YOU CAN GO ALL THE WAY DOWN EVEN TO WALL STREET DISTRICT
"OR THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT, AND BATTERY PARK, AND YOU SEE
"NOTHING BUT BUILDINGS, WHEREAS HERE IN L.A., YOU CAN SEE
"THE MOUNTAINS," AND SO ON AND SO FORTH.
STUDENTS SAY, "OH, YEAH. OK, COOL."
NOW, WHAT I DO IS, WE ENABLE "3-D BUILDINGS," AND THEN WE
WILL ZOOM IN ON LOWER MANHATTAN.
AND THEY SHOULD BEYUP, THERE THEY GO.
THEY RENDER
- PEOPLE'S FACES ARE OBSCURED IN THIS...
- YES.
[LAUGHTER]

AND SO NOW IF I ZOOM IN, ALL OF A SUDDEN, AT LEAST
FOR MY STUDENTS, THEY'RE LIKE, "WELL, WAIT A MINUTE.
"THESE BUILDINGS ARE REALLY TALL."
AND THEN I'LL GO DOWN EVEN LOWER.

AND...ACTUALLY, LET ME JUST BACK IT UP BRFLY TO THE SPOT.

I SAY, "YEAH, NOT ONLY ARE THERE TALL BUILDINGS.
"IF YOU WALK DOWN THE STREETS LIKE I'M DOING HERE, YOU'LL
"NOTICE"...WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY SEEING?
NOTHING BUT BUILDINGS.
SO IN A CASE OF THE 3-D BUILDINGS LAYER, AREAS
IN WHICH 3-D BUILDINGS HAVE BEEN CREATED AND ACCEPTED INTO
THE GOOGLE EARTH 3-D BUILDINGS LAYER, WE NOW GET A MORE
REALISTIC PERSPECTIVE, AND IN THIS CASE, OF MANHATTAN,
OF WHAT IT'S REALLY LIKE WALKING DOWN THE STREETS OF MANHATTAN.
- WHEN YOU WALK, YOU SCROLL AND YOU...
- BASICALLY LIKE WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
YOU'RE ACTUALLY IN "STREET VIEW," WHICH STILL WOULD
ACCOMPLISH THE SAME THING.
IT'S JUSTI JUST DIDN'T ZOOM ALL THE WAY DOWN TO DO THAT.
PART OF THE REASON WHY I DO THIS IS TO EMPHASIZE WHAT IT'S
LIKE AS FAR AS URBAN PLANNING GOES.
AND SO THEN THE QUESTION BECOMES, WHY ARE ALL
THE BUILDINGS SO TALL?
AND THE HOPEFUL ANSWER IS, BECAUSE THEY MADE EFFICIENT
USE OF THE REAL ESTATE THAT WAS AVAILABLE.
THEY COULDN'T GO OUT BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT THE HUDSON OVER TO
THE LEFT AND THE EAST RIVER OVER HERE TO THE RIGHT.
SO THEY WENT UP.
THE OTHER THING ISDON'T KNOW IF YOU GUYS NOTICED.
IF YOU MOVE YOUR CURSOR OVER A BUILDING, IT WILL TELL YOU THE
ELEVATION OF THE BUILDING.
- OH, MY GOSH.
- AND THE COOL THING ABOUT THIS, MATHEMATICALLY, IS
I ALWAYS SAY, "OK, SO 200 METERS IS HOW MANY FEET?"
- TIMES 3.
- AND THEN MY STUDENTS THEY HAVE TO LEARN, YOU KNOW,
EITHER HOW TO CONVERT FROM METRIC, OR IF YOU GO INTO
DO A GOOGLE SEARCH, IF YOU JUST TYPE IN "200 METERS IN FEET,"
IT WILL GIVE YOU THE ANSWER.
- HOW DO YOU DO THE HEIGHT OF THE BUILDING AGAIN?
- I'M SORRY?
- HOW DO YOU GET THE HEIGHT OF THE BUILDING?
- JUST MOVE YOUR CURSOR OVER IT.
SEE, WATCH.
IF YOU LOOK OVER THERE, IF I MOVE OVER HERE, I'M AT ZERO.
BUT IF I MOVE TO THE TOP, SEE
- DOWN AT THE BOTTOM IT TELLS YOU AT THE BOTTOM
OF THE SCREEN.
- SO THEN AGAIN, JUST VERY QUICKLY, I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS
HERE, IF I GO TO GOOGLE SEARCH...
"200 METERS IN FEET."
THERE. THERE'S MY ANSWER. SO 656 FEET.
OR 65 STORIES.

YOU GUYS DID KNOW ABOUT THIS IN SEARCH, RIGHT?
OR NO?
YES, NO?
DID YOU GUYS KNOW ABOUT THIS IN SEARCH, THAT YOU
COULD DO THAT?
IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY DO A CONVERSION FOR YOU.
- NO, I DIDN'T KNOW.
- I KNEW THAT. - OK.
- I KNOW IT NOW.
- YEAH, IF YOU TYPE IN ANYTHING IN HERE WHAT THE
ORIGINAL NUMBER IS AND WHAT YOU WANT THE CONVERSION TO
IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY DO THAT FOR YOU.

OK, DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT THE MOMENT BEFORE
WE SEGUE INTO ANOTHER COMPONENT?
OK, I HAVE A QUESTION.
DO YOU GUYS KNOW HOW THESE BUILDINGS WERE HOW THEY
BECAME 3-D BUILDINGS?

I'LL GIVE YOU GUYS A HINT.
I MENTIONED THE APPLICATION THAT YOU USE TO DO IT.
- SKETCHUP? - SKETCHUP.
- REALLY? - YES.
SO WHAT YOU GUYS CAN DO REAL QUICK IS GO TO
WE'LL LEAVE NEW YORK AND WE'LL GO TO MY MIDDLE SCHOOL, WHICH IS
IN STUDIO CITY.

AND THEN I WILL FROM HERE
TYPE IN "WALTER REED MIDDLE SCHOOL."

AND...

NOW, IF YOU ZOOM IN ON MY MIDDLE SCHOOL OH, THIS IS RECENT.
HMM.
IT'S FUNNY, BECAUSE BEFORE, THEY HAD THE PARKING LOT
AND IT WAS PRETTY FULL, BUT I ALWAYS PARK DOWN HERE,
AND MY CAR WASN'T THERE.
AND I KNEW THAT THE IMAGERY WAS TAKEN IN THE TIME IN WHICH
I WAS OFF TRACK, BECAUSE THAT WAS WHEN WE WERE ON A YEAR
ROUND CALENDAR.
BUT THIS SAYS THE 14th, 2009.
THAT MUST HAVE BEEN VETERAN'S DAY.
- HA HA.
- BUT THE REASON WHY I HAVE YOU GUYS GO TO THISIF YOU'LL
NOTICE, WE HAVE A COUPLE OF BUILDINGS THAT ARE IN
THE 3-D BUILDINGS LAYER.
NOW, I GO BACK TO "CURRICULAR APPLICATIONS."
I WILL SHOW YOU GUYS HOW WE DID THESE, OK?
- OH, SO YOU MADE THEM? - YES.
I WORKED WITH SEVERAL STUDENTS, AND I ACTUALLY HAD
TEAMS OF STUDENTS GO AROUND CAMPUS AND THEY DID
THE FOLLOWING THINGS.
THEY HAD A PROTRACTOR, A TAPE MEASURE, AND A LASER POINTER.
THEY HAD TO TAKE ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS OF EVERY NOOK
AND CRANNY OF EVERY BUILDING.
I TAUGHT THEM HOW TO TRIANGULATE, JUST LIKE
A GPS DOES TRIANGULATE YOUR POSITION AND MEASURE
THE HEIGHT OF A BUILDING.
YOU KNOW, BASICALLY, A TRIANGLE, MEASURE THE
HEIGHT OF A BUILDING,
BUT I'LL ACTUALLY HAVE THEM CLIMB THE BUILDING.
OK, AGAIN, REMEMBER I SAID, ALL THE DIFFERENT CURRICULARY.
SO WITH THAT, YOU'RE GETTING MATH,
AND SPECIFICALLY, MEASUREMENT.
HAD TO DO ALL THOSE MEASUREMENTS.
THEN ANOTHER ONE HAD TO GO AROUND WITH A CAMERA AND MAKE
PHOTOS OF THE BUILDINGS.
BUT YOU GUYS REMEMBER THE PHOTOS FOR THE BUILDINGS
THE PHOTO TEXTURES IN NEW YORK?
- MM-HMM.
- SO THE QUESTION BECOMES, HOW DO YOU GET A PHOTO IN FULL
FRAME OF A SKYSCRAPER WHEN YOU CAN ONLY
STAND ACROSS THE STREET?

THAT'S WHERE THE ARTISTRY COMES IN.
YOU EITHER HAVE TO STITCH THEM TOGETHER, OR TAKE THE PHOTO
DO I HAVE EXPERIENCED PHOTOSHOP USERS IN HERE?
- YES.
- OK, YOU GUYS KNOW THE PERSPECTIVE CROP?
- YEAH. - THAT'S HOW YOU DO THAT.
SO YOU SEE, I'M NOW INCORPORATING MATH,
AND THE USE OF PHOTOSHOP AS FAR AS VISUALLY TO CROP
A PHOTO TO FIT AS A PHOTO TEXTURE ON HERE.
NOW, I DON'T THINK THERE'S A LINK TO THIS ON OUR RESOURCES,
BUT I COULD ADD IT.
IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO GET A BUILDING ACCEPTED INTO THE 3-D
BUILDINGS LAYER AT GOOGLE EARTH.
I HAVE OUR ENTIRE SCHOOL MODELED.
THEY HAVE VERY STRICT REQUIREMENTS.
NUMBER ONE, PHOTO TEXTURE, NO MATTER WHAT.
- HMM.
- NUMBER TWO, YOU CANNOT HAVE TOO MUCH GEOMETRY.
SO FOR EXAMPLE, OUR MAIN BUILDING THE STUDENTS THAT
DID THAT, NOT ONLY DID THEY DO THE MAIN BUILDING ITSELF,
WHICH IS RIGHT HERE, THEY DID IN FACT, NO, LET ME PULL UP
THE PICTURE SO YOU GUYS CAN SEE THAT.
OK, THAT'S A PICTURE I TOOK OF THE FRONT.
AND I KNOW IT'S NOT THAT BIG, BUT I CAN GET YOU IT LATER.
BUT ANYWAY, MY POINT IS, THEY DID ALL OF THE PLANTERS,
THE PAVED AREA, THEIR STEPS, THE ROOF, THE WINDOWS, AND ALL
THE TREES.
LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.
GOT REJECTED.
THERE WAS TOO MUCH GEOMETRY, SO IT WOULD TAKE TOO LONG
FOR IT TO RENDER IN GOOGLE EARTH.
SO THAT'S WHY, LIKE, THESE BUILDINGS HERE, THERE'S NOT
A WHOLE LOT OF GEOMETRY.
WE JUST STRIPPED MOST OF IT OUT.
THOSE GOT ACCEPTED.
YOU HAVE TOI'LL SHOW YOU GUYS THE STEPS.
BECAUSE IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE TIME
WE CAN'T DO THAT HERE, BUT BASICALLY, THE WAY IT
WORKS IS, YOU WOULD HAVE LAUNCHED GOOGLE SKETCHUP.
YOU CLICK ON SOMETHING CALLED "GET VIEW."
YOU HAVE TO HAVE GOOGLE EARTH AND SKETCHUP RUNNING
AT THE SAME TIME.
IN SKETCHUP, YOU CLICK "GET VIEW," AND WHATEVER THE VIEW
IS IN EARTH, IT WILL PULL THAT INTO SKETCHUP, THEN YOU CAN
CLICK TERRAIN, SO IF THERE'S ANY TERRAIN LIKE A MOUNTAIN,
IT WILL DO THAT, AND THEN YOU CAN BUILD YOUR MODEL.
OR IF YOU'VE ALREADY GOT IT BUILT, YOU CAN PLACE IT.
THE BUILDINGS ALL HAVE TO BE AT GROUND LEVEL FOR THAT AREA
SO THAT IT'S NOT FLOATING, OR NOT SUNK INTO THE GROUND.
AND THEN IT GOES UP FOR REVIEW, AND THEY'RE PRETTY
FAST ABOUT REVIEWING NOW.
IT'S USUALLY ABOUT 3 DAYS, WHEREAS BEFORE IT WAS
A COUPLE OF WEEKS.
WE'VE HAD AGAIN, WE'VE HAD THE MAIN BUILDING,
THIS BUILDING, AND THE REST OF THE BUNGALOWS.
THEY'VE BEEN REJECTED AT LEAST A DOZEN TIMES.
[LAUGHTER]
BUT I ALWAYS USE THAT AGAIN, YOU KNOW, YOU LEARN FROM YOUR
TRIALS RATHER THAN YOUR TRIBUTES.
AND SO I ALWAYS TELL THE STUDENTS,
"OK, WHY WAS IT REJECTED?"
A LOT OF TIMES, IT'S INCOMPLETE PHOTO TEXTURING,
OR WHAT'S CALLED "Z FIGHTING," WHICH MEANS THAT YOU HAVE
TWO PLANES THAT ARE CROSSED, AS OPPOSED TO CONNECTED.
AND SO WHEN YOU MOVE IT, IT SHIMMERS.
THAT'S ONE OF THE BIG, BIG THINGS BIG NO NO'S.
SO I HAVE THE STUDENTS GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD.
BUT, YOU KNOW, WE'RE WORKING ON THE REST OF THE CAMPUS.
I GOT A TEAM OF STUDENTS TO WORK WITH ME THIS YEAR.
- SO THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A COMPUTER ROOM INSIDE, AS WELL?
- OH, YOU'RE BEING [INDISTINCT].
[LAUGHTER]
YES, THAT WAS ONE OF THE THINGS
- THAT'S COOL.
- WHICHI'M SURPRISED IT GOT ACCEPTED.
YOU'LL NOTICE THROUGH THE WINDOWS HERE, WE'VE
GOT...THERE WE GO.
- OH, MY GOD.
- THE DESKS AND THE COMPUTERS.
- THERE'S MY HIGH SCHOOL ROOM.
- COOL.

- SOAND THEN THAT LEADS ME TO ONE OTHER THING I'LL SHARE
WITH YOU GUYS WITH THIS BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO THE NEXT LAYER.
AND THEN AFTER THAT, WE'LL GO INTO THE CREATION OF CONTENT.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE PROJECTS THAT I DO WITH THISSO ALL
OF MY ART FOLKS IN HERE, IF YOU USE SKETCHUP, YOU'RE
GOING TO USE SKETCHUP, OR TEACH ANYTHING THAT IS
ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN OR 3-D DESIGN, I GIVE MY STUDENTS,
OR AT LEAST MY ADVANCED STUDENTS,
THE FOLLOWING PROJECT.
IT'S A MAJOR ACTUALLY, SEVERAL.
I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS TWO OF THEM.
ONE IS A MAJOR COMPREHENSIVE PROJECT.
THEY HAVE TO STUDY THE 5 THEMES OF GEOGRAPHY, SO NOW
I'M INCORPORATING GEOGRAPHY.
THEY HAVE TO IDENTIFY A CLIMATE OR HABITAT.
SO NOW WE'RE GETTING INTO SCIENCE ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE.
SO LET'S SAY WE CHOOSE ANTARCTICA.
THEY HAVE TO GO TO A SPECIFIC LOCATION IN ANTARCTICA
IN GOOGLE EARTH AND BRING THAT VIEW INTO SKETCHUP.
AND IF THERE'S ANY HILLS, OR WHAT HAVE YOU, THEY HAVE TO
ENABLE THE TERRAIN.
AND THEN THEY HAVE TO BUILD A SHELTER THAT IS APPROPRIATE
FOR THAT PARTICULAR CLIMATE.
NO POWER, JUST A SHELTER.
SO FOR EXAMPLE, I HAVE STUDENTS THAT BUILD SHELTERS
IN THE SAHARA DESERT.
ONE OF THEM BUILT A SHELTER AND HAD WINDOWS FACING THE SOUTH.
- UH-OH.
- YOU GUYS GET WHERE I'M GOING WITH THAT ONE?
- NO.
- AND I SAID, "WHY WOULD YOU BUILD WINDOWS FACING THE SOUTH?"
GO BACK INTO GOOGLE EARTH AND TELL ME WHAT IS SOUTH OF WHERE
YOUR SHELTER IS.
YOU GUYS WANT TO GUESS?
IF WE'RE IN NORTHERN AFRICA IN THE SAHARA DESERT.

- MAYBE THEY WANTED TO HAVE SUNLIGHT IN THERE FIRST.

- ALL RIGHT.

I WANT TO SHOW YOU GUYS...

AH, THERE WE GO.

WE'RE UP HERE IN THE SAHARA DESERT.
WHAT IS SOUTH OF US?
- THE EQUATOR. - THE EQUATOR.
AND WHAT GETS THE MOST SUNLIGHT ON AVERAGE
THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?
THE EQUATOR.
12 HOURS OF SUNLIGHT, 12 HOURS OF DARKNESS.
SO IF I BUILD A SHELTER IN THE DESERT AND I HAVE WINDOWS
FACING SOUTH, THEN I AM BEING EXPOSED TO MORE OF WHAT THAT
YOU WERE SHELTERING ME FROM IN THE FIRST PLACE?
- THE HOT SUN. - THE SUN, CORRECT.
SO THAT'S ONE OF THE BIG PROJECTS I GIVE MY STUDENTS.
THEY HAVE TO DESIGN A SHELTER.
THE NEXT THING THEY DO IS, THEY THEN RE-EXPORT IT BACK
INTO GOOGLE EARTH, SAVE THE [INDISTINCT] FILE,
EMAIL IT TO ME, AND THEN I PUT THEM ALL IN THE FOLDER,
WHICH I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS WHEN WEWE HAVE
[INDISTINCT] HOW TO DO THAT.
PUT THEM ALL IN A FOLDER, AND THEN I HAVE AN ENTIRE
GOOGLE EARTH FILE, IF YOU WILL, OF ALL THE SHELTERS
OF MY STUDENTS PER CLASS GRADE.
AND THEN THEY HAVE TO WRITE UP IN GOOGLE DOCS AN ANALYSIS
OF WHERE IT IS, THE GPS COORDINATES, WHY THEY BUILT
IT, HOW IT SHELTERS YOU, AND WHAT ELEMENT IT'S
SHELTERING YOU FROM.
SO IN THE CASE OF THE STUDENTS THAT DO THE SHELTER
IN ANTARCTICA, JUST LIKE I SHOWED YOU GUYS THIS, SOME
OF THEM WILL BUILD A SHELTER WITH A FLAT ROOF.
WHY IS THAT BAD IN ANTARCTICA?
- SNOW.
- THAT'S RIGHT.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS STADIUM?
- YEAH!
[LAUGHTER]
- YES.
SO AGAIN, IT'S INCORPORATING YOU KNOW, AGAIN, I'M DOING
MULTIPLE CURRICULAR AREAS IN ONE PROJECT.
THE ENGLISH COMPONENT IS THEIR WRITE-UP, THE SCIENCE COMPONENT
IS THE SHELTER ITSELF, AS WELL AS THE MICROCLIMATE OR
THE HABITAT.
THE GEOGRAPHY IS THE SOCIAL STUDIES COMPONENT OF IT.

ANOTHER PROJECT I HAVE THEM DO, YOU GUYS, IF YOU USE
SKETCHUP, IS, I MAKE THEM BUILD A HOUSE.
BUT THEY CAN'T JUST DO A HOUSE.
IT HAS TO HAVE CERTAIN CHARACTERISTICS.
OBVIOUSLY, A FRONT DOOR, A BACKDOOR, A MINIMUM OF ONE
BATHROOM, WHAT HAVE YOU.
THEY HAVE TO GEO-LOCATE THEIR HOUSE IN GOOGLE EARTH.
AND GETTING BACK TO THE FLAT ROOF, SOME STUDENTS WILL BUILD
A HOUSE IN A COLDER CLIMATE WITH A FLAT ROOF, AND THEN I
HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO THEM WHY YOU WOULDN'T WANT A FLAT ROOF.
THEN THEY HAVE TO GO ON ZILLOW AND LOOK UP THE AVERAGE OR THE
MEDIAN PRICE FOR HOMES THAT ARE COMPARABLE IN THAT AREA.
AND THEN IN END DESIGN, WHICH IS WHEN I DO USE IT, THEY HAVE TO
DESIGN AN ADVERTISEMENT TO SELL THEIR HOME.
AND THEN THAT INVOLVESAGAIN, I'M INCORPORATING MULTIPLE
CURRICULAR AREAS IN ONE PROJECT, BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO
WRITE IT UP, EXPLAIN ITS FEATURES, AND WHY SOMEONE
WOULD WANT TO PURCHASE THEIR HOME.
SO THAT IS INCORPORATING THE USE OF BOTH GOOGLE EARTH
AND SKETCHUP.
THOSE ARE TWO EXAMPLES OF PROJECTS.
- WHAT DID YOU DO TO DETERMINE THE LATITUDE
AND LONGITUDE?
- I'M SORRY?
- WHAT DID YOU DO TO DETERMINE THE LATITUDE
AND LONGITUDE?
- IT ISI'LL SHOW THE GRID.
SO IT'S HERE.
IT'S "VIEW GRID." [INDISTINCT].

- WHY DOES GOOGLE EARTH DO THIS THING WHERE
IT'S KIND OF
- IF YOU GET PIXILATED IMAGERY, IT'S BECAUSE ONE
OF TWO THINGSOR ONE OF 3 THINGS.
EITHER THE GRAPHICS PART IS NOT SUFFICIENT FOR IT
ON THE COMPUTER, WHICHI DOUBT THAT'S THE CASE FOR THESE.
THE SATELLITE IMAGERY IS NOT COMPLETE, SO THEY JUST GIVE
YOU WHAT YOU GOT, WHICH IS USUALLY THE MAIN THING THAT
HAPPENS WITH THAT.
- ARE YOU GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE [INDISTINCT] TIMELINE?
- NOT YET. NOT YET.

OK.
ALL RIGHT.
- ARE WE GOING TO DO A BREAK AT ALL?
- YOU KNOW, I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT THAT BECAUSE I
WANT TO GO INTO THE INSERTION OF [INDISTINCT]
FILES AND THEN CONTENT.
YOU GUYS WANT TO TAKE A QUICK BATHROOM BREAK?
- YES.
- I'M GLAD YOU BROUGHT THAT UP THANK YOU.
THERE'S COFFEE BACK HERE IF YOU NEED...

SO IF YOU GUYS SUBSCRIBE TO IF YOU HAVE, LIKE, A RSS READER,
YOU MAY WANT TO SUBSCRIBE TO THAT.

AND THEN HOPEFULLY EVERYBODY'S HAND GOES UP.
DOES ANYONE HERE USE TWITTER?

- I DO.
- OK, THEY HAVE... - [LAUGHTER]
- IF YOUR HAND ISN'T UP, IT SHOULD BE.
I AM A HUGE ADVOCATE FOR THE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA
TO MAKE PROFESSIONAL CONNECTIONS
TO BUILD A PROFESSIONAL LEARNING NETWORK.

I HAVE BEEN ON TWITTER NOW FOR DECEMBER
I'VE BEEN ON TWITTER FOR 4 YEARS NOW.
- HAVE YOU USED TWEETBLOG?
- ANDI'M SORRY?
- HAVE YOU USED TWEETBLOG?
- THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE INTERFACES.
I USE TWEETDECK. BUT MY POINT IN SHARING THAT THERE YOU GO.
FOLLOW US ON TWITTER. MY POINT IN THAT IS THAT
A LOT OF TIMES, IF I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT SOMETHING
AND I POST IT ON TWITTER,
BECAUSE I FOLLOW A TON OF EDUCATORS LITERALLY AROUND THE WORLD,
USUALLY, I'LL GET AN ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION
PROBABLY IN LESS THAN A MINUTE.

SO...AND I POST A LOT, TOO. IT'S A COMMUNITY, IF YOU WILL.
BUT ANYWAY, IF YOU'RE NOT ON IT,
YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER GOING ON IT,
AND USUALLY THE THING PEOPLE SAY IS,
"WELL, I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY."
IT'S OK, BUT THERE MIGHT BE THAT ONE TIME THAT YOU DO,
AND MOST OF THE USAGE IS CONSUMPTION RATHER THAN
PUBLISHING OF CONTENT, ANYWAY, SO AT ANY RATE, THOUGH,
THAT'S THE BLOG FOR THE GEO APPS FOR GOOGLE,
AND ONE OF THE THINGS THEY HAVE THAT'S COOL
IS THIS, THAT YOU GUYS CAN PLAY WITH.
IN MAPS, YOU CAN SEND HOLIDAY CHEER FOR DIRECTIONS.
SO IF YOU ARE GIVING A HOLIDAY PARTY,
NOT ONLY CAN YOU SEND THE LINK TO THE MAP,
BUT YOU CAN KIND OF SNAZZY UP THE MAP A LITTLE BIT.
- OH, MY GOD.
- SO, LIKE, YOUR PARTY THAT YOU'RE GOING TO,
IF YOU WERE SENDING PEOPLE DIRECTIONS HERE'S A LINK TO THE MAP
YOU CAN ADD A LITTLE HOLIDAY CHEER TO IT.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT GOOGLE DOES A LOT OF IS
AND THEN WE'LL GET BACK INTO THE THING
IS THEY HAVE THIS CONCEPT CALLED 20% TIME,
AND BASICALLY, WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT
THEY WANT ALL OF THEIR EMPLOYEES TO SPEND 20% OF THEIR TIME
ON A PET PROJECT OF THEIR OWN DOING.
SO I WOULD SAY AT LEAST 75%
OF THE GOOGLE CONSUMPTION AS A CONSUMER THAT WE GET
IS BASED ON SOMEBODY'S 20% TIME,
NOT GOOGLE SPECIFICALLY ALLOCATING A TASK.
SO IF AN EMPLOU SAYS, "I USE GMAIL ALL THE TIME
"AND YOU KNOW WHAT, I GOT AN IDEA
THAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER,"
GOOGLE SAYS, "OK, GOOD. TAKE 20% OF YOUR TIME AND DO IT."

THAT'S WHY THERE'S A SECTION IN GOOGLE
WHICH YOU GUYS CAN GO TO.
IT'S GOOGLE.COM/LABS.
GO TO GOOGLE LABS. THAT'S LIKE GOOGLE SANDBOX.
YOU'LL SEE THINGS IN THERE, AND IF YOU GO A WEEK LATER,
SOMETIMES THINGS WILL BE GONE.
SOMETIMES THINGS WILL BE ADDED.
SOMETIMES THINGS STAY IN ALPHA OR BETA PHASE
FOR A YEAR OR LONGER.
IN FACT, GMAIL WAS IN BETA
I WANT TO SAY UP UNTIL LAST YEAR.

SO THEY'RE ALWAYS TRYING OUT NEW STUFF.
SO IN A CASE FOR THE SAKE OF WHAT WE'RE DOING THIS EVENING,
THIS BLOG IS USEFUL IN THAT ANYTIME SOMETHING NEW COMES UP
OR SOMEBODY ADDED SOMETHING, LIKE IN THIS CASE
FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON,
YOU'LL GET THIS.

WITH RESPECT TO SKETCHUP AND EARTH,
TWO YEARS AGO, THEY HAD A COMPETITION CALLED
BUILD A BETTER BRIDGE,
SO...IN FACT WHY DON'T I RATHER THAN TALK ABOUT IT,
LET ME DO THIS.
SO THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF BUILD A BETTER BRIDGE, OR BUILD A BRIDGE, WAS THE FOLLOWING.

I ONLY HAD A FEW OF MY STUDENTS DO IT
BECAUSE THE COMPETITION WAS ANNOUNCED LATE SPRING,
WHICH, IF YOU GUYS KNOW A LOT ABOUT
PRIMARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION,
LATE SPRING IS A BIG NO-NO BECAUSE...
- TESTING. - TESTING.
- OHOH, YEAH.
- ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS READ THE PAPER.
- THAT'S RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT. SO. ACTUALLY, LET ME DO IT THIS WAY.

[INDISTINCT] GROUND LEVEL.

WE ARE LOOKING AT WHAT FAMOUS BRIDGE?
- GOLDEN GATE. - GOLDEN GATE.
- SO THE WAY THE BRIDGE COMPETITION WORKED,
AND AGAIN, THIS CAN HELP ANY OF YOU
IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA THAT YOU INCORPORATE
THE USE OF GOOGLE EARTH AND SKETCHUP.
THE WAY THE BRIDGE COMPETITION WORKED IS YOU WOULD DO THIS.
YOU WOULD GO THIS PARTICULAR VIEW, RIGHT CLICK,
HIDE THE BUILDING...

THEN GO TO SKETCHUP, GET VIEW, TERRAIN,
AND NOW YOU BUILD A BRIDGE.

THAT MAKE SENSE?
- HOW DID YOU DO [INDISTINCT]
YOU RIGHT-CLICK ON THE IMAGE, HIDE BUILDING.
- BUT DO YOU HAVE TO BE A
- AND SO THEN WHAT YOU WOULD DO IS,
YOU'RE IN EARTH AND SKETCHUP.

GOOGLE HAS THEY CALL IT THE GEO APPS, WHICH ARE
GEO APPS ARE MAPS, EARTH, AND SKETCHUP.
AND SO EARTH AND SKETCHUP WORK TOGETHER A LOT.
MAPS IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT,
WHICH WE'LL GET INTO A LITTLE OF THAT IN JUST A LITTLE BIT,
BUT IF GOOGLE SKETCHUP WERE INSTALLED ON THIS MACHINE,
I WOULD GO INTO YOU KNOW WHAT? IS SKETCHUP ON THESE?
- [INDISTINCT]
- IT IS NOT?

- [INDISTINCT]
- [INDISTINCT]
- NO, IT'S NOT. OK, WELL, IN GOOGLE SKETCHUP,
THERE'S A MENU AT THE TOP THAT SAYS "GET VIEW,"
AND THAT'S WHERE IT PULLS IN LIKE THIS,
A VIEW FROM GOOGLE EARTH,
AND THEN IF YOU CLICK ON "TERRAIN,"
IF THERE'S ANY HILLS OR MOUNTAINS OR WHAT HAVE YOU,
IT WILL MAKE THOSE, RENDER IT IN SKETCHUP,
AND THEN YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO BUILD A BRIDGE
ACROSS, YOU KNOW, THIS SPAN.

- SO THE LITTLE TOOLS THAT ARE UP AT THE VERY TOP THERE,
[INDISTINCT]
- NO. WE'RE GONNA USE THESE IN JUST A LITTLE BIT
AS FAR AS CREATING OUR CONTENT WITHIN GOOGLE EARTH.

ALL RIGHT, SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU GUYS TO DO NOW
IS WE'RE GONNA WORK WITH SOME CONTENT
THAT'S ALREADY BEEN CREATED.
SO ON THE SESSION OUTLINE, IF YOU WILL SCROLL DOWN
AND DOWNLOAD "THE GRAPES OF WRATH."

AND SAVE THE FILE TO THE DESKTOP.

SO WHERE I AM IS I'M ON A SESSION OUTLINE FROM OUR AGENDA.
AT THE BOTTOM, I HAVE A BUNCH OF ATTACHMENTS.
IN THIS CASE, "GRAPES OF WRATH."
NOW I'LL TELL YOU GUYS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS
BEFORE WE REALLY GET INTO IT.
VERY CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE HIS NAME IS JEROME BURKE.
HE TAUGHT ENGLISH IN LIVERMORE UP NORTH FOR 20+ YEARS.
HE'S ALSO A GOOGLE-CERTIFIED TEACHER.
HE GOTIS ANYONE HERE A CUE MEMBER?
[INDISTINCT] CUE?
REALLY? WOW. OK.
THAT'S A STATEWIDE AFFILIATE TO ISTE.
YOU GUYS FAMILIAR WITH ISTE? INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR TECHNOLOGY IN EDUCATION?

THEIR BIG CONFERENCE USED TO BE CALLED NECC
NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL COMPUTING CONFERENCE? NO?
OK. WHAT IT IS, IT ISISTE IS
INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR TECHNOLOGY IN EDUCATION.
CUE IS A CALIFORNIA AFFILIATE TO THAT.
SO, LIKE, I'M ON THE BOARD FOR CUE L.A.,
WHICH IS A L.A. AFFILIATE, CUE,
AND I ACTUALLY JUST SUBMITTED MY MATERIALS
TO RUN FOR THE CUE BOARD.

JEROME GOT A FELLOWSHIP THROUGH CUE FOR THIS PROJECT.
THIS IS GOOGLE LIT TRIPS, AND WHAT GOOGLE LIT TRIPS IS
IS TAKE A BOOK, LIKE WE'RE GONNA DO WITH "GRAPES OF WRATH,"
ANY STORY THAT INVOLVES TIME,
TRAVEL OVER DISTANCES, OR GEOGRAPHY,
CAN BE A GOOGLE LIT TRIP.
MOST OF THE GOOGLE LIT TRIPS IN HERE
ARE TEACHER- AND PREFERABLY STUDENT-CREATED,
THAT HAS BEEN SENT IN, VETTED, AND THEN ADDED TO HIS WEB SITE.
SO IN THE CASE OF WHAT WE JUST DOWNLOADED
IS "GRAPES OF WRATH."
NOW, WHO IN HERE HAS READ "GRAPES OF WRATH"?
PROBABLY MOST OF US. IT'S ALMOST CLASSIC REQUIRED READING,
BUT I LOVED THE BOOK.
YOU GUYS NOTICE HIGHER ED IS ON THERE, TOO.
OK, SO.

DOWNLOADED "GRAPES OF WRATH."

- WHERE'D IT GO? - WHERE'D IT GO?
- DOWNLOAD. - OH, HERE IT IS.
IT WAS IN DOWNLOADS. OK?
I'M GONNA DRAG THIS TO GOOGLE EARTH
TO OPEN IT IN GOOGLE EARTH.

AND IF YOU'LL NOTICE, IN MY PLACES,
I NOW HAVE "THE GRAPES OF WRATH."
AND THIS TAKES YOU THROUGH THE ENTIRE STORY
FROM OKLAHOMA...
- OH, MY GOODNESS.

- FROM OKLAHOMA TO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA.

- YOU JUST DRAGGED IT ONTO THE GOOGLE EARTH WINDOW?
- JUST DRAGGED IT ONTO THE GOOGLE EARTH ICON IN THE DOCK
AND IT WILL OPEN IT IN HERE.
- AH. OK.
- DRAG WHICH THING?
- THE FILE.
- THE [INDISTINCT] THING OR
- THIS. THE KMZ FILE.
DRAG THAT TO THE GOOGLE EARTH ICON
AND THEN WE'LL OPEN IT IN GOOGLE EARTH.
IT'LL APPEAR IN YOUR PLACES.
OK? IF YOU GOTOH.
OK, IF YOU GUYS WILL REMEMBER
WHEN WE DID A SEARCH [INDISTINCT] DIRECTIONS,
THAT APPEARS UP HERE.
ANYTHING THAT WE CREATE OR IMPORT
IS GOING TO APPEAR HERE.
AND SEE, EVEN THE MUSEUM ACTUALLY APPEARED ON TEMPORARY PLACES
BECAUSE I ACTUALLY CLICKED ON IT AND WENT INTO THE PROJECT.
SO I HAVE "THE GRAPES OF WRATH" STORY HERE,
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, AND ESPECIALLY FOR STUDENTS
WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH... THEY'RE NOT ABLE TO...

WHAT'S THE WORD I'M LOOKING FOR?
THEY DON'T HAVE PERSPECTIVE ON THE DISTANCE.
SO IF THEY'RE READING A STORY, YOU KNOW,
THEY'RE THINKING, "AH, YES, THIS FAMILY,
THEY TRAVEL OUT TO CALIFORNIA FROM OKLAHOMA."
BUT WHEN YOU PUT IT HERE AND YOU SAY,
"OK, WELL, WAIT A MINUTE.
OKLAHOMA ISN'T RIGHT OVER THE HILL,"
THEN YOU'RE GOING THROUGH THE STORY AND ALL
THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF THE FAMILY ALONG THE WAY,
WELL, NOW THAT STORY TAKES ON A WHOLE DIFFERENT MEANING,
BECAUSE YOU HAVE A PERSPECTIVE FOR THE STUDENT TO SEE
THE DISTANCE THAT WAS TRAVELED [INDISTINCT]

SO I'LL GO TO McALESTER, WHICH IS CHAPTER ONE.
AND SO AGAIN, HERE'S A COOL THING.
WE'RE ZOOMING IT'S ZOOMING IN TO McALESTER,
AND SO NOW... THAT'S THE THERE WE GO.
SO NOW WE HAVE LINKS TO SOME SONY VIDEO OF A DUST STORM,
SO IF WE'RE READING ABOUT A DUST STORM.
OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE IN CALIFORNIA.
I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW OF ANY KIDS THAT WILL SAY,
"OH, I KNOW WHAT A DUST STORM IS."
BUT YOU ASK THEM IN OKLAHOMA, YOU BETTER BELIEVE
THEY'RE GONNA KNOW WHAT A DUST STORM IS.
SO NOW YOU'VE GOT LINKS TO THAT,
AND HERE'S JUST SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE STORY.

AND THAT'S GOOGLE LIT TRIPS.
HE HAS A TON OF THINGS IN THE LIBRARY.

THERE IS "THE ILIAD," AND "THE ODYSSEY" IS IN THERE.
"MY BROTHER SAM"ANYBODY IN HERE READ "MY BROTHER SAM"?
IT'S A WAR STORY? NO?
OH, WELL, THAT'S IN GOOGLE LIT TRIPS.

- WHAT DID YOU CLICK ON TO GET THAT LITTLE WINDOW OPEN?
- WELL, YOU CAN CLICK ON THE PLACE MARK ITSELF...
- OH, OK. - OR WHAT I DID TO ACTUALLY ZOOM INTO IT WAS
I DOUBLE-CLICKED ON THE LINK.

- [INDISTINCT] OH, OVER ON THE SIDE BAR.

- AND, YOU KNOW, YOU'VE GOT PLACE MARKS ALONG THE WAY.

FULL CONTENT FOR STUDENTS TO INTERACT WITH.

AND IF I GO TO THE FIRST SPOT,
I CAN ACTUALLY CLICK "PLAY" DOWN HERE.

SO THAT IS FROM GOOGLE LIT TRIPS.

THERE ARE LINKS TO ON OUR OUTLINE,
THERE ARE LINKS IN THE RESOURCES...

TO TONS OF OTHER...THIS ONE IS REALLY COOL, TOO
THE THOMAS [INDISTINCT] ONE, WHICH IS EXPEDITION LIT TRIPS,
WHICH COVERS DIFFERENT EXPEDITIONS OR WHAT HAVE YOU.
AND MY BUDDY RICHARD BYRNE, HIS BLOG
YOU GUYS SHOULD IT MIGHT NOT BE USEFUL FOR YOU GUYS,
OR IT MIGHT THIS BLOG IS CALLED "FREE TECH FOR TEACHERS."
FANTASTIC BLOG. HE'S ALWAYS POSTING CONTENT ON THERE
OF RESOURCES OR APPLICATIONS THAT ARE FREE FOR EDUCATION.
HE VETS EVERYTHING BEFORE IT ENDS UP ON HIS BLOG.
- LIKE, THE GUY WHO DID THE LIT TRIP FOR "THE GRAPES OF WRATH."
HOW LONG DO YOU THINK IT TOOK TO BUILD THAT?
- UM, IT DEPENDS, BUT I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.
MY BUDDY ANDY IN MICHIGAN,
HIS STUDENTS HAVE DONE SEVERAL ELEMENTARY LIT TRIPS,
AND IT TAKES NO LONGER FOR THEM TO DO THAT
THAN IT DOES FOR THEM TO READ THE BOOK,
BECAUSE THEY'RE DOING IT ONGOING.
SO IF YOU FIGURE IF I'M TEACHING A CLASS THAT DO A LIT TRIP,
YOU TWO ARE ASSIGNED CHAPTER ONE.
THEY'RE ASSIGNED TO CHAPTER TWO, CHAPTER 3, CHAPTER 4, 5, 6, 7.

YOU TWO READ THE CHAPTER. WRITE UP A SUMMARY.
DO A KWL CHART, SO WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT IT?
BASED ON WHAT YOU READ, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU WANT TO KNOW
AND WHAT DID YOU LEARN? OK?
AND THEN HAVE SOME ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS FROM IT.
YOU NOW TAKE THAT CONTENT AND THEN
YOU WILL DO A PLACE MARK.
I CAN EITHER HAVE YOU SEND ME THAT FILE,
HAVE EVERYONE SEND IT TO ME, THEN I CAN COMPILE IT TOGETHER,
WHICH I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS IN A FOLDER,
I NOW HAVE MY LIT TRIP,
OR WE CAN KIND OF ALL WORK TOGETHER IN THE SAME [INDISTINCT]
BUT THAT'S HOW HE DID HIS STUFF.
AND SO NOW, EVEN THOUGH YOU DID CHAPTER ONE,
BY THE TIME WE'RE ALL FINISHED, WE WILL REVIEW THE BOOK,
BUT WE'LL DO IT THIS WAY.
SO NOW YOU'RE GONNA GET THE SAME
OR SIMILAR CONTENT FOR THE OTHER CHAPTERS
WITH THE QUESTIONS.

AND IT'S NOIT WAS NO SLOWER
IT DIDN'T TAKE ANY MORE TIME
THAN WHEN HE JUST HAS HIS STUDENTS READ THE BOOK.

BUT WHICH IS GONNA BE MORE FUN?
- [INDISTINCT]
- AND WHO SAID LEARNING CAN'T BE FUN?
AND IN THE CASE WITH HIM, FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS,
WHICH ONE ARE THEY MORE LIKELY TO BE MOTIVATED TO DO?
- HA HA HA! - AND WHAT I FIND USEFUL
IN STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY, BUT EVEN IN ADULTS.
IF YOU PUBLISH CONTENT THAT IS HIGH QUALITY
THAT YOU KNOW IS GONNA BE CONSUMED BY A LOT OF PEOPLE,
NOT ONLY DOES IT INCREASE YOUR MOTIVATION TO DO IT,
BUT YOU ARE A LOT MORE CAREFUL
ABOUT THE QUALITY OF WHAT YOU DO AS WELL.
SO IN THE CASE WITH ANDY, HIS STUDENTS,
ONCE IT GOT PUBLISHED, OF COURSE THEY'RE LIKE,
"OH, WE GOTTA DO MORE."
AND THEN FOR SUMMER, SUMMER SCHOOL,
EVEN THOUGH HIS FOURTH GRADERS, THEY WERE ALL IN FIFTH GRADE,
THOUGHT, "HEY, LET'S WORK ON ONE
SO THAT WHEN SCHOOL STARTS, WE CAN PUBLISH ANOTHER ONE."

SO AGAIN, I HAVE LINKS TO AMPLE RESOURCES HERE ON THIS PAGE... THAT YOU CAN GO TO.
IN FACT, I'M GONNA ADD MORE,
BECAUSE I'VE GOT MORE FROM OTHER FRIENDS OF MINE.
ANOTHER ONE THAT I LIKE, THAT INCORPORATES
THE USE OF MAPS,
IS THIS ONE.
AND WHAT THIS DOES IS...
IF YOU HAVE A TEENAGER THAT WANTS TO VISIT
A SCHOOL THAT THEY MIGHT GO TO,
YOU CAN EITHER SPEND A FORTUNE
ON THE AIRFARE AND LODGING AND WHAT HAVE YOU,
OR YOU CAN GO TO THIS WEB SITE,
AND IF YOU CLICK "START SEARCHING"
AND TYPE IN, LIKE, "PASADENA CITY COLLEGE,"
YOU'LL GET A WHOLE BREAKDOWN OF THE SCHOOL, THE LOCATION...

IN FACT, OK, IF YOU GUYS WANT TO, YOU CAN TRY IT.
E-G-I-A-T-E. EGIATE, OR EGIATE, .COM.
E-G-I-A-T-E.COM.

SO IF I DO...START SEARCHING AND I'LL DO...

PASADENA CITY COLLEGE. SEE?
AND SO NOW THEY HAVE THE GOOGLE EARTH API
EMBEDDED INTO THE WEB SITE.
IT'S GONNA ZOOM INTO PCC,
AND OVER HERE, I GET LITERALLY
A FULL BREAKDOWN OF THE UNIVERSITY
AND IT DOES A LITTLE TOUR OF THE CAMPUS.

- HOW DO YOU SEARCH FOR [INDISTINCT]
- NO. UNCOVER YOUR SCHOOL. YOU JUST TYPE IN THERE.

AND YOU SEE THE OTHER INFORMATION
TAKE A TOUR OF THE CAMPUS, HOW TO GET THERE,
AND WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE SCHOOL.

THAT'S JUST ANOTHER RESOURCE FOR YOU, IF YOU WILL.

AND THEN ONE OTHER THING REAL QUICK
BEFORE WE GO INTO CREATION OF OUR OWN CONTENT.

A LITTLE EXTRA FOR YOU GUYS.

WE GO BACK TO GOOGLE'S MAIN PAGE.

I'LL PREFACE WHAT I'M GONNA SHOW YOU GUYS NOW
AND TELL YOU THAT I COULD LITERALLY SPEND
6 HOURS DOING A WORKSHOP WITH YOU GUYS ON GOOGLE SEARCH ALONE.

I'VE DONE 6-HOUR WORKSHOPS ON SEARCH.
- [LAUGHTER] - DONE 3-HOUR WORKSHOPS
AND WHAT HAVE YOU.
BUT WHAT I WANT TO SHOW YOU GUYS MORE SPECIFICALLY
IS THE FOLLOWING,
BECAUSE WE'RE DOING GOOGLE EARTH.

WHEN I CLICK ON "ADVANCED SEARCH" OVER HERE...

HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE USED ADVANCED SEARCH?

OK. A FEW OF YOU.
MORE SPECIFICALLY, WHAT'S THE FILE TYPE
THAT WE USE FOR GOOGLE EARTH? KM...
- KM... - KML OR KMZ?
- KMZ. - I CAN NOW SEARCH
UNDER "FILE TYPE" FOR KML OR KMZ FILES.
NOW, THE CATCH WITH THIS IS IT WILL BE LIMITED
BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO BE PUBLISHED ONLINE SOMEWHERE,
BUT IF YOU SAY, "I WONDER IF THERE'S
A GOOGLE EARTH FILE FOR BLANK,"
YOU CAN DO A SEARCH HERE TO FIND OUT.

AND JUST A LITTLE HELPFUL HINT FOR YOU GUYS,
THE OTHER FILE TYPES HERE ARE .DOC, WORD DOCUMENTS,
.PPT, POWERPOINT, PDFs.
THIS, I THINK, IS THE MOST VALUABLE THING IN GOOGLE SEARCH.
SEARCHING BY FILE TYPE.

I KNOW MANY EDUCATORS THAT USED TO DESIGN
ALL OF THEIR POWERPOINTS FROM SCRATCH
FOR EVERY UNIT THAT THEY WOULD DO UNTIL I SHOWED THEM THIS.
- [LAUGHTER]
- NOW THEY DON'T DO IT.
THEY FIND SOMETHING, CLEAN IT UP,
ADD RELEVANT CONTENT TO THE STANDARDS,
AND NOW THEY HAVE A POWERPOINT.

SO ANYWAY, FOR THE SAKE OF WHAT WE'RE DOING,
YOU CAN DO A SPECIFIC FILE TYPE SEARCH
FOR KML OR KMZ FILES.
- AND WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE TWO?
- I'M SORRY? - WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KMZ AND KML?
- KMZ IS A ZIPPED KML FILE.
- OH, OK, OK.

- NOW, ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS
ISWELL, ACTUALLY, WHY DON'T WE DO THIS?

I'M GOING TO REMOVE...

FOR HOMEWORK FOR YOU GUYS IS THE FOLLOWING.

WATCH NOT HOMEWORK, BUT LET ME SHOW YOU GUYS ONE OTHER THING.

WHEN YOU GUYS ARE TALKING ABOUT CONTRIBUTING
CONTRIBUTIONS OF CONTENT,
THERE'S ANOTHER THING THAT I GOT THE EQUIPMENT FOR,
AND IT'S PROBABLY WHAT THEY USE FOR
THE ARTWORK THAT YOU SAW IN THE PRADO.
YOU GUYS EVER HEARD OF THE GIGAPAN OR GIGAPXL PHOTOS?
- MM-HMM. YES.
- I'VE GOT TWO YESONE YES? ONE.
OK. TWO. OK. SO THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVEN'T,
WHAT A GIGAPAN OR GIGAPXL PHOTO IS,
THERE'S THIS EQUIPMENT.
I HAVE THE GIGAPAN EPIC PRO,
AND WHAT IT IS, IS YOU SET IT UP ON A TRIPOD,
PUT YOUR CAMERA ON IT,
YOU PUNCH IN THE DEGREE OF ANGLE AND DEGREE OF HEIGHT,
AND IT WILL LITERALLY TAKE PHOTOS OF THAT WHOLE THING
AND STITCH THEM TOGETHER SO THAT EACH FINISHED PRODUCT PHOTO
IS ONE GIGABYTE.

SO THEY'RE ALL ULTRA HIGH RES PHOTOS.
IF WE WERE TO GO TO NEW YORK, WHICH I'LL DO IN A SECOND,
YOU WILL SEE SOME.
IF YOU GO TO LOS ANGELES, I'VE ONLY SEEN TWO.
- WOW.
- SO WHEN I'M ON BREAK, I FULLY INTEND, FIRST,
TO GO UP TO GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY AND SET IT UP
AND TRY TO GET A GIGAPAN PHOTO OF DOWNTOWN.

AND THEN I WILL CONTRIBUTE THAT TO THE GIGAPAN GALLERY,
AND HOPEFULLY IT'LL GET ACCEPTED INTO GOOGLE EARTH.
IF YOU GUYS FIGURE THAT THAT'S SOMETHING THAT'S USEFUL FOR YOU,
THE FOLKS THAT SELL THOSE DO HAVE AN EDUCATOR DISCOUNT.
I WROTE A GRANT TO GET MINE. THE EPIC PRO WAS 600 BUCKS.
- OOH. IT'S 895 [INDISTINCT]
- [LAUGHTER]

- IT'S NOT CHEAP, BUT...

I WANTED TO USE IT WITH MY STUDENTS AT SCHOOL
BECAUSE I TEACH THEM ABOUT, YOU KNOW, AGAIN,
DEGREES AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
BUT WHAT I'LL DO REAL QUICK IS I WILL ENABLE
BOTH GIGAPAN AND GIGAPXL, AND I'LLYOU KNOW WHAT?
I WONDER IF THERE'S ANY OF NEW YORK.
OR SAN FRANCISCO.

OH, YEAH. GOOD. [INDISTINCT]
OK. SO LET'S GO TO SO HERE YOU GO.
ULTRA HIGH RES ACTUALLY, NO,
THAT'S NOT THE ONE THAT I WANTED.

THERE'S ONE OF...

AND I KNOW THERE WAS ONE OF THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, BUT...

WHY DON'T WE DO THIS? SO ALTA PLAZA,
LOOKING SOUTHEAST TO SAN FRANCISCO.
AGAIN, JUST LIKE WITH THE PRADO MUSEUM,
YOU CAN ACTUALLY FLY INTO THE PHOTO.

AND SO I'M NOT ONLY IN THE PHOTO,
BUT BECAUSE IT'S ONE GIGABYTE, I CAN ZOOM IN.

- SOI'VE SEEN THOSE LITTLE
I'VE SEEN THOSE LITTLE PANORAMAS BEFORE,
SO THAT'S WHAT THAT IS WHEN YOU SEE THEM.
- WELL, YES WELL, YES AND NO.
THERE'S ACTUALLY ANOTHER THING THAT ISWELL, YES.
THERE'S THAT AND THEN THERE'S THIS RIGHT HERE,
WHICH I'LL SHOW YOU THAT BRFLY,
AND THEN I REALLY WANT TO DO A TOUR WITH YOU GUYS.
ALL RIGHT, SO WHAT I DID WAS, AGAIN, REMEMBER,
OVER HERE IN THE LAYERS, THIS IS WHERE YOU
MANIPULATE THE CONTENT THAT YOU WANT TO CONSUME
IN THE USER INTERFACE.
I HAVE ENABLED GIGAPAN AND GIGAPXL...

WHICH IS OVER IN GALLERY.
ONCE YOU CLICK ON THE LITTLE ICON,
IT WILL SHOW YOU A LOWER-RES RENDERING OF THE IMAGE,
BUT YOU CAN CLICK "FLY INTO HIGH RES."
IT WILL NOW ZOOM DOWN IN TO THE PERSPECTIVE
IN WHICH THE PHOTO WAS CAPTURED/
SO I'M ZOOMING IN, AND NOW WE'VE GOT THIS.
THIS IS THE VIEW ANDOH, THEY DIDN'T LOCK THEIR EXPOSURE.
- [LAUGHTER]

- THAT'S THE BAY BRIDGE.
BUT IF YOU'LL NOTICE, I CAN ZOOM PRETTY FAR INTO IT.

WELL, I CAN TELL YOU TWO THINGS.
NUMBER ONE, THE BETTER YOUR CAMERA,
THE BETTER THE IMAGE IS GONNA BE,
AND...IT IS PRETTY COOL, BECAUSE AGAIN, IF ANY OF YOU
ARE INTO PHOTOGRAPHY LIKE I AM,
IT'S COOL TO MAKE PHOTOS, PERIOD,
BUT ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
SO I WENT TO MANHATTAN, SO I'LL GO TOYEAH, THIS IS THE ONE.
SO REMEMBER WE DID 3-D BUILDINGS IN MANHATTAN,
BUT NOW WE'RE GOING INTO A GIGAPAN PHOTO
OFAND YOU GUYS SEE.
THIS IS A REGULAR VIEW,
AND YOU SEE HOW SMALL THE CARS LOOK,
BUT IF YOU'LL NOTICE I'LL EVEN ZOOM IN.

SEE? I MEAN, I'M ZOOMED IN BIG TIME ON THAT PHOTO.
GRANTED, IT'S DISTORTED A LITTLE BIT,
BUT IF YOU'LL NOTICE, I MEAN...

YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THIS AVAILABLE IN A GIGAPAN VIEW.

PEDAGOGICALLY, I THINK IT'S THE CREATION OF THE PHOTOS
I FIND MORE VALUE IN, BUT, YOU KNOW, AGAIN,
IF YOU'RE WORKING WITH STUDENTS
OR IF YOU'RE WORKING ON SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF,
NOWIF YOU'VE NEVER BEEN TO MANHATTAN,
LOOK AT ALL THE THINGS YOU HAVE AVAILABLE.
YOU HAVE 3-BUILDINGS TO GET A PERSPECTIVE,
IDEA OF WHAT IT'S LIKE THERE.
YOU HAVE GIGAPAN TO GET AN IDEA OF A REAL-TIME PHOTO
THAT WAS TAKEN THAT YOU CAN ZOOM INTO.

AND THEN I FORGOT TO SHOW YOU GUYS OR MENTION THAT
IF YOU HAVE 3-D BUILDINGS ENABLED,
YOU CAN ACTUALLY CLICK ON THE BUILDING
AND IT WILL GIVE YOU INFORMATION ABOUT THE BUILDING.

- [INDISTINCT] REGULAR PAN. - I'M SORRY?
- SO THEY'RE SHOOTING WITH A REGULAR PAN HE HAD AT GRIFFITH PARK
AND STITCHING THEM TOGETHER IN PANORAMA.
- YEAH. YOU CAN DO THAT. IT WON'T GET INTO THIS,
BECAUSE THE KEY THING WITH THESE IS
EACH PHOTO IS ONE GIGABYTE.
- RIGHT, RIGHT. - SONOW, THE OTHER COOL THING
IS THIS 360CITIES OVER HERE IN GALLERY.
SO IF I CLICK ON THAT, I CAN NOW GO
SEE, HERE'S BATTERY PARK, THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE,
BUT I CAN CLICK ON IT TO ZOOM EVEN IN ON THAT,
AND NOW I HAVE A 360-DEGREE VIEW OF THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE HERE...
- [LAUGHTER]
- AT BATTERY PARK.

- OH, MY GOD. - I DON'T THINK SHE WAS TOO HAPPY
ABOUT HAVING HER PHOTO TAKEN.

BUT I GUESS THE MAIN REASON WHY I'M SHARING THESE PARTICULAR ONES
AND AGAIN, WE COULD LITERALLY SPEND
EASILY OVER AN HOUR WITH THIS SCIENCE, EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANOES.
YOU'VE GOTTHE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC STUFF IS REALLY COOL,
BUT, YOU KNOW, FOR THE SAKE OF TIME,
I'D RATHER INTRODUCE YOU GUYS TO THIS
AND THEN YOU GUYS HAVE SOME TIME TO GO AND PLAY.
BUT MY MAIN POINT IN EVEN SHARING
MOST OF THIS STUFF WITH YOU
IS DID GOOGLE CREATE THIS CONTENT?
- NO. - NO.

USERS CREATED IT, AND IN SOME CASES,
IT WAS CREATED BY EDUCATORS.
SO THAT'S ONE WHERE, WHEN EDUCATORS SAY,
"WELL, I DON'T KNOW THAT I HAVE TIME TO DO BLANK,"
MY RESPONSE IS USUALLY, "DON'T TAKE THE TIME TO DO BLANK.
INTRODUCE YOUR STUDENTS TO IT AND THEN BECOME THE FACILITATOR."
WHEN THEY SEE WHAT WAS CREATED
BY OTHER STUDENTS OR OTHER PEOPLE,
THAT RIGHT THERE CAN BE MOTIVATION ALONE.

AND SO IN THE CASEI MEAN, YOU GUYS HAVE NOW SEEN CONTENT
THAT WAS DONE IN SKETCHUP, IN 3-D BUILDINGS,
THAT WAS DONE WITH THE GIGAPAN PHOTOS,
THAT'S DONE WITH 360S,
AND WE HAVEN'T EVEN ENABLED THIS RIGHT HERE PHOTOS,
WHICH IS JUST THE PHOTOS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN PANORAMIO.
SO IF I GO HEREI'LL REMOVE THAT, CLICK "PHOTOS"...

GO TO...

WE ARE RIGHT HERE, AND GUESS WHO POSTED THAT PHOTO?
- HEY!
- THAT IS MYMY GMAIL E-MAIL ADDRESS.

AND IT WAS UPLOADED INTO PANORAMIO.
I ACTUALLY TOOK THE PICTURE WITH MY iPHONE.
THERE'S A PANORAMIO APP.
IT WAS ALREADY GEO TAGGED.
I TITLED IT, POSTED IT.
ABOUT A WEEK LATER, THERE IT IS.
- OH, WOW.

- AND THAT WAS LITERALLY LIKE
RACHEL, DO YOU REMEMBER THE ROOM THAT WE WERE IN LAST TIME AROUND?
THAT'S LITERALLY RIGHT OUTSIDE THE DOOR.
YEAH, RIGHT OUTSIDE THE DOOR. YEAH.

- SO WHEN YOU'VE SEEN A PHOTO SOMEWHERE
LIKE, PINKY RED AND SOME ARE BLUE, WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
- WHICH - I'M JUST LOOKING AT ALL THE LITTLE PLATE MARKERS,
SO SOME OF THEM ARE THAT KIND OF RED [INDISTINCT]
- THE REDTHE RED IS THE CITY.
- NO, NO, NO. YOU SEE THESE LITTLE [INDISTINCT] RED?
- THAT I DO NOT KNOW. THAT'S NEW IN 6.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CLICK ON RED?
- UH...

- YOU'RE GETTING SEASICK.
- OH, IT'S ONE OF THOSE BUBBLY THINGS.

- OH, THAT'S RIGHT. [INDISTINCT]
- YEAH, SO THAT'S THE PANORAMA.
THAT MUST BE THE PANORAMA ONES.
- THE BLUE AND GREEN GUYS ARE THE FLATS
AND THE OTHERS ARE THE PANORAMAS.

- ALL RIGHT. SO WITH THAT BEING SAID,
LET'S DO THE FOLLOWING.

JUST BY A SHOW OF HANDS, HOW MANY OF YOU KNOW HTML CODING?

MOST OF YOU. OK.

SO WHAT I WANT TO DO WITH YOU GUYS AT THE MOMENT
ISIT'S TIME TO MAKE A PROJECT.

SO NOW YOU'RE GONNA CREATE YOUR OWN CONTENT FOR GOOGLE EARTH.
AND THE VERY FIRST THING THAT YOU NEED TO DO
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT YOUR ASSIGNMENTS ARE GONNA BE
AND THEN I'M GONNA COME AROUND AND HELP YOU WHEN I NEED TO.
I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO CREATE A 4-PLACE MARK FILE
IN 4 DIFFERENT CITIES, AND OF THE 4,
YOU HAVE TO INCLUDE AT LEAST ONE PHOTO AND EMBED ONE VIDEO.

USUALLY MY STUDENTS ARE LIKE, "OH, MAN."

- BUT YOU GUYS - SO 4 [INDISTINCT] - YES.
SO WE'RE GONNAI'M GONNA GO THROUGH THE STEPS
AND HELP AND THEN STEPS AND THEN HELP,
BUT WE'RE GONNA DOTHAT'S BASICALLY WHAT IT'S GONNA BE.
WE'RE GONNA CREATE CONTENT FOR GOOGLE EARTH.
WE'RE GONNA CREATE A TOUR, IF YOU WILL.
WE ACTUALLY HAVE TO RECORD THE TOUR.
WE'RE GONNA CREATE THE PLACE MARKS FIRST.
SO IT'S GONNA NEED TO BE IN 4 CITIES.

AT LEAST ONE HAS TO HAVE AN IMAGE,
WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE TO HAVE WHICH I'LL SHOW YOU
THERE'S A LINK TO AN HTML REFERENCE ON THERE,
BECAUSE IT'S THE HTML CODING FOR EMBEDDING AN IMAGE,
WHICH IS THE IMG IMAGE SOURCE AND THEN THE FILE.
OK, SO THERE'S THAT, AND THEN EMBED A VIDEO.
EMBEDDING THE VIDEO IS USUALLY EASY
BECAUSE IF YOU GO TO YOUTUBE OR VIMEO,
AND IT HAS A LITTLE EMBED, THAT ALREADY IS
THE HTML CODING FOR THAT.
OK. SO THE WAY THAT WORKS, OR THE WAY THAT
I ALWAYS HAVE MY STUDENTS DO IT, IS THE FOLLOWING.

IT'S GOING TO APPEAR OVER HERE IN MY PLACES,
SO I'M GONNA GET RID YOU GUYS DON'T HAVE TO.
I'M JUST GONNA DO THIS TO MAKE IT EASIER TO SEE IT.
I'M GONNA GET RID OF ALL OF THIS STUFF.
YOU'RE GOING TO ADD A FOLDER.

OK? AND SO YOU WANT TO NAME IT,
SO WE CAN CALL IT, YOU KNOW, "MY"
I'LL CALL IT "MY TEST TOUR."

AND THEN IN THE DESCRIPTION, I CAN SAY "THESE ARE 4 CITIES
THAT I HAVE VISITED AND WOULD LIKE TO AGAIN."

JUST KEEP IT EASY AND BRF.
- I'M SORRY. HOW DID YOU GET TO THE NEW FOLDER COMMAND?
- HOW DID I GET TO THE FOLDER? ADD AND THEN FOLDER.
I BELIEVE IT'S COMMAND-N FOR A NEW FILE. - SHIFT-N.
- IT'S SHIFT-N? OK, THANK YOU. SHIFT-N.

- COMMAND-SHIFT-N. - COMMAND-SHIFT-N.
THANK YOU.
- NOW IT'S GRAYED OUT.

- UNDER ADD? - WHY IS IT GRAYED OUT?

[INDISTINCT] I'VE GOT SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON.
- GO AHEAD AND CLOSE THAT, BUT NOW GO UP TO ADD.
YEAH. OK, THERE WE GO.
AND THEN JUST GO AHEAD AND JUST GIVE IT A SIMPLE TITLE.

AND THEN ONCE YOU'VE GOT, GO AHEAD AND CLICK OK,
AND SO NOW IT'S GOING TO APPEAR OVER IN THE PLACES.
NOW THERE'S TWO REASONS WHY I HAVE YOU DO THE FOLDER FIRST.

NUMBER ONE, ANYTHING THAT WE DO
WITH ADDING OR CREATING OF CONTENT FROM THIS POINT ON
WILL AUTOMATICALLY APPEAR IN THE FOLDER.
A LOT OF TIMES, STUDENTS WILL JUST START DOING PLACE MARKS.
THEN THEY GOTTA DO THE FOLDER,
THEN THEY GOTTA DRAG THEM INTO THE PLACE MARKS INTO THE FOLDER,
AND SOMETIMES IT'S NOT THE WAY THAT THE TOUR GOES,
IT'S NOT IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY WANT IT TO.
SO THE EASY WAY IS TO MAKE THE FOLDER
AND THEN DO THE PLACE MARKS IN THE ORDER
IN WHICH YOU WANT THEM TO APPEAR.
SO, LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE, THE GOOGLE LIT TRIPS.
MAKE A FOLDER. YOU DO CHAPTER ONE, TWO, 3, JUST LIKE THAT,
AND THEN WILL ALL APPEAR IN THE EXACT ORDER THAT YOU WANT IT TO.
ALL RIGHT. SO.
THE FIRST CITY THAT I'M GOING TO IS GOING TO BE...

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO THE SAME CITIES THAT I DO.
I'M JUST GONNA SHOW YOU HOW IT WORKS.

GOING DOWN TO MELBOURNE.

AND I CAN ZOOM INTO A SPECIFIC LOCATION
OR I CAN STAY ZOOMED OUT AND JUST KIND OF LEAVE IT AT THAT.
IN FACT...

OK, THAT'S WHERE THE RUGBY TEAM PLAYS.

SO...I'VE GOT MY VIEW.
I'M GOING TO CLICK ON THE PLACE MARK.
ADD PLACE MARK. CLICK ON IT.
I CAN MOVE THIS WINDOW OUT OF THE WAY,
AND I'M GONNA PUT THE PLACE MARK...

SOMEWHERE THAT I WANT OR EXACTLY WHERE I'VE BEEN.
IF YOU'LL NOTICE, IT AUTOMATICALLY DOES GPS COORDINATES.
I WILL TITLE THIS "A GREAT PLACE TO WATCH A RUGBY MATCH."

- SORRY, HOW DID YOU GET THE PLACE MARKERS UP?
- I CLICKED HERE. YES.
WHERE IT SAYS "ADD PLACE MARK."

AND AGAIN, YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO THE SAME CITY THAT I DO.
IT'S MORE A FUNCTION OF THE STEPS TO DO IT.
GO AHEAD AND GO TO A CITY
THAT YOU'VE EITHER BEEN TO OR WHAT HAVE YOU.
SO I CLICKED ON "ADD PLACE MARK" ON...

I CLICKED UP HERE AND "ADD PLACE MARK."
I GET THIS WINDOW. I CAN MOVE IT OVER.
I CAN PUT THE PLACE MARK WHERE I WANT.
IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY GIVE ME THE GPS COORDINATES,
AND THEN NOW DOWN IN HERE IN THE DESCRIPTION,
I CAN SAY SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF
"THIS WAS ONE OF MY HIGHLIGHTS OF MY TRIP DOWN UNDER."
I'LL JUST LEAVE IT SIMPLE.

I CAN CONTROL THE COLOR OF THE LABEL
AND THE ICON AND THE SCALING.
HERE'S A COOL THING HERE.
THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS I LIKE.
YOU CAN ACTUALLY CONTROL THE VIEW.
SO RIGHT NOW, I CAN SAY "SNAPSHOT CURRENT VIEW,"
SO IF YOU GO TO THIS PLACE MARK, YOU'RE GONNA GET THIS VIEW.
WE'LL CHANGE IT ON ONE OF OUR OTHER ONES,
WHERE WE CAN ACTUALLY CHANGE THE TILT AND WHAT HAVE YOU
FOR THAT PARTICULAR PLACE MARK.

IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE LOOK OF YOUR PLACE MARK IN THE WINDOW,
IT'S RIGHT HERE.
YOU CAN CLICK ON THAT AND THEN YOU GET
ANOTHER SELECTION OF ICONS, OR
WHAT I LIKE TO HAVE MY STUDENTS EVENTUALLY DO,
BECAUSE I HAVE THEM DO IT,
THEY MAKE THE ICONS IN FIREWORKS,
IS YOU CAN ADD A CUSTOM ICON.
- OH, WOW.
- AND THE REASON WHY I HAVE THEM DO A CUSTOM ICON,
I HAVE THEM MAKE THE ICON SIMILAR TO THE ADOBE ICON.
IT'S LIKE FOR PHOTOSHOP, IT'S THE BLUE BACKGROUND
WITH THE WHITE LETTERS "PS."
I HAVE THEM DO THAT EXACT SAME THING IN FIREWORKS
AND THEY DO THEIR INITIALS,
SO THAT WAY WHEN I HAVE ALL THE FILES,
YES, IT'S STILL A LITTLE BIT HARD
TO DECIPHER WHEN TWO STUDENTS HAVE THE SAME INITIALS,
BUT FOR THE MOST PART IT WORKS.
- HA HA!

- HOW DID YOU GET TO THAT [INDISTINCT]
- IN THE WINDOW, IT'S RIGHT HERE.

- OH, THAT TEENY-TINY THING.
- YEAH, RIGHT THERE. YEAH.
SO I'LL CLICK "OK," AND IF YOU'LL NOTICE,
IN MY TEST TOUR FOLDER, I NOW HAVE MY FIRST LOCATION.

IS THAT TOO FAST? YES.
- MINE DIDN'T GO... - MINE DIDN'T GO IN...
- YEAH, MINE DIDN'T GO. - YEAH, YOU CLICKED ON YOUR THING BEFORE YOU DID IT.
- AH... - YOU CAN DRAG AND DROP IT IN.
- YOU CAN, AND BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST ONE,
IT SHOULD WELL, HOPEFULLY IT'LL HAVE GONE IN ORDER.
MY GUESS IS THEY DIDN'T GO [INDISTINCT] MINE WAS HIGHLIGHTED.

SOAND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER,
I REMOVED SOME OF THE OTHER STUFF
JUST FOR THE SAKE OF I DON'T WANT IT
DOING ANY OF THE OTHER STUFF, PERIOD.

- HOW DO YOU GET THE EDIT WINDOW UP FOR THE PLACE MARK AGAIN?
- OK, HOW DO YOU GET THE EDIT WINDOW FOR THE PLACE MARK UP AGAIN?
IF YOU GO HOVER OVER THE PLACE MARK, RIGHT CLICK,
GET INFO, GET BACK TO THE EDIT WINDOW.
- OK. GET INFO.

- OK, AND SO NEXT, I'M GONNA THAT'S A PLACE MARK.
I'M GONNA SHOW YOU I'M GONNA DO A POLYGON,
SO IF YOU GUYS WILL DESCREEN FOR A MOMENT AND WATCH,
I'M GONNA GO TO PARIS.

AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, I'M GOING TO GO TO...

EIFFEL TOWER LAWN.

THEN I CHANGE MY ORIENTATION AND ZOOM DOWN.

GOING DOWN.

NOWOH, NO, WAIT. I'M SORRY.
I'M GONNA DO A POLYGON [INDISTINCT]

I'M GOING TO CLICK ON "ADD A POLYGON."
POLYGON IS SIMILAR TO A PLACE MARK
BUT IT COVERS AN AREA.
SO I'LL MOVE THIS.

I'M JUST CLICKING.

CLICK. MOVE IT. CLICK ONCE, ONCE, ONCE, ONCE.
NOW, JUST LIKE THE PLACE MARK, I CAN SAY, YOU KNOW...

TOWER.

THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO ENJOY THIS.
AND WHAT I WILL DO FROM HERE IS DO SEARCH FOR...

GO GET THE IMAGE.
THE IMAGE FILE IS ON
A LOT OF MY STUDENTS DO THIS,
IS THEY THINK THAT THAT IS THE WEB SITE FOR THE IMAGE
WHEN IT'S ACTUALLY THIS, BECAUSE
NOT ONLY IS IT IN THE IMAGE FILE,
IT'S THE ONLY THING ON THERE.
I'M GOING TO HIGHLIGHT OR COPY THAT,
GO BACK TO GOOGLE EARTH, AND THEN I'M GOING TO DO
MY HTML CODING.

- IF YOU GO TO FLICKR, YOU CAN GET THE HTML CODES FROM THE FLICKR IMAGE...
- YES, YOU CAN.

THEN CLICK "OK," AND NOW THERE IT IS.

AND IT'S A POLYGON BECAUSE IT'S COVERING AN AREA.
SO WHAT YOU GUYS CAN DO NEXT,
GO TO A LOCATION AND DO A POLYGON,
WHICH IS JUST LIKE THE PLACE MARK,
AND NOW JUST DO A VERY BRF DESCRIPTION,
AND THEN GO AHEAD AND ADD AN IMAGE.
AND THAT IS THE HTML CODING.
RIGHT NOW, IF YOU DON'T PUT FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT KNOW HTML,
THIS IS NOT NEW FOR YOU, BUT
I COULD'VE ADDED AFTER THIS
THE HEIGHT AND WIDTH DIMENSIONS IN PIXELS,
BUT IF YOU DON'T PUT IT, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY
RESIZE IT TO A WINDOW.

SO GO AHEAD AND GO TO YOUR NEXT LOCATION
AND JUST DO A SIMPLE POLYGON.
YOU JUSTIT WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONNECT THE POINTS.
YOU GUYS NOTICE, I DID THE RECTANGLE.
YOU CAN JUST DO IT THAT WAY.

- AND I HAD THAT - HOW DO YOU FIND IT AFTERWARDS?
- I'M SORRY? - HOW DO YOU FIND IT AFTERWARDS EXCEPT FOR THE LIST?
IS THERE GONNA BE AN ICON ON THE SCREEN?

- WELL, FIRST THING I WOULD DO IF I WERE YOU
IS I WOULD GET RID OF ALL OF THAT.
- OK.
- BECAUSE IT MAKES IT TOO HARD TO SEE EVERYTHING,
SO PUT IT THERE.

AND THEN [INDISTINCT]

AND THEN NOW WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANTED TO KNOW?
- [INDISTINCT]
- DOUBLE-CLICK ON IT. - YEAH, JUST CLICK [INDISTINCT]
- OK, THEN, LET'S DO THIS. RIGHT

[INDISTINCT] SO YOU WANT TO GO TO THE STADIUM?

- SO I GOT THE POLYGON.
I FOUND A PHOTO FROM THAT PLACE.
AND THEN
- OH, WELL, HE ACTUALLY FOUND A PHOTO OF [INDISTINCT]

THIS WAS ALREADY EMBEDDED SOMEWHERE,
SO WE DON'T KNOW [INDISTINCT]

- WELL, WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS YOU'RE HOLDING IT DOWN [INDISTINCT]
YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT. THE WAY I DID THE [INDISTINCT]
I CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK.
- OH, OK. HE DIDN'T FIND IT ON THE [INDISTINCT]
- HE JUST DID IT HERE, SO LET ME SEE IF THAT WORKED.
- ADD YOUR BRF DESCRIPTION
AND THEN ADD THE HTML CODE INTO "INSERT IMAGE."
- ...THE LINK, SO, ANYWAY, THIS IS GONNA BE A LINK,
AND THEN YOU GO HERE AND SAY...I WANT TO [INDISTINCT]
- WE'VE GOT TWO MORE PLACE MARKS THAT WE'LL DO,
THEN WE'LL BUST OUT OUR MOBILE DEVICES
AND WE'LL ENABLE MAPS,
THEN...THAT'S [INDISTINCT]
I WOULDN'T BE AN EFFECTIVE TEACHER IF I DIDN'T DO THE FOLLOWING,
SO I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS IN JUST A MOMENT
ONCE EVERYBODY GETS THEIR OK.
I GOT THIS PHOTO, BUT HOW DO I KNOW
I HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THIS?
I DON'T. BUT WHAT I CAN DO IS
GO IN HERE TO ADVANCED SEARCH AND TELL IT TO RETURN IMAGES
THAT ARE LABELED "FOR REUSE" UNDER USAGE RIGHTS.
YOU SEE REUSE, COMMERCIAL REUSE, REUSE WITH MODIFICATION,
COMMERCIAL REUSE WITH MODIFICATION.
THE OTHER THING THAT I DO WITH MY STUDENTS
IS I TELL THEM THEY HAVE TO DO THAT,
AND ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY'RE DOING DIGITAL STORYTELLING,
THEY HAVE TO FILTER IMAGES TO MAINTAIN
A CONSISTENT COLOR THEME THROUGHOUT,
SO IN THE CASE OF THE ESPRESSO THAT I DID A SEARCH FOR,
IF I CLICK ON "BLUE," BLUE WILL BE
ONE OF THE PRIMARY TAGGED COLORS IN THE IMAGES THAT ARE YLDED.
éLOW WILL DO éLOW.
- OH, WOW.
- SO THAT'S JUST ANOTHER LITTLE TIDBIT,
AND THEN I HAVE IT UNDER ANY TYPE,
BUT I COULD SAY I SPECIFICALLY WANT LINE DRAWINGS,
AND THEN IT'LL GO TO THAT, WHICH ALSO HAS CLIP ART,
OR I CAN JUST SAY "ANY TYPE," AND THEN I'M THERE,
AND YOU CAN FILTER BY SIZE.
SO AGAIN, THAT GOES BACK INTO OUR ADVANCED SEARCH,
WHERE YOU CAN CONTROL ALL OF THESE THINGS.

- THAT'S VERY COOL. - IN ADDITION TO, I HAVE ESPRESSO,
BUT I COULD SAY "NOT RELATED TO,"
AND I COULD SAY "CUP," AND THEN NOW DO A SEARCH
AND...I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE [INDISTINCT] BUT

SO IT'S JUST ANOTHER WAY TO CONTROL
AGAIN, I'M NOT GONNA SHARE WITH YOU GUYS.
I COULD SPEND 6 HOURS ON SEARCH,
AND YOU GUYS SEE I'VE ONLY SHOWN YOU
PRETTY MUCH JUST TWO THINGS FILE TYPE AND FILTERING OF IMAGE SEARCH.

IN FACT, WE CAN DO A WHOLE CURRICULUM STUDY
JUST USING SEARCH ALONE. YES.
NEXT, LET'S GO TO ANOTHER LOCATION,
SO I'M GONNA GO TO ROME.

AND...

I'M GOING TO DO THE FOLLOWING.

I'M GOING TOWE WON'T GET INTO IMAGE OVERLAY,
WHICH IS ACTUALLY PRETTY COOL, TOO,
BUT I'M GONNA ADD ANOTHER PLACE MARK HERE
IN THE COLOSSEUM.

I'M GONNA CHANGE THE LOOK OF MY PLACE MARK.

I'LL USE THAT.

AND I'M GONNA PUT...

COLOSSEO. OK, SO IN THE DESCRIPTION...

NEXT, FOR HERE, I WANT YOU TO, IF YOU CAN,
FIND A VIDEO AND ADD A HYPERLINK TO A RESOURCE.
SO FOR EXAMPLE, FOR HERE, I'M GONNA GO WEB.
TYPE IN...

DO INSTEAD OF WIKIPEDIA, HERE WE GO.
ROMAN COLOSSEUM FACTS.
I'M GOING TO COPY THE URL, GO BACK HERE.
I MIGHT NEED HELP FROM MY HTML FRIENDS HERE.
OK, OPEN.
ISN'T IT A HREF?
- EQUALS, QUOTE...
- EQUALS, QUOTE...THE URL. CLOSE QUOTE.
CLOSE COMMAND.

- AND THEN YOU PUT SOMETHING IN THERE. TAG LIST.
- I'M SORRY? - PUT SOME TAGS.
- AFTER THIS ONE, RIGHT? - YEAH, WHERE YOU WANT THE LINK TO BE.

- HERE. YEAH, OK, THEN... - LIKE THAT.
- [INDISTINCT]
- I'M SORRY? - NO, NO, NO.
YOU GOTTA CLOSE YOU GOTTA DO THE LESS THAN.
- LESS THAN. - WHOOPS, NO.
PUT THAT IN THE BACK. GREATER THAN.
THEN GO ON THE OTHER SIDE OFNO, NO.
- NO, AFTER THE "HERE." - AFTER THE "HERE."
- I'M SORRY? - AFTER THE WORD "HERE."
- NOW GO AFTER WORDS AND THEN DO THE OTHER ONE.
- NOW LESS THAN.

SLASH. "A."
- OH, THAT'S RIGHT.
- AND GREATER THAN.
THAT'S YOUR TEXT THAT'S THE LINK.
- RIGHT. THAT SAYS LINK TO THIS TEXT.
I'LL CLICK "OK" AND...
"ANOTHER GREAT PLACE TO VISIT HERE."
I CLICK ON IT.

THERE IT IS. BUT...
I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GUYS NOTICED WHAT JUST HAPPENED WITH THAT.
- IT [INDISTINCT]
- IT WHAT? - LEFT THE [INDISTINCT]
- NO, IT DIDN'T. I'M STILL [INDISTINCT] SEE?
GOOD. BACK TO DO THE WORK.
- OH... - THAT'S NEW.
IT USED TO BE YOU HAVE TO GO INTO YOUR BROWSER.
NOW IT WILL PULL UP THE PAGE HERE IN GOOGLE EARTH,
AND IF YOU WANT TO GO TO THE INTERNET,
I CAN CLICK HERE, OPEN [INDISTINCT]

SO LET ME GET THAT BACK UP.

THAT'S THE HTML COMMAND FOR INSERTING A HYPERLINK
AND THEN THE TEXT THAT YOU WANT IT TO LINK FROM.
THAT'S THE COMMAND FOR THE HYPERLINK
AND THEN THE TEXT.

THEN I WANT TO SHOW YOU GUYS ONE QUICK THING ALSO
WHERE I CAN CONTROL THE VIEW FROM PLACE MARK.

SO WHILE YOU GUYS ARE DOING THAT,
I'LL JUST SHARE WITH YOU GUYS
ANOTHER PROJECT THAT I ASSIGN FOR MY STUDENTS.
IT'S COMPARABLE TO WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
AND THAT PROJECT IS, YOU HAVE 6 WEEKS TO TRAVEL
ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
YOU HAVE TO TRAVEL TO A MINIMUM OF 4 CITIES
ON AT LEAST TWO CONTINENTS.
YOU HAVE TO PLACE MARK WHERE YOU GO.
YOU HAVE TO CREATE A POLYGON OR PLACE MARK
OF A WALKING TOUR THAT HAS TO BE
NO LESS THAN TWO MILES IN THE CITY,
AND YOU HAVE TO INCLUDE PLACE MARKS ON THE WALKING TOUR
OF HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WALKING TOUR
AS WELL AS FIND IMAGES THAT SUPPORT WHERE IT IS YOU'VE GONE.
SO FOR EXAMPLE, I HAD THE POLYGON
ON THE LAWN NEAR THE EIFFEL TOWER.
I WOULD THEN USE AN IMAGE OVERLAY OF THE EIFFEL TOWER
TO SAY, "I WAS SITTING RIGHT HERE, BE LOOKING AT THIS VIEW
"WHEN I WAS DRINKING MY ESPRESSO AND EATING A CROISSANT.
THEN I GOT UP AND WALKED."
THEN THE NEXT PLACE MARK.
FROM HERE, THIS WAS THE VIEW OF THE EIFFEL TOWER.
THEN I WOULD MAKE THEM INCLUDE A LITTLE HISTORY, YOU KNOW,
THAT THE TOWER DESIGNED AND BUILT BY GUSTAV EIFFEL,
WHO ALSO DONATED WHAT TO THE U.S.?
- STATUE OF LIBERTY.
- THANK YOU. STATUE OF LIBERTY.
KEEP GOING. SO THERE ARE WALKING TOURS.
NOWI WILL SHOW YOU GUYS REAL QUICK
HOW DO THEY KNOW HOW FAR THEY'VE GONE?

SO LET ME CLICK "OK" HERE, BECAUSE HERE'S ANOTHER THING.
I WANT TO KNOW HOW FAR AROUND THE COLOSSEUM.
SEE THIS RULER RIGHT HERE? I CAN NOW...

DRAW A PATH.

OBVIOUSLY, IT'S NOT COMPLETELY CIRCULAR.

AND...

SO MY DISTANCE I JUST MEASURED ON A PATH.
YOU CAN DO A LINE OR A PATH. I JUST MEASURED ROUGHLY
THE DISTANCE AROUND THE COLOSSEUM,
SO I COULD SAY, YOU KNOW, I DID A LITTLE
HALF-MILE WALK AROUND THE COLOSSEUM.
SO THEN NOW I WOULD ADD PLACE MARKS.
I ADDEDI ADD THE PLACE MARK TO THE LOCATION.
I WOULD ADD PLACE MARKS AROUND HERE ABOUT MY WALK,
AND THEN INCLUDE IN THOSE IMAGES THAT ARE REPRESENTATIONAL
OF THE VIEW AT THAT PARTICULAR LOCATION.
AND THEN THE OTHER THING THAT THEY HAVE TO DO
IS THE FOLLOWING.

FROM...THE "GET INFO."

REMEMBER, I WAS HERE. I CAN CONTROL THE ALTITUDE,
BUT WHAT I CAN DO EVEN EASIER IS...

CHANGE MY VIEW, AND THEN I CAN CLICK
"SNAPSHOT TO CURRENT VIEW."
AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GUYS NOTICE, IT CHANGES IT.
CLICK "OK," SO NOW WHEN YOU GO TO THIS PLACE MARK,
IT'S NOT GOING TO BE FROM UP HERE.
IT'S GOING TO BE FROM WHAT I JUST DID.

- [INDISTINCT]
- IT'S RIGHT HERE. - NO, I KNOW, BUT MINE'S GRAYED OUT.

- BECAUSE YOUARE YOU IN STREET VIEW?
- [INDISTINCT] - AND FOR MY NON-HTML FOLKS IN THE ROOM,
AGAIN, ON THE WEB SITE, UNDER RESOURCES,
ONE OF THE FIRST LINKS IS HTML,
AND IT'S A LIST OF JUST COMMON HTML COMMANDS.
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO MEMORIZE THEM.
IT'S ALL RIGHT THERE.
- I'M SORRY, COULD YOU SAY THAT AGAIN?
- ON THELET ME SHOW YOU REAL QUICK.
ON THE WEB SITE...

SEE? OUR RESOURCES. HTML.
- ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.
- SO HERE SEE, THERE'S ALL THE DIFFERENT THINGS.
BUT THE MAIN ONES, AGAIN, WAS IMAGES.
AND AGAIN, IF YOU PUTYOU CAN DETERMINE THE HEIGHT AND WIDTH
OR ALLOW IT TO JUST SIZE TO FIT, AND THEN...

[INDISTINCT] URL.

HERE WE GO. AND THEN FOR A LINK
SEE? A HREF EQUALS THE WEB ADDRESS.
TEXT GOES HERE AND THEN YOU CLOSE OUT THE COMMAND.
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MEMORIZING IT,
BECAUSE IT'S ALL RIGHT THERE.

THE MORE YOU DO IT, YOU'LL PROBABLY MEMORIZE IT, BUT
OK. LET'S MOVE ON TO ONE MORE
AND THEN A VIDEO.
THEN WE'LL LOOK AT IT.
I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS WHAT YOU WOULD DO TO RECORD IT,
AND THEN I'M GONNA SHOW YOU HOW YOU CAN INCORPORATE
EVERYTHING WE'RE DOING ON A MOBILE DEVICE.
SO I'M GONNA GO OVER TO MY LAST LOCATION,
WHICH WILL BE VANCOUVER.

- SO IF YOU JUST HIT MIDDLE-SCHOOL STUDENTS,
THEN, OBVIOUSLY, ALL WE'RE DOING IS A FEW [INDISTINCT] HIT.
DON'T YOU EXPECT TO GET SOME PEOPLE
DO TO THESE TRIPS OUT AT SOME POINT AND GET BACK TO YOU?
- TO DO WHAT?
- DO THESE TRIPS OUT.
- YOU KNOW, IT'S FUNNY YOU SAY THAT BECAUSE A STUDENT TODAY
JUST TOLD ME AND I WAS NOT PLEASED ABOUT IT
SHE JUST TOLD ME THAT SHE IS GOING TO LEAVE ON SUNDAY,
AND FOR OUR 3-WEEK WINTER BREAK, SHE'S GOING WITH HER FAMILY
TO PARIS, LONDON, MADRID, BARCELONA, AND MILAN.
- NICE.
- SO OVERACHIEVEMENT ARE GREAT.
- DID YOU GIVE HER HOMEWORK?
- HONESTLY, YEAH, I DID GIVE HER HOMEWORK,
BUT HER ONLY HOMEWORK, BECAUSE THEY HAVE
A MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT COMING UP
THAT I HAVE A LIST OF 17 THINGS
THAT THEY HAVE TO MAKE PHOTOS ON,
I SAID, "YOUR HOMEWORK IS TO BRING YOUR CAMERA
"AND SEE IF YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH SOME OF THOSE
WHILE YOU'RE ON THE TRIP," AND MY EXPECTATION
IS FOR HER TO DOCUMENT BECAUSE SHE'S NEVER BEEN.
I SAID, "I WANT YOU TO DO A NICE PHOTO STORY DOCUMENTATION
OF YOUR TRIP, ESPECIALLY SINCE THAT'S YOUR FIRST ONE,"
AND I'M GONNA HELP HER TURN IT INTO A DIGITAL STORY,
AND THEN SHE'LL KEEP THAT AS HER SCRAPBOOK
BECAUSE THAT'S HER FIRST TRIP TO EUROPE.
ALL RIGHT. SO I WENT TO VANCOUVER.
HAS ANYONE HERE BEEN TO VANCOUVER?
- YES.
- WONDERFUL PLACE TO GO IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN.
SO I'M GOING TO GRANVILLE ISLAND HERE.

I'M GONNA ADD ANOTHER PLACE MARKER.
I'M GONNA CHANGE THE WAY IT LOOKS.
I'LL MAKE IT RED.
TECHNICALLY, I COULD MAKE IT THE CANADIAN FLAG.
ANYWAY, SO I'M GONNA PUT IT DOWN HERE.
- THAT'S VANCOUVER?
- YES. THAT'S RIGHT, BUT THIS IS GRANVILLE ISLAND.
SO I'M GONNA CALL ITOOPS
GRAN...VILLE...ISLAND...

AND I DON'T REMEMBER
OH, YEAH. I DID POST SOME OF MY PHOTOS FROM HERE,
SO I DON'T NEED PERMISSION TO USE MY OWN PHOTO, ALL RIGHT?

OK. HERE WE GO CANADA...
AND...I'LL DO IT WITH THIS ONE.
SO THAT'S MY PICTURE I DID AT GRANVILLE ISLAND,
WHICH IS EXACTLY, FOR THE MOST PART, WHERE
OOPS. NO.
IN FACT, I'M GONNA BE EXACT...
RIGHT...THERE...

AND I'M GONNA ADD AN IMAGE, AND THEN I'M GONNA
FIND A VIDEO ABOUT GRANVILLE ISLAND.
SO FOR THE IMAGE AND IT'S

ACTUALLY, THAT ONE SHOULD DO IT THIS WAY.

- SO THAT'S CALLED PHOTO OVERLAY?
- I'M SORRY?
- IT THAT CALLED A PHOTO OVERLAY?
- NO. THIS IS AN IMAGE.
IN FACT, IF YOU WANT TO, I CAN DO IMAGE OVERLAY
SO YOU CAN SEE HOW IT WOULD LOOK.
SHOULD BE THIS WAY. YEP. THERE WE GO.
- AND IT ACTUALLY CAN CLIP AT IT NOW.
BECAUSE YOU GRABBED THE HTML,
IT'LL GO BACK TO FLICKR.
- YEAH, AND I CAN DO THAT BECAUSE OF TWO THINGS.
NUMBER ONE, IT ALREADY HAS IT THERE FOR ME,
AND TWO, I'M LOGGED INTO MY FLICKR ACCOUNT...
- YEAH. RIGHT. YEAH.

- BUT IF I WANTED TO
WELL, LET ME GO TO VIDEO FIRST, LOOK AT THIS...

THE B.C. FLD REPORTER.
SO I WENT TO A YOUTUBE VIDEO,
AND I'LL CLICK ON "EMBED,"
AND ALL OF THIS CODING RIGHT HERE,
THAT'S MY HTML CODING.
I'LL GO BACK TO THE PLACE MARK, PASTE THAT, CLICK "OK,"
AND NOW I'VE GOT THE IMAGE.
AH.
THERE WE GO, AND THEN THERE'S THE VIDEO.
DID I DO THAT TOO FAST, OR SHALL I DO IT AGAIN?
- YEAH, SIR.
- YES? - YES.
- OK.
SO I PUT MY PLACE MARK, OK?
I CHANGED IT TO RED.
I WENT TO AN IMAGE, AND IN THIS CASE,
BECAUSE I WAS JUST THERE LAST MONTH,
I WENT TO MY FLICKR, OK?
LUCKILY, HERE I HAVE "SHARE THIS,"
AND, SEE, I CAN GRAB THE HTML AND BBC CODE HERE,
SO I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT TYPING EVERYTHING IN.
I CAN EVEN CONTROL THE SIZE OF IT.
I THEN WENT BACK HERE, PASTED THAT CODE,
BUT I WANT TO ADD A VIDEO, SO I WENT ONTO YOUTUBE,
FOUND A VIDEO FROM A BRITISH COLUMBIA FLD REPORTER,
CLICK ON "EMBED," WHICH IS THE SAME CODING.
I EMBEDDED THAT CODING, CLICK "OK,"
CLICK THE PLACE MARK, AND THEN NOW I HAVE
BOTH MY IMAGE AND THE VIDEO.

- RIGHT, AND IT WAS EASY.
BOTH OF THEM HAD EMBED CODES PREBUILT IN...
- EXACTLY, AND, AGAIN, THAT'S WHERE YOU DON'T HAVE TO
IF YOU DON'T KNOW HTML CODING FOR THIS,
THAT GIVES YOU THE LUXURY OF NOT EVEN WORRYING ABOUT IT,
BUT WHAT YOU'LL FIND IF YOU DO NEED TO KNOW HTML CODING,
THE TWO COMMON CODINGS ARE THE IMAGE SOURCE
AND THE HREF FOR THE LINK.
YOU ASKED ABOUT IMAGE OVERLAY.
IF I WERE TO DO AN IMAGE OVERLAY HERE,
I WOULD CLICK ON "IMAGE OVERLAY."
IF YOU'LL NOTICE, IT GIVES ME THE GRID
THAT I CAN THEN SHRINK, SIZE IT,
EVEN ROTATE IT, OK,
BUT I STILL NEED TO HAVE A LINK TO THE IMAGE.
SO I'LL GO BACK TO HERE, TO THE LINK...

AND THEN I'M GONNA GET THAT SAME CODING.
IN FACT, LET'S MAKE IT LARGE,
COPY THAT, GO BACK HERE...

AND PASTE.

ALL RIGHT. BACK.
CHOO CHOO CHOO.

HERE YOU GO, OK?
IMAGE OVERLAY IS IN THERE.
IF I CLICK ON IT, IT'LL PULL BACK.
- CAN YOU NAME IT NOW, OR YOU HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE
- I'M SORRY?
- CAN YOU NAME IT ON THAT SIDE PANEL,
OR DO YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE GIVEN FILE?
- I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEAN?
- THAT'S ALL RIGHT. YOU EXPLAINED IT.
IT WAS SELF-EXPLANATORY.
- OH, YEAH, YEAH. COOL. CLICK IN THERE? YEAH.
I CAN DO THIS, ALL RIGHT? OOPS.
DOWN, DOWN.

OOPS.
EH. WHICH?

CHOO CHOO CHOO CHOO.
AH, WAIT.
AH, YES. THAT CAN'T BE RIGHT.

THERE IT IS, I THINK...

AND SO THEN NOW...

YOU GOT THE PLACE MARK SET UP.
IMAGINE THEM ALL AROUND...

AND...
I NOW CLICK ON THIS ARROW BECAUSE I'M IN MY FOLDER,
AND IT WILL TAKE ME TO ALL OF MY LOCATIONS.
IT WILL NOT PULL UP THE CONTENT
YOU STILL HAVE TO CLICK ON IT BUT YOU SEE US
GOING FROM PLACE...

TO PLACE
BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOW CREATED A TOUR.
IF I CLICK HERE,
I CAN ACTUALLY RECORD THIS,
RIGHT-CLICK, "SAVE AS," AND I NOW HAVE MY .KMZ FILE
OF THE CONTENT THAT I CREATED.
- OK. CAN YOU WATCH IT BY GOOGLE?
- WELL, I HAVEN'T DONE IT YET.
- OH, OK.
- YEAH. NO, NO, NO, NO. THAT'S FINE.
I JUST WANTED TO SHOW YOU GUYS THIS.
SO GO AHEAD AND FINISH UP YOUR LAST THING,
YOUR LAST WHATCHA CALL IT PLACE MARK, AND

WHEN YOU GUYS SET UP YOUR TOUR, HERE'S ANOTHER THING.
REMEMBER HOW IT WAS GOING TO THE LOCATIONS
AND THEN THE NEXT ONE, SO FORTH?
I CAN CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT DOES IT, HOW LONG IT DOES IT,
AND YOU SEE THIS RIGHT HERE?
I CHECK THAT.
NOW ALL THAT CONTENT IS GONNA GO THERE, POP UP,
AND THEN GO TO THE NEXT ONE, POP UP.
- HOW DID YOU GET TO THIS WINDOW?
- THIS IS UNDER THE PREFERENCES.
- PREFERENCES? - YES.

I'LL EVEN SPEED IT UP A LITTLE BIT.

NOW...
I SPED IT UP.
ZOOM IN, SHOW ME WHAT IT SAYS,
THEN GO TO THE NEXT ONE.

SO YOU GUYS GO AHEAD AND DO THAT,
AND THEN AFTER YOU DO THAT, I'M GONNA SHOW YOU
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU RECORD.
- YES?
- I'M GONNA
IT WON'T MOVE.
I CAN DO KEYBOARD HERE, RIGHT,
BUT I CAN'T MOVE THROUGH THESE ANYMORE.
IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

- OK. IT WON'T
- GO IN THAT, THAT, AND THEN LOOKING FORWARDS.
HOW DO I GET INTO
- OK. SO LET ME SHOW YOU GUYS ONE MORE THING WITH THIS.
RIGHT NOW, I HAVE A .KML FILE THAT I CAN RIGHT-CLICK,
SAVE PLACE AS, AND YOU SEE THAT?
I CAN SAVE IT TO THE DESKTOP OR WHEREVER,
AND NOW IT'S MY .KMZ FILE THAT I COULD NOW THEN E-MAIL
TO EACH ONE OF YOU, AND YOU WILL BE ABLE
TO NOT ONLY GO THROUGH MY PLACES.
IT WILL DO EXACTLY HOW I HAD THE TOURING SET UP
WHERE IT WILL GO TO IT, POP IT UP, 3 SECONDS,
THEN GO TO THE NEXT ONE,
POP IT UP, 3 SECONDS, SO ON AND SO FORTH.
I CAN ALSO RECORD THAT TOUR
AND SEND YOU THE RECORDED TOUR FILE.
THERE'S A CATCH WITH THE RECORDED TOUR
THAT A FRIEND OF MINE TOLD ME.
YOU CAN RECORD A TOUR, AND YOU CAN INCLUDE AUDIO,
BUT FOR SOME REASON, IF YOU WERE TO DO IT ON WINDOWS,
IT DOESN'T PLAY NICE WITH MAC AND VICE VERSA.
NOBODY KNOWS WHY.
A LOT OF THE GOOGLE-CERTIFIED TEACHERS HAVE POSTED IT
ON OUR DISCUSSION BOARD, AND THERE'S NO ANSWER.
ALL I CAN SAY IS, EVERY TIME I'VE DONE A GOOGLE WORKSHOP
AND THEY USE INTERNET EXPLORER, IT DOESN'T PLAY FRIENDLY
WITH ANY OF THE GOOGLE STUFF.
SO IF, FOR SOME REASON, YOU DETERMINE
THAT THIS IS OF ENOUGH VALUE TO YOU THAT YOU WOULD LIKE
TO DO IT YOURSELF OR HAVE STUDENTS DO IT,
KEEP IN MIND THAT IF THEY'RE RECORDING A TOUR,
THE PLATFORM CAN IMPACT THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT,
BUT IF YOU DO WHAT WE JUST DID HERE WHERE WE DID PLACE MARKS
AND THEN I JUST SAVED THIS, IF I SENT THIS TO ALL OF YOU,
IT WOULD WORK TOTALLY FINE.

NOW I'D LIKE TO SHOW YOU GUYS TWO LAST THINGS
BEFORE WE'RE PRETTY MUCH FINISHED,
AND THEN I CAN COME AROUND AND HELP ANYBODY THAT NEEDS HELP.
LET ME GO TO MY MAPS. YEAH. HERE WE GO. ALL RIGHT.
I'M GONNA SIGN IN HERE.

OK. SO YOU GUYS HAVE ALL SAID YOU USED GOOGLE MAPS BEFORE.
HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE CREATED A CUSTOM MAP ON THE MY MAPS?
OK, ONLY A FEW OF US. ALL RIGHT.
BASICALLY, WHAT HAPPENS WITH CUSTOM MY MAPS IS,
NOW I CAN NOW DO CREATE NEW MAP, AND I CAN MAKE A MAP.
SO I CAN GIVE YOU GUYS AN EXAMPLE.
ON SATURDAY MORNING, BECAUSE I'M ON THE CALIFORNIA LEADERSHIP COUNCIL
FOR THE DISCOVERY EDUCATOR NETWORK,
SO I'M LEADING A PHOTO WALK IN VENICE
THROUGH THE CANALS, ALONG THE BOARDWALK AND THE PIER
ON SATURDAY MORNING.
SO TO MAKE THAT INFORMATION MORE ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYBODY,
I DID A CUSTOM MAP BECAUSE I ACTUALLY LED
THERE'S A SCOTT KELBY, WHO IS THE
OK. YOU GUYS KNOW. OK. SO THE WORLDWIDE PHOTO WALK.
SO I LED A PHOTO WALK IN VENICE BACK IN JULY,
AND SO FOR DISCOVERY, I SAID, "I'VE ALREADY LED THE PHOTO WALK.
"THAT'S WHAT I LIKE TO DO, AND IT'LL CONTRIBUTE CONTENT
"TO DISCOVERY EDUCATOR NETWORK IN THEIR MEDIA SHARE,
WHICH I DON'T MIND DOING THAT, ANYWAY."
SO I SAID, "I WANT TO DO A PHOTO WALK
THAT'S THE SAME ROUTE THAT I DID THERE."
THEY SAID, "OH, REALLY? WHAT'D YOU DO? WHERE'S THE WALK?"
I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS.
I DID A CUSTOM MAP TO SHOW THE FOLLOWING

WHERE TO PARK AND HIGHLIGHTS ON THE WALK,
AND JUST LIKE YOU GUYS DID PLACE MARKS IN GOOGLE EARTH,
YOU CAN DO SOME OF THE SIMILAR THINGS IN MAPS.
SO, SEE, WHEN I SAID, "OK. THIS IS ALONG THE BOARDWALK.
THAT'S WHERE MUSCLE BEACH IS," AND SO ANYONE
WHO IS GOING TO ATTEND OR WHO DID
BACK WITH THE SCOTT KELBY PHOTO WALK, MY PHOTO WALK,
I SAID, "HEY, IF YOU SIGN UP FOR MY PHOTO WALK
"AND YOU'VE NEVER BEEN THERE, HERE'S A CUSTOM MAP I MADE.
IT SHOWS YOU THE ROUTE, THE DISTANCE."
IF YOU DO THIS, THAT DISTANCE I MEASURED IT
ENDED UP BEING ABOUT TWO MILES.
IT'S ABOUT A TWO-MILE WALK, AND HERE'S SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS
THE CANALS, THE PIER, AND MUSCLE BEACH.
SO NOW NO ONE
IT WAS CLEAR WHERE TO PARK, SEE?
PARKING LOT ONE, OPTION ONE;
PARKING LOT TWO, OPTION TWO;
THE CANALS WITH A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT THEM; THE PIER.

NOW, THE REASON WHY I BRING THIS UP IS BECAUSE
ON MY iPHONE, I CAN GO
TO THE GOOGLE EARTH APPLICATION
ON HERE...

AND IF YOU
WHO HAS AN iPHONE IN HERE?
WOW, SO THE REST OF YOU HAVE BLACKBERRY, YEAH?
- YEAH, DROIDS.
- OK, AND THE DROID ALSO HAS A GOOGLE EARTH APPLICATION,
AS WELL, YEAH?
- I HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT.
- YEAH. IT HAS A LOCATOR.
- ALL RIGHT, BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IS
WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU GUYS CAN SEE IT ON MY PHONE.
IT'S NOT A PROBLEM.
IF I GO TO GOOGLE EARTH ON HERE
AND I LOG INTO MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT,
I NOW HAVE ACCESS TO ALL OF MY MAPS,
BUT, LIKE YOU GUYS SAW, "THE GRAPES OF WRATH,"
I CAN NOW DO THE EXACT SAME THING YOU SAW IN HERE ON THIS
ALL THE PLACE MARKS TAP ON THEM
ALL THE CONTENT FROM THE PLACE MARKS
ON MY MOBILE DEVICE.
WORKS ON AN iPOD TOUCH, AS WELL.
IN FACT, THERE YOU GO. SEE?
I DON'T KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER "THE GRAPES OF WRATH,"
WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE.
SEE, IF I TAP ON A
- SO JUST GOOGLE EARTH APPLICATION.
- SEE? AND YOU TAP ON A PLACE MARK,
THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS, AND IT PULLS UP THE CONTENT.
DO YOU WANT TO SEE? THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE ON THERE,
EXACTLY LIKE WHAT WE HAD ON HERE.
- SO HOW DO I GET TO THE MY MAPS FROM
- WELL, THERE'S A CATCH.
THE CATCH IS, FOR THOSE OF US WHO HAVE AN iPHONE, IT'S EASIER.
I DON'T WORK FOR APPLE.
I MAY BE AN A.D., BUT I DON'T WORK FOR APPLE,
BUT AT ANY RATE, THE WAY IT WORKS IS,
WHEN YOU GO INTO GOOGLE EARTH, YOU CLICK ON THE "I"
FOR INFORMATION, AND IF YOU SCROLL DOWN,
SEE WHERE IT SAYS "MY MAPS ACCOUNT" OR "MY MAPS"?
YOU LOG IN, AND THEN NOW YOU GOT ACCESS TO YOUR MY MAPS.
NOW, I KNOW I'M KIND OF ZIPPING THROUGH THIS,
BUT I'LL SHOW YOU GUYS REALLY QUICK.
IF I GO TO MY MAP SWATCH THIS I DO CREATE NEW MAP.
SEE THIS LITTLE IMPORT RIGHT HERE?
I CAN NOW IMPORT

OH, WAIT. I DIDN'T SAVE IT YET.
I CAN IMPORT

DESKTOP. SAVE IT.

CANCEL. BROWSE.
DESKTOP. MAKE THIS A FULL MAP.

THERE YOU GO. SEE THAT?
REMEMBER ALL THE STUFF YOU GUYS SAW?
I'LL MAKE IT UNLISTED, AND I'LL CHECK WITH IT LATER.
CLICK "SAVE," "DONE."
NOW, REMEMBER ALL THE LITTLE THINGS?
COLISEUM, THERE'S A HYPERLINK.
THE CATCH IS, IT'S DOESN'T BRING IN EVERYTHING
YOU SEE I DON'T HAVE THE IMAGE OVERLAY
BUT ALL THE PLACE MARKS REMEMBER?THERE'S THE IMAGE.
THERE'S THE VIDEO.
IT IS NOW ALL AVAILABLE NOT ONLY IN MY MAPS,
BUT IF I SWITCH TO EARTH HERE,
IT'S ALL STILL AVAILABLE IN THE GOOGLE EARTH
WEB-BASED VERSION, AS OPPOSED TO THE COMPUTER-BASED APPLICATION.
IF I GO BACK AND LOG OUT AND LOG BACK IN ON MY PHONE,
I NOW HAVE ACCESS TO MY TOUR ON MY PHONE.
THE CATCH WITH HERE IS, IF YOU CLICK ON THE YOUTUBE THING,
IT WILL GO OUT OF EARTH AND ONTO THE YOUTUBE APPLICATION,
BUT IT WILL STILL BE THAT SAME VIDEO.
SO NOW YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE AND CREATE CONTENT
AND THEN CONSUME IT NOW IN 3 DIFFERENT WAYS
BROWSER, APPLICATION, OR MOBILE DEVICE.
- AND YOU JUST MAKE THE .KMZ AVAILABLE
FOR SOMEBODY TO DOWNLOAD?
I'M SORRY. I'M CONFUSED AS TO HOW YOU GET THAT IN THERE.
- WHEN GIVE ME A
- SO I MADE MY TOUR, AND I MAKE IT AVAILABLE
TO YOU TO PUT ON YOUR iPHONE.
- I WOULD HAVE TO IMPORT IT INTO MY MAPS.
THEN IT'S AVAILABLE HERE. THAT'S THE CATCH.
- SO WE HAVE TO GIVE THEM A LITTLE INSTRUCTION
ON HOW TO DO IT.
- YES, BUT, YOU SEE,
IT'S ONLY HOW MANY STEPS THERE?
- YOU HAVE TO BE SIGNED IN ON THAT.
- SIGN IN, CREATE A MAP, IMPORT IT, SAVE, DONE.
THAT'S IT.
- YOU HAVE THIS STEP IN YOUR HANDOUT?
- NOT THESE STEPS, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
BECAUSE I DO GOOGLE EARTH STUFF ENOUGH
AND I'LL BE DOING A WORKSHOP AT C.U.E. AND AT ISTE,
I COULD DO A SCREEN CAST OR
- WELL, JUST SAY IT AGAIN. SO YOU SAVE YOUR .KMZ.
- SAVE YOUR .KMZ FILE.
- SO YOU POST IT SOMEWHERE, AND YOU TELL FOLKS THAT
- THEN YOU HAVE TO LOG INTO YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT.
- THEN THE USER HAS TO LOG INTO GOOGLE AND
- AND IT'S SPECIFICALLY MAPS.
- MAPS, AND THEY HAVE TO IMPORT
- AH, YOU GOT TO CREATE A MAP, AND FROM THAT,
THE NEXT INTERFACE, IMPORT THAT .KMZ FILE.
THEN SAVE IT, AND THEN THAT'S IT.
- AND THEN THEY HAVE AVAILABLE ON ALL THEIR DEVICES.
- YES, BUT YOU'VE GOT TO LOG INTO YOUR ACCOUNT
FROM THE DEVICE. YES.
- YOU SAY THIS ULTIMATELY WILL NEVER BE A BROWSER.
DOES A VISITOR HAVE TO DOWNLOAD A PLUG-IN?
- FOR?
- FOR VIEWING ANY OF THE TOURS IN GOOGLE EARTH.
- WELL, IF THEY HAVE THE .KMZ OR .KML FILE,
THEY HAVE TO HAVE GOOGLE EARTH INSTALLED
ON THEIR COMPUTER.
- OK. SO THE .KMZ, THOUGH, CAN BE EMBEDDED
IN THAT, I WOULD THINK.
- YES. IT CAN.
LIKE, REMEMBER WHERE I SHOWED YOU GUYS
ABOUT THIS WEB SITE FOR THE COLLEGE TOURS?
THOSE ARE TOURS.
- BUT THEN THE VISITOR, BEING THIS COMPUTER HERE,
WOULD HAVE TO DOWNLOAD PLUG-IN FOR THAT?
- YES, BUT IF YOU KEEP YOUR BROWSER UPDATED,
I KNOW THAT THAT API JUST CAME OUT ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO.
AS LONG AS YOU KEEP YOUR BROWSER,
ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE USING FIREFOX OR CHROME, IT WILL WORK.
- WHAT'S THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT DOWNLOADED?
DO YOU KNOW?
- THAT HAVE
- THAT ARE DOWNLOADING THAT PLUG-IN.
IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT PERCENTAGE
- I DO NOT KNOW THAT,
AND IF YOU GO TO THE PAGE, IT WILL TELL YOU,
"IN ORDER TO VIEW THIS, YOU NEED THE FOLLOWING PLUG-IN."
- BUT THE ONE YOU'RE LOOKING AT NOW, IT'S NOT A PLUG-IN.
- NO. THIS IS NOT.
THIS IS ME LOGGED INTO MY MAPS, AND SO THIS IS BROWSER-BASED.
- SO AS LONG AS THE BROWSER IS UP-TO-DATE,
THEY'LL BE ABLE TO VIEW IT.
- WELL, I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.
THE THING IS, HOW CAN YOU VIEW, LIKE, THIS, THE COLLEGE TOUR?
THEY INSTALLED THE GOOGLE EARTH API INTO THEIR SITE, BASICALLY,
BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO HAVE A BROWSER
THAT IS CAPABLE OF READING THAT.
THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.
ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE USING FIREFOX, SAFARI, OR CHROME,
IT WILL WORK, ESPECIALLY IF YOU KEEP THEM UPDATED.
I.E.? CAN'T GUARANTEE THAT.
- SO THE PLUG-IN IS BEING PUSHED VIA AN UPDATE ALREADY?
- PRETTY MUCH, YEAH, IN THE BROWSER, YEAH,
AND IF IT DOESN'T, IT WILL TELL YOU,
"OK. IN ORDER TO VIEW THIS, YOU NEED TO FIND THE PLUG-IN,"
AND THEN YOU CAN JUST ADD IT TO IT,
BUT I KNOW THAT THAT WAS A BIG PROBLEM EARLY ON,
AND THAT'S WHY, LIKE I SAID, MOST OF THE GOOGLE STUFF
DOES PLAY FRIENDLY, ESPECIALLY WITH CHROME,
FIREFOX, AND SAFARI.
WITH INTERNET EXPLORER, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND USING THAT.
- DOES THE PLUG-IN NOT WORK WELL?
- I'M SORRY?
- DOES THE PLUG-IN NOT WORK WELL, OR ARE YOU SAYING
- IN ALL MY YEARS OF DOING ALL THE GOOGLE STUFF,
I.E., IT JUST DOESN'T PLAY FRIENDLY WITH THE GOOGLE STUFF.
LIKE, IF I USE FIREFOX AND YOU USE I.E.
AND WE DID THE EXACT SAME SEARCH,
YOUR RESULTS COULD BE TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN MINE,
ASSUMING IT EVEN WORKS.
LIKE, WITH SOME OF THE GOOGLE DOCS STUFF,
IT DOESN'T EVEN WORK.

SO IT'S 9:45.
I KNOW I KEPT YOU GUYS FOR A WHILE,
BUT DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY
AND WE DIDN'T EVEN GO THROUGH ALL THE CONTENT.
YOU GUYS SEE WHAT I'M SAYING ABOUT 6 HOURS EASILY?
EASILY, BUT MY MAIN GOAL WAS TO SHARE A FEW WAYS
HOW IT WORKS, CONSUMPTION OF CONTENT,
CREATION OF CONTENT, AND THEN, IN THE CASE
OF, LIKE, WHAT I JUST DEMONSTRATED,
PUBLICATION OF CONTENT.
ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?
- YEAH. - YES?
- I'M SORRY. COULD YOU REPEAT THE STEPS FOR HOW TO GET
THE TOOL TO ESSENTIALLY ANIMATE FROM ONE TO THE OTHER?
I MISSED THAT STEP.
- I'M IN GOOGLE EARTH.
I'M AT MY TOUR, OK?
I CAN CLICK HERE, AND IT WILL PLAY THIS TOUR.
IF I HAVE MORE THAN ONE FOLDER HERE,
AS LONG AS I HAVE IT CHECKED, THAT'S THE ONE IT WILL PLAY.
I CAN CONTROL WHAT HAPPENS IN THE PREFERENCES UNDER "TOURING."
THAT'S WHY I CHECKED THIS, SO NOW IT WOULD SHOW
WHAT'S GOING ON AT EACH OF THOSE PLACE MARKS.
- RIGHT, BUT MY TEST TOUR, IT'S SHADOWED.
I CAN'T HIGHLIGHT.
I CAN'T CLICK ON MY TEST TOUR.
EACH OF THE INDIVIDUAL PLACES IS CLICKABLE,
BUT NOT THE TOUR ITSELF.

- MAYBE IT'S NOT POSTED. IS IT POSTED?
- WELL, DO ME A FAVOR. CLICK HERE
CLOSE ALL THIS STUFF OUT.
YEAH. THERE YOU GO.
NOW YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO THERE YOU GO.

AND SO NOW IF YOU CLICK HERE,
IT SHOULD GO THROUGH YOUR WHOLE TOUR.
YEP. YOU SEE? THERE YOU GO.
- OK. GREAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
- YOU'RE VERY WELCOME.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS?
SO DID YOU GUYS LEARN AT LEAST, LIKE, ONE
OH, OK. YES?
- I HAVE ONE QUESTION. - GOOD.
- YOU SAID A FEW MINUTES AGO YOU'RE GONNA BE DOING
ANOTHER GOOGLE WORKSHOP FOR PHOTO TOUR.
- WELL, YEAH.
I MEAN, BEST BET IS TO STAY IN TOUCH
BECAUSE I TRY TO STAY AS
THAT'S WHAT RACHEL AND ME WERE TALKING ABOUT.
I TRY TO STAY AS BUSY AS POSSIBLE
BECAUSE I'M A LIFELONG LEARNER AND THIS STUFF IS FUN.
SO I DO IT TWO WAYS.
I GIVE TONS OF PRESENTATIONS AT CONFERENCES
LOCAL, STATE, AND INTERNATIONALLY
AND THEN I'M ACTIVE WITHIN THE GOOGLE, THE DISCOVERY,
AND THE APPLE COMMUNITY.
SO, LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE, SATURDAY THE PHOTO WALK
BECAUSE I'M A HARDCORE PHOTOGRAPHER.
IT'S ONE OF MY EXTREME PASSIONS, SO I SHARE THAT
WITH OTHER EDUCATORS.
THE BIG PRESENTATION I GAVE AT ISTE IN DENVER
WAS ON PRESENTATION DESIGN, WHICH IS AN AREA
THAT I AM EXTREMELY PASSIONATE ABOUT
BECAUSE I REFUSED TO BE VICTIMIZED
BY DEATH BY POWERPOINT.
SO MY CONTRIBUTION IS TO DO WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTATIONS
ON WHAT EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION DESIGN IS,
BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I'M KNOWN FOR AMONGST ALL MY FRIENDS
AROUND THE WORLD IS, 98% OF THE IMAGES I USE
IN MY PRESENTATIONS ARE MINE
BECAUSE I GET OUT WITH MY CAMERA ALL THE TIME.
I HAVE A LIBRARY OF ABOUT 18,000 IMAGES ON MY COMPUTER,
SOME OF WHICH ARE SPECIFICALLY FOR
LIKE, I'LL TAKE A PICTURE OF THE NUMBER 3
SO IF A PRESENTATION EVER COMES UP AND I HAVE,
LIKE, 3 KEY THINGS, I'M USING MY IMAGE.
SO PART OF ME DOING THAT IS GOING ON PHOTO WALKS.
THIS IS MY SECOND YEAR IN A ROW OF DOING WHAT'S CALLED
PROJECT 365 IN WHICH YOU TAKE A PHOTO EVERY DAY
FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR.
THERE'S A WEB SITE THAT I GO TO CALLED DAILY SHOOT.COM
IN WHICH THEY GIVE AN ASSIGNMENT EVERY DAY,
AND IT KIND OF HELPS YOU GET A CREATIVE VIBE,
CREATE ALL THESE DIFFERENT TYPES OF IMAGES
TO BUILD A LIBRARY OF IMAGES.
SO I DO ALL KINDS OF STUFF.
I DO A LOT OF STUFF WITH MOBILE DEVICES,
MY STUFF WITH APPLE AND WHAT HAVE YOU,
THINGS WITH iLIFE.
LIKE, I HAVE A WORKSHOP AT C.U.E. COMING UP
THAT IS 3 HOURS.
IT'S BASICS OF PHOTOGRAPHY, BASIC EDITING,
AND THEN SLIDE SHOW AND DIGITAL STORY CONTENT CREATION
FROM THE IMAGES THAT YOU'VE EDITED.
SO TONS OF STUFF.
