Google Earth 5.0

I’ve been a Google Earth user almost since its inception. Another time, I’ll say more about how I’ve used it in a classroom setting. But it is worth posting, for anyone who will take the time to read, that Earth 5.0 is out, and is wonderfully upgraded. Click on the Earth 5.0-generated image below to watch a Jing screencast. (The video is a high-resolution file (153 MB)–if you have a slow connection, you might pass this one up. Even with a mid-sized pipe, let the file buffer for a while after you access it but before you play it.)
