Cool Tools for Learning
A survey of new technology tools you can use to enhance the learning experience, inside and outside the classroom, including using digital cameras to make panoramas and 3D; viewing objects and data on line in a map-based environment, and integrating this view with aerial photographs and satellite imagery and doing GIS queries on this data; integrating these same views with video and audio; digital microscopes, inexpensive, yet able to capture 200x imagery to the Web, or into time lapse and/or movie-making; web meeting tools that let you share audio, video and screens over the Web for collaborations and low-end video conferencing; peer-to-peer applications, where clients input data and information over the Web, with each other, or to a database.
