Abstract

In this project, the project team plans to use an interactive medium, Google Earth, to arouse students' interest in the history of architecture and urbanism. Google Earth is a digital geographic tool not unfamiliar to students. In recent years, many educators started to use Google Earth in the classroom. The software allows teachers to design creative ways to present course information. It can display data, maps, historical events, visually alongside lecture notes.
