Google Earth Education Initiative

After I gave a quick demonstration on virtual globes' education potential at yesterday's SPACE organizers meeting in Santa Barbara, several participants asked about the Google Earth Education Initiative. The program's coordinator is currently on sabbatical, so response may be somewhat delayed. Nevertheless, here's the information:

Google is investing its heart and soul in education. All the way from the Library Project to the Keyhole-Google Education Initiative where we are distributing (on request by faculty or administrator) a free license of Google Earth PRO.

Spread the word. If you're a teacher, professor, or school administrator, send me an e-mail, requesting Google Earth PRO and I will send you a 1 page authorization document, followed by a free license for one year.
