ISDE5 – Education session 1

The education session at 2:00, focusing on spatial thinking, was interesting with an array of topics starting with ones that were very school focused and moving into areas where Digital Earth concepts can support education. I am going to save the other presentations for the audio, but I do want to point out that the 4th presentation was given by the folks from Elumenati who are using Elumens spherical visualization systems for educational use tieing immersion and scientific visualization. He made a great point kind of off handed that I latched on to and that I can not agree with enough…you have to get beyond the focus on technology to look at the content.
