Google SketchUp
We are teaching our kids Google SketchUp in their computer class to improve their visual skills.
What is it ?
Google SketchUp is modeling software that
empowers students to be 3D designers.
SketchUp is a great tool for easily teaching
kids to construct 3D models of buildings,
trees, cars, and the like. You can use it as
a stand-alone tool, or in conjunction with
Google Earth and the 3D Warehouse.
Why use it?
Students can use SketchUp to:
• Visualize geometry and other
mathematical concepts.
• Create models to learn about architecture.
• Design full-scale 3D environments.
• Easily share designs with others via the Web.
