I've been accepted to Geo for Good Down Under
in two weeks. The workshop will introduce Google Maps API and Engine and Google Earth API and Engine as well as fusion tables for agencies working for public benefit.
I am a teacher and have moved from the classroom to working with schools who want to use spatial tech in the classroom. I have some background at uni in GIS and have experience with Google Maps and Earth as well as ArcGIS 3,9 and 10.
What resources are there out there that I might play with (and share with other teachers) as a simple way to get started with these tools before the workshop? Classroom-specific would be great, but any resources that effectively show the user how to create and publish great maps with these tools would be very appreciated.
