Each year, on the first Tuesday in May, we celebrate National Teacher Day by highlighting the heroic contributions our nation's educators make on a daily basis. Today, the Google for Educators team is proud to announce the launch of the new Geo Education website at google.com/educators/geo. We hope that this site will serve as an easy-to-navigate, one-stop-shop for teachers looking to incorporate Google Earth, Maps, Sky, and Sketchup in their classrooms.

Whether you're approaching these tools as a first-time explorer or a seasoned pro, it's our hope that you will find helpful hints, compelling examples, and a vibrant community of fellow educators on the site. And if you're ready to take your expertise of Google tools to the next level, be sure to check out the Google Teacher Academy, happening at Google's Mountain View headquarters in June.

You can read more about Google for Educators on the Official Google Blog. From all of us at Google, kudos and many thanks!
