Once a month we’re sharing MUST SEE MAPS…just because they’re cool and sometimes the really cool stuff doesn’t fit into one of our tidy theme weeks. We love this one…it makes us feel like astronauts. Download it & you can be an astronaut too!

4-4e earthlapse app“Turn your iPad or iPhone into a window aboard the International Space Station. Experience stunning views of Planet Earth captured by NASA astronauts. Touch the views and control the planet with your finger. A truly amazing one-of-a-kind experience.

The app comes complete with 8 relaxing ambient space soundtracks, a clock, and worldwide weather from Weather Underground. Images courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center.”

We live in a society addicted to technology. More smartphones are being used in the classroom and in our offices every day. To help you leverage the technology available to you, we explore, try and share links to apps that can help you and your students.

Every week we select a new app and share its description in our “Apps We Love” column. We do not endorse devices from any one company or receive any kind of compensation for these features. We just share links to apps that can help you teach, learn, work and grow.
