Google Maps for Educators Videos

Contour Education is a website dedicated to providing "introductory and advanced training for educators in the field of spatial technologies (Google Earth, GIS, remote sensing, GPS and more) that cater to the specific needs of teachers today."  The website is run by geography teacher Mike Law.

On Contour Education's YouTube page, Law has posted seven videos on how geography teachers can use Google Maps beyond the simple "look at your house from above" trick.  The videos are basic but it is a good introduction for teachers who want to do more with Google Maps.
