Google's SketchUp Pro, a 3D modeling software application, is being offered at no cost to Virginia school divisions through statewide K-12 licensing grants. SketchUp Pro can be integrated into many subject areas, from mathematics and science, to computer technology and English, to pre-architecture and engineering classes (http://sitescontent.google.com/google-sketchup-for-educators/Home). It is also widely used with Google Earth to support creative, real-world applications for a tool that is commonly used by professionals.
If your division would like SketchUp Pro, the name and e-mail address of the division contact person should be sent to Teresa Coryell at email@example.com. She will also need to know which of the following license codes you wish to receive:
The attached Google statewide K-12 licensing information sheet describes technical requirements and support information for teachers.
