      Hello, I'm teaching Geoscience in high school. Does anyone have copies of the lesson plans using NASA WorldWind? The Geomorphology course lectures and science achieveessays using WorldWind were developed by Jerry Davis (San Francisco State University)? They were mentioned in this book: Teaching Geographic Information Science and Technology in Higher Education (Editors: David Unwin, Kenneth Foote, Nicholas Tate, David DiBiase).
