Google earth

Knowing how to plan a trip and make difficult tradeoffs between time, distance, money and which sights to see.  Understanding how to navigate Expedia and compare reviews on Trip Advisor and use Excel to craft a budget.  Seeing how Google Earth can show you the world – from 22,000 miles away or as close as ten feet, all without leaving your home.

All important 21st century skills, and far more important for inspiring critical thinking and great questions than any textbook ever written.
