Comment from: Professor Valdemir Mota de Menezes, the Scribe

Good morning gentlemen,
I was recently playing a stroll through my world, visiting the places where I lived, worked and strolled through the use of Google Earth. I believe that most students have used this technological resource, even before the proposal is this educational activity. This ability to fly over the world and still be able to walk the streets of major cities in the world, certainly gives us pleasure, the pleasure of discovery, the pleasure of being able to fly, the pleasure of traveling the world. It is true that the resource is limited, because the images are not in real time. However, as things do not change from one day to night, the experience is very real.

I was visiting the School Vila Mirim in Praia Grande/Brazil, where I taught this year the discipline of History, curious that in front of the image of the school building, I parked my bike, went to a surprise. I've also Esmeraldo Tarquin School in San Vicente/Brazil, where did stage in previous years, when he did a degree in History. In this virtual travel was also in polo Unimes in Santos, at Av Nébias Advisor.

The curious thing is that through this tool we can get to one hundred two hundred meters away from Earth and can view the school environs. The buildings can realize the social class that attends the school. Often a school is in a beautiful neighborhood, but in the corner of the image you see a slum, or how often talk now: poor community. Dali has many students. So we need to look at the school of a distant vision to perceive the surroundings and the entire population moving to that institution.
