Take a Virtual Tour of the Swiss Alps

This week I'm in Lugano, Switzerland to speak with teachers at the American School here. Completely coincidentally on Tuesday Google released new Streetview imagery of the Albula-Bernina railway through the Swiss Alps. Streetview cameras were attached to the train and now you can experience the views of traveling by train through the Swiss Alps. Take a look at the gallery of imagery here. I've embedded one of the many views below.

This update to Google Streetview imagery is another example of some of great virtual tours that your students can access through Google Maps and Google Earth.
