3D model lets you fly through 17th century London

This is absolutely fantastic. Imagine the implications of teaching history with tools like this at your disposal.

In the video below, the fly-through starts at about :50.

    It’s nice. I was thinking about this last week after my daughter finished reading her school book to me one night. Her book was about Tudor England, which is roughly about the same sort of period as the video. Seeing the illustrations in the book, it seemed to me that lots of kids would really enjoy being able to play a character in a realistic computer generated environment like that, and could actually learn so much about the life and time of the people and places.

    The video above is nice, I wonder what it’s for? From the learning point of view it’s missing anything to do with people, life, conditions, etc.
