Back in September I helped my 8th grade daughter create a “geo-map” project for her English class. I shared about this in the post, “8th Grade GeoMap Project For English: Road to Hiroshima.” Today after school I shared a videoconference with educators in Corpus Christi, Texas, on “Google Maps and Google Earth.” After our videoconference, I recorded a 6 minute screencast demonstrating how Sarah and I created that geo-map project together using Google Maps Engine Lite.
Here are the links I shared during today’s videoconference.
Elementary Google Lit Trip Example: “Possum Magic” by Mem Fox
The 2 minute, 17 second video from November 2013, “Take a tour of the new Google Maps,” has a good overview of the navigational changes in the “new” Google Maps.
