Overview

Have you ever wanted to take your students on a journey without leaving the classroom? Perhaps you need a visual to help your students see the landscape of the places they are reading about in English or social studies. Or maybe you want your science class to take a tour that shows natural elements such as volcanos or deep sea vents. Let Google Maps take you there! In this webinar, Kim Munoz will show how to use the "my maps" feature to create an interactive tour that can include text, video, and images. In addition, she will share some examples of how this can be used in the classroom.

I enjoyed the information, but I had trouble following along using Google Maps on another computer with this information. It looks like Google Maps has really changed how it is set up. I couldn't find a My Maps link nor could I find a create maps red button, but there was a blue create maps link. This presentation might have to be updated to match what Google Maps and its tools looks like now.
