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.

Great overview - she made it seem to be a user-friendly process. I'm going to try it in my classroom this fall.

Good information, but I have a question: You did not show how to get to whatever link you used, and just knowing the most basic info. is helpful. Where can I get your links and other notes? Where do I begin? I went to google maps, but I couldn't find what you were showing.
