Students Exploring Events & Telling Stories with My Maps

from Shake Up Learning's Kasey Bell

There is a power in students creating their own maps to help them visualize information or to tell a story. An example of this is two students who collected the Oral Histories of Route 66 and displayed it on a map. My Maps is can be used for students as they explore events in literature, historical events or even as they study current events. The beauty of My Maps is they are collaborative and can be exported to be brought in as a layer of Google Earth. Kim Randall, @scubagirl812 did a super session on Mapping Made Easy with Google My Maps!
