15 Integration Ideas for Teaching with Maps

Last Tuesday's #gafechat discussion I posed various scenario questions. One of the questions pertained to students learning about various locations in the world via maps. 

Here are the technology integration ideas that stemmed from our discussion. 

Have the students...

  1. use Periscope to see the world through the eyes of someone else. (@AlexaSchlechter)
  2. use My Maps to build collaborative maps with placemarks, video and images. (@alicebarr@THLibrariZenShakeUpLearningLISDTechie)
  3. show the different locations with streets, buildings, etc. via Google Earth.(@MLunoff)
  4. take a screenshot of the map using Awesome Screenshot Minus and annotate/add text. (@SPFTech_Treglia)
  5. build a tour around the world using Google's TourBuilder, so they can add text, images, videos and more. (@jcalvert4@LISDTechie)
  6. add maps to a Google Drawing or Google Slides and collaboratively add information about the location. (@MLunoff)
  7. build a map using Google Maps and a Fusion Table. (@VCSataylor)
  8. explore the locations via Google Maps/Earth street level. (kilgoretech)
  9. find locations via a scavenger hunt on Google Maps that ties to political and cultural geography. (@MattHarrisEdD)
  10. use Screencastify to record a video explaining how they used websites to identify the locations. (@MLunoff)
  11. identify locations via GeoGuessr, a game that requires you to guess a particular location based on street view. (@bluebutterflysm@MathDenisNJ )
  12. create an interactive map using batchgeo.com and Google Forms. (@kilgoretech)
  13. label a map using Thinglink - a tool that allows you to add text, videos, images and more. (@curryhj2000@AlexaSchlechter
  14. use Google Cardboard to experience locations around the world. (@LISDTechie)
  15. use Scribble Maps to build an interactive map. (@LISDTechie)
