Our next track 3 topic is Mapping & Geolocation Tools and includes all sorts of ways to explore our world through maps and more.

This lesson focuses on ideas for combining maps, photos, literature, history and more.

With the development of online maps and mobile geolocation apps, there are endless possibilities for educational uses. Whether it’s exploring far flung or nearby locations with street view, viewing historic maps overlaid in Google Earth, building customized “literature and history trip” maps or pinning scanned historic photos in HistoryPin or creating a QR code scavenger hunt, there’s something for everyone in this lesson.
