Using maps in any subject provides visual input and important points of reference for students. Whether it is following a character in a book, going on a field trip, comparing statistics of different regions, or measuring sections of the Earth, maps add enrichment to any lesson. Maps can have inserted on them text, images, videos and even websites with additional information. Print outs of the information boxes can be printed to continue the lesson when not at a computer. The ten assignments in this course will show the participant how to create various information boxes on maps to be used in all lessons. The maps can be used to introduce and enrich a subject, or even as means for a presentation or an assessment. Information will be presented so that the participants can transfer this information to Google Earth, Sky and Water, if they want to explore those realms. This class is appropriate for all educators N-12, ELA, Social Studies, Math, Science, LOTE, ESL, Special Education, the Arts, Physical Education, Guidance Counselors and Social Workers.
