Last Week I began exploring Google My Maps and shared Amazing Race Activity that I learned from Josh Gauthier. I made a quick demo to share with teachers in my school to hopefully spark their creativity.
This week I was contacted by Josh's wife Rebecca that she was using My Maps to study Africa. She added some cool challenges and some information all to 1 map. I think it created an environment where she was both instructing and allowing for students to create and learn.
The continuation of these examples inspired me to use the tool for this week's chat.
The plan is for you to venture into the map and check out the visuals included while paying attention to the location and the question. Return to the #sstlap chat and answer the question. I will then post the next map and you will find the question and information in the new map.
I don't want to ruin the experience so I am only going to share the first map with you so you can get acquainted with the concept. You will have to wait until Thursday to find out more.
Q1 #sstlap The TLAP journey begins.
As you go through the activity, pay attention to the locations- there maybe a quiz at the end.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
