Now, your Google Account has these tools right in Drive, through a tool called MyMaps. From Drive (you need to use a more full featured web browser for this like on a laptop or Chromebook), select New, then More, and you will see MyMaps there. You can also just go to MyMaps. If you are accessing your education account and you don't see it there, contact your IT support person and ask to have it turned on (I turned it on for a school I consult with, quite easily through the administrator panel). With just a few clicks, MyMaps allows you to:
-Create a personalized map or tour
-Add placemarks for each important location, either on a macro level (across a wide geographic area) or micro, such as a neighborhood or park
-Name your placemarks and write a description
-Add a photo to the placemark. This is my favorite feature because you can do so from a Google Search, instantly creating a visual support.
-Embed YouTube clips related to the location, making your map more experiential
-Because this is all done in Drive, saving is automatic and collaboration features (sharing and editing between users) are also available.
Here's a nice tutorial to give you some more info:
Check out Google MyMaps and consider making a map for or with your students- it's also a great telepractice tool!
