Have you ever thought about using interactive mapping to teach English Language Arts? By creatingGeoTours,you can do just that!
A new feature on National Geographic’s MapMaker Interactive lets you create your own set of links, or a GeoTour, that you can save and share with anyone. Creating, sharing, and collaborating on geotours can be a great project for students in a range of subject and content areas, or a useful teaching tool for educators in a variety of settings. Students can turn reading into an interactive experience using images, links, markers, and text to highlight and annotate geographic locations in fiction and nonfiction texts.
