Maps provide a visual way to share a lesson, but also a great way for students to share what they have learned. This session will provide hands-on” opportunities to learn how to create a map and a variety of ways you can implement Google My Maps into your classroom. A highlight will be participating in a Google My Map Breakout! This will be a fun learning experience for everyone and will leave you with the tools you need to share with your students the next day.”
