There are so many more applications for mapping in the classroom beyond just geography and history. What about language arts, math, science, business, art, foreign languages? In this session, I'll be sharing the motherload of mapping resources for education and beyond. We'll discuss Google Maps, Google Earth, and many great tools outside the Googlesphere. And now with so many VR additions with Google Cardboard and Google Expeditions, there are even more opportunities to integrate mapping and geography into any curriculum. Specific curriculum examples, activities and MOOC's will be shared that you can take back to your class the very next day.
