How I Use It
When dealing with certain students within the special education population, helping them find their way to key places is important. Even more important is helping these students develop the ability to find the way to these places on their own. Google Maps allows students to locate where they want to go and familiarize themselves with the way to get there via street view without leaving home or the classroom.
Although the approachability of Google Maps may not be the best for students with special needs, helping them use a tool that will be exceptionally worthwhile to them is great. It is relatively straightforward enough that the higher functioning students are capable of using the product on their own.
