Virtual Road Trip

Community Review for Google Maps
I think that the current version allows for some catchy classroom integration. This app allows for applications at all levels of the SAMR model. As described above, it would probably be Augmentation. To achieve redefinition, I would modify the current lesson to have students create a shared map and include relevant locations.
How I Use It
I used this lesson with my ELL students after completing a novel. I created a virtual field trip with key locations from the novel. I dropped pins and created questions at each virtual location. This provided a great visual for the students as well as provided them an opportunity to complete the assigned task in a non-traditional way.
