This is a recording of a presentation by Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) at the Fall 2016 Kansas Google Summit in Maize, Kansas, on November 12. The title of the session was, “Geo-Maps for Geo-Literacy.” The session description was:
A Geo-Map media project can include text, hyperlinks, images, and videos connected to locations on virtual maps. Geo-Map projects can provide windows into events, concepts, places and stories which join disparate media elements into a cohesive digital narrative. Come learn how to use Google Map resources to start creating Geo-Maps and having your students create Geo-Maps to show what they know using multimedia combined with powerful, digital geographic tools!
All referenced resources from the session, including a 12 minute step-by-step video screencast tutorial, are available on http://showwithmedia.com/geo-map. Check out the podcast shownotes for more.
