Using Google My Maps for Mind Mapping

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We know that graphic organizers and concept maps are best practice and extremely beneficial for learners. In this session, we will look at Google My Maps as a tool that can be used to be graphic organizers for projects in and out of a social studies classroom. Come prepared with a unit/concept that can be tagged to geographic locations, and we will explore the different features of Google My Maps to create engaging, visual study guides and mind-maps for students.
