    I’m a Latin teacher and I’ve used the MyMaps feature to have my students create personalized tours of Rome for themselves. Each student has researched a particular attraction in Rome and created a short presentation, which I combined into a large class presentation. Students viewed the presentation and then picked 10 places in the city they would like to visit. I had students trace their itineraries using MyMaps.
    I like the idea of having them collaborate together to make their itineraries- perhaps I’ll try that next year!

      That’s awesome to hear Beth! I feel I can differentiate the map better when I allow students to collaborate. I can set different layers for what I want students to plot based upon their needs. Also having students collaborate is something I’m trying to do more in all of my work with my class, I want students to learn from not only myself but the others in the room as well. Let me know how I can help you if you have questions!!

    Hey Caleb,
    I am just trying this out with some undergrads and I can’t find a way to allow students to edit a map if they don’t have google accounts, did you have to ask your students to sign up for accounts?
    thanks

    Yes, I am trying something like this for the end of the year. I will have 6 groups of 4, and each group will have 2-3 countries representing a region of latinamerica. This year, I will have each group create their own map, but is it possible to have all 23 students on one map? If so, I would have each member of each group be in charge of one layer (3 key cities, 3 typical foods, 3 historical sites, 3 recreational activities). My concern is that having that many users on one map will slow the map load time. What are your thoughts?
