Global Story Maps: Geolocalization and Storytelling using Pictures and Maps.

Geolocalization and Storytelling: Pictures and Maps with Stories to enhance outdoors learning experiences.

Our outdoors learning experiences have used pictures, maps, videos, and stories to enhance our face-to-face and online courses. We have used Google Maps to geolocalize landmarks, bridges, ports, churches, recycling bins, and companies plus may other places useful in topics in our courses. We have brought the learning experiences outside the classroom. We have used our field trips, global travels, and events to document our visits using our own pictures. Many of them have been shared via social media.

We have also created MyMaps drawn by hand. They have been used in whiteboards in classrooms and shared in online courses and social media slides. #DrJoseMaps

We have integrated pictures, maps, and stories using ArcGIS Story Maps. It has been a great tool to create presentations, slideshows, and videos. We decided to add all #GlobalLearningMaps and #GlobalStoryMaps in one StoryMap.
