Outline
•  Why Interactive mapping?
•  Engaging students with spatial concepts
•  On the Line: Examples of interactive maps
   for student engagement
•  Tools and resources for creating
   interactive maps for the classroom

While this looks fun…




It’s	
  only	
  engaging	
  to	
  a	
  select

Interactive is essential
•  Print maps are great… but do not capture
   the attention spans of today’s students
•  Examine curriculum topics from
  –  Spatial perspective
  –  Temporal perspective
•  Integrate data from multiple sources
     •  Ex. Fault lines, earthquakes, and population data
•  Interactive ≠ expensive or difficult
