Thing 5 – photos + maps + apps

Wow, where did the last 4 weeks go? I’ve got some catching up to do.
I think History pin has great potential as a local history resource. I can see great use for it in the classroom obviously for history but also geography, literature, outdoor ed and more. It would be great to use in literature where real places are the settings – you could set up a tour showing the significant places of a novel.
Personally I haven’t had a lot of success. I have taken and uploaded a photo, it appears on my account but not on the map. Sometime when I’ve got more time I’ll try again.
I am looking forward to using history pin when I’m travelling in Europe later this year, I think it will offer some interesting insight into the places we visit.
Short and sweet but sometimes that’s how it has to be. What’s next?
