Today I am linking up with 


I recently attended the Reading, Writing, Math and More conference put on by SDE in New Orleans. The conference was fantastic. One of the sessions I went to was by Lori Elliott and she talked about Photo Mapo.




This app has completely changed how I viewed teaching Indiana history / geography. If you combine this app with Google Earth the possibilities are endless! This app allows you to add a map along with photos and descriptions. Michelle and I were thinking of using this with Indiana history. Our students can use Google Earth to type in Indiana landscapes, research that landscape, and then create using Photo Mapo. This would be perfect for studying the 50 states as well. 

This app allows students to create and make projects that look inviting! Just look at those pictures. Doesn't it make you want to go there?

  5. This is great. I have now heard about this twice from teachers, so it must be worth a thorough investigation! I am thinking it would be neat to have my 6YO try it out for his summer break. My only wonder is how does it share out?

    1. It would be great for your 6yo to try out. My kids had a blast using it on vacation. You can share the things you create using social media or you can email your creation.
