From Learning 2.008: Google Maps Embed

Up in Shanghai right now, at the Learning 2.008 Conference.

Just going to play right now and see if I can successfully embed this map into my blog.

What is it? It's from Google Maps containing placeholders that I created.

What do I want to do with it? I want to get all of my students in as collaborators on a class map, where we would place important information about people / events in the accurate location.

That's very important for a Humanities classroom. I'll see if I can find a better "finished" Google Map to show what I'd "like" the final product to look like.
