Challenge 6- Personalized Map


You will create your own Personalized Map around your learning this semester.  We will use Google Maps and their pins to document our learning.  Here is a video to show you how to access your own map

This video will show you how to add pins to your Personalized Map.

Let's begin by looking at what the information in each of your pins should look like- you will have to decide what works best for you.  This example (below) sets the bar high and is the one you should follow if you are aiming to do well in the course.  Some highlights include: a picture that gives you a sense of the topic that is discussed (with credit given); citation in case going back to the original source is helpful later; an Essential Question to help focus the learning; a comprehensive write up that includes statistics to analyze the topic.

So that's what you need to think about in terms of pin quality.  Now... how many pins do you need?  You will determine how much you want to learn in the class and how well you want to do.  Here is an example of pin density that is solid for students who want to do really well.

You'll want to build out a lot of pins and get ready for our assessment using these pins as your content.  Some questions for you to ask: Are there blank areas with no pins?  If so, you might want to target that area and look up a current event.  Are you missing a pin in important countries (speaking geopolitically here) such as China or India?  If so, you'll want to target those as well.

Please let me know if I can help you in any way with your Personalized Map.
