How To Make Embedded Google Maps Responsive? | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Embedding Google maps on your website is easy, but often times, just copying and pasting a piece of code is not the answer. If you embed maps a lot on your website, you might want to make them responsive to be consistent with your website.

Stephanie Sandifer's curator insight, July 26, 12:07 PM

I discovered ThingLink while teaching one of my online art classes.  It is a great tool for any blended learning environment, but was extremely useful for my 100% online class.  Students were able to annotate images to provide commentary on symbolism, artist intent, and historical context on the precise areas of the image where the comments were relevant.
