Video game competitions are taking off on campuses nationwide, with more than 10,000 students playing in the biggest college league, 4,400 more than last year.
Paul Carey's insight:
I wonder how long it will be before eSports starts showing up as a trend on the Horizon report.

Paul Carey's insight:

I am planning to create a grade level Google Maps login for each grade level.  My students can use this instead of individual logins when we use Google Maps for a technology project.  After a student has created a map, they can access it again just by finding their name on the list of maps on the left side of the screen once they log in.

 

Update:  Following instructions Doug posted at https://sites.google.com/site/custommapsforteaching/manage-your-maps, I created maps for my grade levels with the user name scheme dacula2carey, dacula3carey, etc.  I think these will be exceedingly useful for technology projects this year!

 

Update:  I have been experimenting with Google maps and found one that highlights the entire state of Georgia.  This may be useful to show students first, so that they can have a more clear idea of the state's boundaries.  But it is too heavily shaded to be able to see the Satellite images very clearly.  https://www.google.com/mapmaker?iwloc=0_0&fmi=0_0&gw=39&fid=9867728478774722903:7387236069664559335&dtab=overview&ll=34.228285,-84.013258&spn=3.097281,5.097656&t=h&z=8&lyt=large_map_v3

Custom Maps for Teaching

Paul Carey's insight:

Amazing technology project ideas for 2nd, 3rd, 4th grade shared by Doug Doblar at the Gwinnett Digital Learning Conference 2014.  Summary of 2nd grade project:  Students start by looking at a Google terrain map for the three mountain regions in Georgia and making HOUSING/SHELTER predictions (Where would I live in that region?  What would I eat?).  Then ask some thought provoking questions:  What would you build your house out of?  Etc.  Finally have students draw their own maps showing the three mountain regions.  Summary of 3rd grade project:  Students mark places important in the life of a famous person they must know about (Frederick Douglass, etc.) onto a custom Google map.  Start by marking spots they can remember, then look up some more via research.  Summary of 4th grade project:  Same idea but with important places in the Colonies.  Can follow up with a map you make for them of the American Revolution battles.  Students can relate that map back to the one they made.  Tip:  Make the kids look back at the map over and over again to make it accurate.  Students don't intuitively put things onto the map in the right place.
