This online mapping tool allows you to see and create placemarkers added to interactive maps (powered by Google). Maps include "stories," photos, videos, and comments and ratings from other users. Manipulate the map as you would on Google Maps (zoom, drag, etc). Using your membership, click to add a new placemarker, enter a "story," title it, and upload pictures or video. You can also edit your profile, view places created by you or any author you choose to "follow" and more. Visit this "story" we made in Reston, Virginia (west of Washington, DC) for a sample placemarker full of teaching ideas left by our review team "captain." Mapskip allows you to zoom in and out (using the arrows) and scroll across the map in any cardinal direction. You can view the entire world, or individual cities. Red hands are used to represent placemarkers created by users. There are special features available for teachers upon registration. See their blog entries for more details about these features and ways to see only content created by your students or classmates. The Mapskip blog is written by the MapSkip staff to explain new features and tools. Registered members are able to comment on any updates there, as well. MapSkip is now updating their platform. Current users can still access Mapskip. TeachersFirst will update this review with the new platform information as soon as it is available.
