The Travelogue team has been exploring how other sites are using maps as digital pedagogical tools. We are also connecting with possible collaborators, including other mapping projects, educational institutions and libraries.
In an effort to be participate in the conversations happening on social network platforms, Travelogue has been monitoring how Twitter is being used by similar projects. We have explored hashtags that are being used in reference to maps, are concerned with literature, teaching, English, History, Social Studies, high school teachers, lesson plans etc. We have also been following the conversations/posts on the Humanities, Arts, Science and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC) site.
On the development front we are playing with several WordPress Child Themes to see which will best work for the Travelogue site and the ESRI Storymap we will be using. Research wise, we have completed a workable draft of the Ernest Hemingway content spreadsheet which we will use to construct Travelogue’s Ernest Hemingway StoryMap.
The Travelogue Commons site has a Research section that is categorized and features helpul resources, compiled during the progression of the Travelogue project. For example, Esri Storymaps for Education.
Thank you for following our journey. We look forward to sharing our connections with others in the GIS world.
