Online Interactive Mapping – Panoramic Maps Collection

Posted: September 12, 2007 in Critical Thinking, Education, Educational Technology, Instructional Technology, Interdisciplinary, Maps, School, School 2.0, Social Studies, Technology, Technology Integration

The Panoramic Maps collection at the U.S. Library of Congress is an online resource that can be used to compare and contrast present day maps and landscapes with those of the past. A “collection connections” page gives ideas on how to use these maps in the study of U.S. History, the arts and humanities, and how to challenge critical thinking skills. This is a great social studies resource but has many possibilities in an interdisciplinary setting. Enjoy!
