Tripline is a great website I found out about through Twitter. You can use it to create personalised maps showing individual locations or a longer journey, including adding photos and extra information about the places. It requires you to sign in, but it’s free and you can link it to your facebook account so you don’t have to remember extra passwords. You can also browse other people’s maps without logging in.
Here is a map I made showing all the places I visited on my year abroad in 2006 and 2007. I haven’t managed to add photos to it yet, as I haven’t had time, but one day I hope I will.
What would you do with this website in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context it is used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. There are no wrong ideas!
