Tripline

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.

Postcrossing

Postcrossing is a way of sending and receiving postcards to people all over the world. Registration is free and you can get up to five addresses when you first join. As you send more postcards you’re allowed to get more. Since I joined about two years ago I’ve sent 55 postcards and received 57. This is the range of countries I’ve been in contact with:

This is a set from the Flickr #eltpics stream.  Find out how to join in with #eltpics and take a look at some of the 40+ sets that we have created together so far. All of the pictures (including the ones above) are shared under a creative commons licence, meaning that they are available for teachers to use in their classrooms without having to worry about breaching copyright.
