Meograph is a digital storytelling tool that launched this summer. Using Meograph you can create a digital story that uses a timeline, a Google Map, images, videos, and your narration. I like the service enough that I have included it in a couple of workshops this summer and fall. Meograph recently launched a new education page on which they are featuring examples of using the service in education. I've embedded one of the samples below.
Applications for Education
offers a nice way to create narrated map-based and timeline-based
stories. Much of what Meograph offers can be accomplished in Google
Earth. However, Meograph is browser-based so that students can create
stories even if they cannot install Google Earth on their computers.
