How to Embed Google Street View Imagery Into Your Blog Posts

This morning I received an email from someone who had seen my recent post about the Google Maps Street View Special Collections. She wanted to know how I was able to display the imagery and keep it interactive in my blog post. The quickest way to explain how to do that is to show it in a screencast video. That video is embedded below.

Applications for Education
As I pointed at the end of the video, embedded Street View imagery into a blog post is a good way to get all of your students to quickly look at the same geographic place. This is handy when you're pressed for time and or you want students to have blog-based discussion about a place.
