HipGeo - An App and Site for Sharing Travels

HipGeo is a service that is one part blog and one part photo app. Using HipGeo's Android or iOS apps you can take pictures and instantly post them to your HipGeo account. HipGeo geolocates your images for you. Using HipGeo apps you can bundle your images together to make one geolocated presentation or you can simply display them as single blog entries.

Applications for Education
HipGeo does have a strong social networking component so consider that before introducing it to your high school students (I wouldn't use it with students younger than high school). That said, HipGeo could be nice app for students to use if they travel abroad on a school trip and they want to quickly create shareable records of their trips.
