Readings and Resources for Politics of Participation (led by Johnna)

Google Maps (led by Leah, now on 5/24)

Before Class

  • Make sure you have a Google account
  • Explore MapCruch and be prepared to discuss
  • Use Google Maps to look up directions from Tokyo Japan to New York, New York, specifically looking at instruction #24.

After Class

  • Use Google Maps to look up a birds’ eye view of your home or other location familiar to you. See if you can get a StreetView image. Capture the satellite image (as close as you can get) and/or the StreetView image and post on your blog.
