Describe one digital tool or resource you found useful this class. How did you use it and why was it useful?

For my Social Studies class we used Google Maps and created our own maps. Before we were assigned this project I did not know you could use this feature on Google Maps. Google Maps itself is a very useful resource. Google Maps is useful for directions, seeing locations and now I know you can design maps for others or yourself. In this class we had to design a map and pin point locations that related to us and our life, such as schools we had previously attended, hometown, etc.

Describe a tool, app, or resource you are hoping to use in the future. What would you use it for?

I don’t really feel like I have a need to make a map using Google Maps, the only reason I ever use google maps is for directions. If using safari counts, then I hope I can continue to use it in the future and I will use it for research.
