Today Rand McNally announced that it has launched a new online educational tool that offers dynamic maps with social studies content as well as reading programs and writing lesson plans. The online service, Rand McNally World Atlas is on display at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference and Expo through July 1, 2014.
The World Atlas lets teachers access historical maps, boundaries and demographics on present day maps; create custom maps; and share maps with students, teachers and other classes. Educators can print out a fully populated or outline map of any place in the world.
World Atlas is aligned with state and the Common Core standards. The product is available via annual subscription from Rand McNally. For more information on World Atlas, or to sign up for a free online demo, visit World Atlas.
