Share Where You Are From!

We’ve got educators all over the world who use Formative so we thought it would be cool to create a Google Map so that everyone can share where they are from. Thank you @omerkarabacak for sharing this idea! Thank you @Lisa_Scumpieru and @JenRoberts for helping us make it!

Here’s the map! It live updates so you can always check back to see other educators who’ve added their pins:

Steps to add your marker (where you are from) to the map

  1. Sign into Google and click here to access the Google map

  2. Select “Edit”

  1. Select the “marker” and place it on the part of the map, showing where you are from (you can use the zoom buttons to help place your marker)

  1. Add your name, what you teach, and something you love about that place. You can also add an image as well. (if you make a mistake, you can delete the marker and make another one. Just make sure not to delete another educator’s marker)!

Is it possible to embed the live map so we can see the updates here instead of having to click the map link?

Yes! Great idea! We just embedded it and it live updates!

I’m not allowed to use this feature due to school restrictions(? I tried and was blocked?), but I am working out of Durand, Illinois, USA.

Thanks for sharing where you are from and I am sorry that it’s not letting you edit the map. If you want, I’d be glad to add your marker to it :slight_smile:

Hi all, I am Niko PYP coordinator and teacher librarian from KIS International School, and even though it looks like I am the only one from Bangkok I happen to know that our MYP coordinator is using Formative as well.

I added myself and someone added me too though slightly off location :slight_smile:

So now there are two for me.

I am a 3rd grade Dual Immersion teacher in San Bernardino Ca. It is cool to see our Formative community spread all over the map.

Hola David acabo de insertar mi pin en el mapa. Por lo visto soy el único en Perú. Bueno es todo un reto representar a mi querido país con el uso de formative. Muchas gracias.
