MapMaker, National Geographic’s simple online classroom map tool, provides educators with an engaging way to teach key geographic concepts, 21st-century skills, and large datasets. This completely rebuilt, redesigned, and reimagined product helps today’s learners understand how the world is interconnected and master the geographic competencies and knowledge necessary for a sustainable future.
Despite there being as many sources for maps and mapping tools as there are classroom use cases, teachers around the country often find themselves frustrated with the options available to them. National Geographic brings three unique value propositions to the education market: their learning framework, Explorer-first content and programming, and their world-renowned expertise in maps.
Underlying these principles is a focused content strategy aimed at providing educators with the most relevant maps and layers, searchable and filterable by grade, subject, and content type. MapMaker makes maps fun, approachable, and relevant for educators. MapMaker is the Cool Tool Award Finalist (2021) for “Best New Product or Service” as part of The EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest.
