Technology Guide: How To Use Google Maps for Navigation!
Imagine being able to get to where you want to go without any assistance from anyone (except Google!).
We love to see our community building on their independence and social interaction, and a wonderful way to achieve both of these things is by getting to places - like parties or activities - independently. Of course, that can be difficult for all of us when we don't know how to get to where we want to go.
With the assistance of technology like Google Maps, the road to your desired destination is just a few clicks away!
Through our Tech Guru - Technology Assisted Learning Program*, we created a series of 'how to' instructional guides that you can follow to help you learn some everyday technology-based uses that will help you become more independent and more connected.
How To Use Google Maps for Navigation
Today we're learning how to use Google Maps to help you get to the places you want to go. For example:
|1. Make your own way to your doctor's appointment.||2. Get to a social gathering organised with your friends.||3. Take your happy doggo for a walk in a new area.|
We've created a Tech Guru video guide and a downloadable written instruction guide to help you learn how to use Google Maps to get around.
