Hi! My name is Linda and I teach fourth grade in Cincinnati. Instead of having my fourth graders do their typical paper/pencil Ohio History timeline, which is part of the state standards for social studies, I want to set up something online that they can access and create links, audio and even video. I would like to invite another class in our district to have access to it as well, so they can share their research and build on each others' ideas. Does anyone have any ideas for how I can use technology to do this? A wiki with a power point or screencasts? Thanks!
I've used timeglider a bit. Can be quite effective but found it a bit frustrating in regards to editing colour and while the zoom functionality is great, I don't know that my participants get it so if the wrong zoom seting is applied all text disappears and people don't actually read it. The only option is then to set zoom settings for each individual event which is not a big deal for small timelines but time consuming for large ones,
