In the ClassroomIf you only plan to VIEW timelines, no extra skills are needed at all! If you plan to comment or add a timeline, you must register. Users must be able to use embed codes to place timelines in a specific site, blog, or wiki.
Consider creating a class account with a single login and password. Students can sign up to create timelines to keep track of student work. Ask students to initial their timelines as well to assign ownership.
Create a new timeline, upload or choose an image, create a title, and select a category. Add a date to your timeline along with a title for that date, a description, and a link if you wish. Create time spans between points in the timeline that are also labeled. Share to many possible sites such as facebook or twitter or use an RSS feed. Click "embed/share" to copy a direct link that can be shared with others or an embed code that can be used in a blog, wiki, or other site.
Opportunities to use this resource are endless. Every topic in history, literature, sciences, and the arts have dates and events that have been recorded. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to learn about the history of the Olympics, famous people, events, literature, and more. Have students create timelines for research projects. Use the timeline as a visual tool to discuss events in literature works, or the life of a scientist, political figure, or pop artist. Create animal life cycles, author biographies, or even timelines of the events and causes leading to a war. Make a time line using local, national, or international current events. Elementary students could even interview grandparents and create a class timeline about their grandparents' generation for Grandparents' Day. For collaboration, link up with another classroom in another town (or another country) to build a time line that shares events in each local area so students can see what was happening at the same time in another location, maybe in the opposite hemisphere (compare weather and seasons!). Students can use the timeline as a backdrop during presentations to remember events that need to be discussed during the presentation. Student groups can work on different topics of the subject that will be shared with the rest of the class. For example, in studying World War II, one student group can create a timeline of Japanese occupation, another of the German occupation and so forth. The timelines are perfect to share on your interactive whiteboard or projector.
