For those of you asking about Chromebook tools to use for creating timelines, the collection below is a good place to start with. It features three of our favourite tools we have repeatedly covered in previous posts here in EdTech and mLearning. These tools are web based, simple and easy to use. Students will definitely enjoy working on them. Check them out and share with your colleagues.
HSTRY is a very good web tool for creating multimedia timelines in class. The process is very simple and easy. Just sign up either as a teacher or a student, choose the timeline you want to work on and start adding your events. You can add images, videos, and audio. The great thing about HSTRY is that it allows teachers to create a classroom and invite students to join it. Within this classroom, teachers will be able to share timelines with their students and view the ones they create. Teachers can also make their timelines interactive by adding questions for students to answer.
