Learning with digital timelines

July 11, 2016

part of the timeline teaching guide at Vanderbilt

Creating a time line, collaboratively or individually, can be an effective learning activity. Derek Bruff’s recent piece, “Teaching with Digital Timelines,” provides practical examples and a link to a thorough teaching guide created at Vanderbilt (image above).

Many tools are available

Four of the most popular timeline-specific sites are Tiki-Toki,  Dipity,  Histry, and  Preceden. A newer entry in the market, MyHistro, lets users combine a timeline with a map (see the slides below). And if you’re not averse to getting just a little geeky, with Timeline.js you can enter data in a Google Sheet and generate an embed code for a web page.

Even more resources!
