Tiki-Toki for Creative Presentations
101 Days of Free Tech for Teachers, Day 59
Create beautiful and interactive timelines with Tiki-Toki. This site allows teachers and students to choose from a variety of categories and color coding for timeline events. You can actually choose to view your timeline in 3D. Images and videos are easy to integrate, and all timelines can be shared with anyone. Teachers can use timelines for history projects or even as a school journal. Tiki-Toki is free, but they also offer special pricing for teachers for a year-long membership that includes accounts for up to 50 students.
How We Decide Which Free Tech Tools to Feature
Yup, there are thousands of apps, tools, services, websites, and other offerings — many free — designed for teachers and students. So, how do we sort through all of those to feature the ones which are most useful and interesting? Well… we start by sorting through thousands of these things… then we talk to the presenters in the SimpleK12 Teacher Learning Community and watch their videos closely… then we talk to many of the members in the Teacher Learning Community, teachers just like you who are using these apps and tools day in and day out. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years and have, in that time, developed a sense for what’s good and bad. Have we missed something that we should feature here? Most certainly. So, let us know in the Comments section what we should take a look at and we’ll throw ’em into the hopper.
