Tell an Interactive Story with Timelines. Timelines can be more than a line of dates — they can tell a story! This training session explores how you or your students can use two free Web tools to create timelines that tell stories that include dates, events, and entries that indicate their importance.
Creative Ways to Share Ideas and Classwork. Do you have all these great ideas, but you can’t decide the best way to share? Do your students need a creative way to share their research or stories that they have written? Enjoy a fast-paced preview of a variety of sites that can be used creatively to share ideas via comics, animations, word clouds, and timelines!
