On Friday I shared a post about using HSTRY.co to create multimedia timelines that include quiz questions for students. HSTRY is just one of a handful of excellent tools that students can use to create multimedia timelines. In the playlist embedded below I provide directions for using HSTRY as well as five other timeline creation tools.
If I was looking for a tool appropriate for elementary school, I would use Read Write Think's timeline tool. MyHistro is a good choice for folks who have access to iPads. The History Project is excellent for recording audio to include in a timeline. HSTRY is the best choice if you want to include quiz questions in your timeline. And Timeline JS is the most flexible of all of the tools in this list.
