Video Timeline of Apollo 11 Moon Landing

I posted this link last night in the Friend Feed room for Free Technology for Teachers, but I don't think it got as much attention as it should have so I'm posting it here too. Mashable put together a list of eleven videos documenting the Apollo 11 mission. I encourage you to visit Mashable to see all of the videos, but I have embedded the "keynote" video below.


Applications for Education
This video timeline is a great example of how videos can tell story to your students. The video timeline also gave me another idea for a student project. Students in a history class could use a video creation service like Remix America or Animoto to create a series of videos about an event. The students could then arrange those videos to tell a story on a timeline.
