Creating Assignments To Explore Historical, Contextual, and Personal Connections
Jerod Quinn, Instructional Developer, Reinert Center
Assigning students to create a timeline can be an effective strategy to help make connections between historical events, personal experiences, or even characters in a text. Tiki-Toki is a web application that allows users to create timelines with photos, descriptions, and even videos in a fairly easy manner. Those timelines can be shared with a simple web link.
In this forum we will explore the basics of creating timelines using Tiki-Toki and discuss potential projects and objectives that a tool like this could help meet with your students.
