After the wonderful but time-intensive relationship with Twitter in my world history surveys last semester, I decided to take a break from group projects and social media. This semester I gave my students a chance to create their own uncompromising, individual vision for a history project. Using the free, web-based software provided by Tiki-Toki, my 260+ students all “translated” research papers they completed earlier in the semester into digital, interactive timelines available for public consumption. As I stated in my post concerning the Twitter project, I am a huge believer in the capacity for these types of digital projects to empower, inspire, and educate students through the use of such a student-centered approach to learning. Through the creation of these timelines, students learn a greater appreciation of chronology and periodization, the art of constructing a historical narrative fit for “everyman” usage, and training in the usage of a powerful digital toolkit. I’m happy to say it was extremely difficult to narrow it down, but below are the top ten timelines produced by my students this semester. Enjoy!
