A Google Time Line

Take a look at this very cool timeline generator I have found. You really need to take a few minutes to look at http://timeline.knightlab.com/#. In short, students use Google Spreadsheet to collaborate and build a rich and intuitive timeline, incorporating all sorts of media: Youtube videos, Flickr pics, Tweets, Google Maps, Wikipedia articles – the list goes on. It honestly hits every EdTech-related Common Core state standard, from publishing and integrating digital media, to utilizing proper citation and sourcing skills.

It’s collaborative; it’s media-driven; it’s authentic; it’s engaging.  It's amazing!  
Take a look at these samples: 

Leave a comment and tell me how you are going to be able to use this tool in your classroom. I can't wait to hear what you come up with!
