Over the years I’ve opted for timelines over various presentation tools because (as a history teacher) they tend make it easy for students to demonstrate a historical narrative and or demonstration causation among events. I’ve used quite a few timeline generators in my classes: Timetoast, dipity, capzles, etc. However, HSTRY is by far the best, most user-friendly tool that either I, or my students have used. HSTRY makes organizing your classes easy and allows students to easily pull in mult-media to enhance their timeline. The manner in which the timeline is set up allows the student to create more than a timeline, but to create their own story and tell it in a manner of their choosing. It is really a remarkable tool that helps students reach higher levels of understanding and reaches the highest levels of the SAMR model for integration of technology in the classroom. I look forward to continue using and passing on to others how HSTRY can improve student understanding.
