The Grade 8's are going to be busy with the Industrial Revolution from next term. I love history and so have had great fun using Dipity Timeline as an example of what they will be creating in it. If you view this in Dipity, you will see that one can use videos, photo's, music and sites to enahnace your Timeline.
I have loved using it, although on the odd occassion various dates seem to default back to 1969! Not sure what that's about, but after some perseverence, I hope I have it sorted out.
I am looking forward to teaching it to them - and seeing the results of their work!
