Today in Tech Class we were exposed to a number of Web 2.0 Sites and Tools. One of the sites that I found to be a great option for my World History classes was TimeToast ( www.timetoast.com ). This is a free tool that allows teachers and students to create time lines dealing with topics on history, music, film, books, their own life, famous people, etc. It is an innovative and fun way to bring events and dates into the learning process. This tool could definitely be used effectively in the elementary, middle school, and high school classroom. The following is a link to a sample time line that I created about my life: http://www.timetoast.com/timelines/the-life-times-of-the-shane-hall
Day #2 of Mr. Kosater's "Implementing Technology in the Classroom" and I am blown away with the shear number of FREE options available to teachers online! Super excited to teach at a school not afraid to take steps to educate and equip students to learn in the digital age.
