This is the fifth post in my series of back to school resources. Two popular formats for student projects in my history classes are timelines and screen-casts. My students have done some amazing narrations of web resources and images to create informative movies using screen-casts as well as how to videos. Interactive timelines are always popular with students and the following are a list of sites that some of my students have used in the past. Some of these sites are very easy to use and quite powerful. I have also found that both screen-casts and timelines were not as popular at the begining of the year but seemed to become more popular as the year progressed.
Take a look at the list below and as always if you have any comments or websites sites that I have missed or ideas for these types of resources please let me know, as I get ready for the upcoming school year.
The following websites will help you create time-lines and screen-casts for your projects.
