One of the great things that I have enjoyed about blogging is communicating with people all over the world. Recently, I had a message from a reader Valeria from Tallinn, Estonia who brought to my attention a great website called myHistro. This is a great site that combines maps, timelines, images, video and puts it all together in a presentation format. This is a great tool to teach students about a sequence of events like battles and other historical events. Click the link below for an example of a basic myHistro presentation on the battles of the Civil War.
This is a great tool to be used in the classroom. Check it out at www.myHistro.com and thanks again to Valeria for bringing it to my attention.
