Where can I get this technology?
I first heard about this website from a Tech for Teachers review at the Center for History and New Media. The website myHistro.com gives users the chance to make their own story, whether it be about history or even their own life. It is free to sign up and make a profile. You can share your events and stories with your friends and even co-author with them. There are no costs associated with the website and you are free to share your work with social media sites. This site makes it very simple to start and doesn't make you jump through hoops to use the resources.
