Timeline Resource and Creation Tool

This tool is a really interesting one in that it allows for both creation of timelines to be saved or shared as well as a database which searches for timelines of various topics.

Some of the topics that students can look up timelines for are:

Notable People
Parts of the World
Science and Technology
Society and Culture
World History

Within these major topics are sub-topics to specify the timelines that fit the user's search best.

These timelines would work really well during research projects or units as well as during extensions of major concepts to provide that visual connection. They would also work well for STAAR-like questioning surrounding a graphic.

The timelines, both created and published, can provide further digital resources like embedded videos, images, etc.; making them an interactive experience for the user.
