It is useful when we want to involve students in a joint project and encourage them to be as creative as possible.
A timeline can be used for any topic where the order of events, the chronological order matters. We can use it when teaching history, but also when presenting a process or a succession of events.
For example, you can display historical events of a particular period with dates and inert notes to them with the most important facts.
It is not only for teachers - students can also create a timeline collaboratively when they recap on a topic.
In timeline creator apps you can use a variety of templates to make your own stunning and meaningful infographics in no time.
"A picture is worth a thousand words."
In our increasingly visual world we often prefer to look at a well-designed, informative poster with some text than read a long leaflet on the same subject. This is particularly true for our students, so it makes sense to present them the information in a form they can easily digest. An excellent tool for this is an infographic, which presents the information using images.
You can also use it to check understanding: ask students to present in an infographic what they have learned. It is also useful for organizing learning content from different parts of the curriculum. Units of measurement or historical events are a good example for this.
