How I Use It
RWT Timeline allowed my students to quickly and easily build timelines to show their knowledge of events and occurrences in my social studies classroom. The ability to use the tool to "timeline" any events was great. There are no set dates or criteria on the timelines by default so that they can be highly customized to meet the needs of the individual assignment/project. Students had the ability save their timeline in a few different formats that can then be shared easily with me, the teacher, or their classmates.
My Take
RWT TImeline takes the boring, monotonous aspects of creating a timeline and throws them out the window. It allows for better creation through the use of images and media that simply can not be obtained when creating a timeline on paper. The ability to use a Google account in the program and be able to save/share the timeline also provides a tremendous set of ability for students. I would definitely recommend this to to any social studies teacher, and any other teacher that might have a need to build a timeline for their class.
