An innovative means to explore history using mapping, imagery and text.
Very nice interface in the way that mapping can be used as well as the accompanying images and could be a great jumping off point for further research and to inspire curiosity. This tool can be differentiated in that a student can either focus on one place or they can create an entire tour of an area and go deeper into the environment, change, demographics, etc.
How I Use It
This tool is great for exploration of a location or place over time. Students get to visibly create a sort of timeline wherein they can see images of a (usually known or landmark) place. A plus is that it interfaces with Google which students are familiar with and there is also an app for Androids and iPhones which students tend to like.
