How I Use It
We used it in Grade 6 for a timline on the lives of a President that the student go to pick. Students stayed on task, loved the ability to add images and also historical dates on a timeline during their President's life. We did have a bit of internet issues but think was due to the "bandwidth" that was required by our content and others in the building using internet also. The students stayed engaged and on-task during the course of the project. We were able to complete our timelines within a one week span. The ability to be web based allowed them to share their examples to our School Board during a "Technology Night". Really Cool.
My Take
Meograph was very easy to use. We liked to use for building a visual timeline that included images, voice over, and maps. The interface was a little "cluttered" up and didn't present very well visually due to "extra" parts of the screen that we couldn't minimize.
