Need help in organizing your favorite websites? Diigo is a social bookmarking site that allows users to save websites, as well as tag them, add sticky notes and annotations, and share them with other users in various groups.
Tip: Sticky notes are an effective way to start a virtual conversation among teams of students on the merits of a website.
Create your story! Our Story permits users to develop and save collaborative timelines that can be personalized with annotations, photos, and videos. Stories (timelines) can be printed in book format, archived on DVD, or even sent as postcards.
Tip: Teach your students to develop content-specific timelines that are linked to the teaching of research and information literacy skills.
Capture your students' imagination with movie narratives based on primary sources. Primary Access is an online tool that allows students and teachers to combine text, visual, and sound elements, which are then combined to convey information about their chosen historical event or time frame. A library of Primary Access movies is available through a catalog by historical time period.
Tip: Encourage active learning: have students choose a historical event or time frame to research and synthesize their information through a Primary Access movie.
