A very interesting platform that teachers of younger students are using for them to create and share what they are doing. It seems to be more visually based rather than text based. It is free and right now has two versions, one for the classroom and another for home. It is in beta and if you sign up now it is free. Would love to hear what some of you think.
Very interesting app if you're using Edmodo and have ipads. Here's what it will do as per the company who contacted me:
"It's a versatile mapping tool for creating timelines, and an assessment platform for Edmodo users.
myHistro Extended in a nutshell.
- What makes it better than other apps out there?
Its comprehensive digital archive with stories created by historians. An unique way of generating tests. Hassle free and easy grading system and evaluation of students’ answers."
MAny teachers are using Edmodo and Timelines are important prewriting and graphic organizing tools. I'm very fascinated to see how this works and will see if there is someone out there using it so we can link to it from my blog.
- Who's it for?
Teachers. First and foremost History, Social Studies and Geography teachers. And for everyone else, who are looking for innovative ways teaching their subjects through dynamic storytelling.
- What is the coolest feature?
Generating tests with a few clicks. Removing the location, time, description or/and the title from all the public stories, and forming it into tests.
