January 30th – myHistro

Back on January 13th, I discussed a helpful hack to show your iPhone or iPad on your laptop – I found that as I returned back to school for the Spring 2016 semester. I’ll be finding a lot of new resources and bringing them here, and today I feature another one.

January 30th – myHistro

myHistro is a website which is so simple, it’s brilliant and I’m sorry I didn’t know about it sooner.  myHistro is simply a way to mark the location, time and post text, pictures or videos of anything you want to tell a story about.  It’s a great visual alternative to the traditional timeline by making connections to what’s happening in the world at the same time, but different locations.

Greek mythology and Homers Odyssey seem to be commonly taught in 9th Grade, why not have them create points in time with a location attached so they can see the Odyssey come alive, rather than have to imagine in books?  For my classes, I hope to use it to show how the Internet (as we know it today – was called different names back then) was being developed by multiple people with a similar idea to connect the world.

myHistro is free to sign up – so start a visual timeline today!
