Tech in the Social Studies Classroom: HSTRY

If you’re looking for something to make history come alive, I invite you to check out Hstry — https://edu.hstry.co/learn-more.  This tool allows you to create interactive timelines with your students; timelines that include quiz questions to check for understanding, and invite commentary and discussion between students, while integrating video, links and other media to add richness to your lessons.

Here is an example of a particularly relevant timeline: “Are there alternatives to Clinton and Trump?”

While the free version doesn’t include much in the way of features, the Premium upgrade is only $49/year and there are educational discounts available upon request.
