A @Buncee Timeline Project in @BullisSchool US History Classes #edtechchat #edtech #edchat

I never featured this blog post that I wrote up with my US History teacher for our school’s Technology Blog:

US History teacher dilemma: In a thematic history class where you study American history by themes (politics, immigration, rebellion, warfare, welfare, discrimination) rather than chronologically, how can students keep track of the important events in American history?

Solution: A Buncee Timeline! This combines a powerful wall visual with an innovative, interactive online tool.
