Rebecca Louise Melia's curator insight, April 9, 2015 6:32 PM

After researching their own life and milestones, students can create a list of significant events and then use this simple app to create a timeline of their lives. Timelines can be made using "before birth", and then each year of age so far. Creating a timeline can also be linked mathematics as it involves "sequencing events" (Mae-13MG) (Board of Studies, NSW, 2014).  

 

The finished timeline acts as a form of formative assessment, as it is a physical representation of their understanding of life events and their ability to use the technology. Students can be questioned about their work to assess their progress - In order to do this successfully students should be asked some closed questions, followed by open-ended questions, requiring some explanation (McMillan, 2011, p.118). Questions could include "What would come next on your timeline?" and "Do you think everyone would have the same timeline as you? Why?".
