Feeling a Little Dipity?

A few blogs back, I shared with you how much I liked the Capzle site. There is so much you can do with Capzle's that the list is long.  Well, today I came across Dipity!  This is a cool digital timeline site that helps you organize content from the web.  So while your students are doing research, they can use this create and share material. The timelines are engaging and you can integrate video, audio, images, and links. Cool, right?  As always, one of my criteria is that it's free and Dipity is! Check out Dipity and let me know how you use it in your class! Heidi
