Universal Education Search http://learn.creativecommons.org/projects/oesearch

Time Lines www.shambles.net/pages/school/timelines
I think that building time lines is a brilliant learning
strategy ... this probably comes back to my own visual learning
style. We are now spoilt with the number of online web 2.0 tools

a website that allows students to create and explore multimedia
"You can see a review of xtimeline for the “Safe Web
2.0 for the Classroom” list at www.teachersfirst.com/content/edge.cfm.
It’s also got great ideas for timeline projects for students"
