Timeline Maker 3, Beautiful Timelines Through a Google Form

That I would update the Timeline Maker system for the newest version of Timeline JS. I wanted this version to be as accessible as possible so I built in a control panel to guide teachers through the setup process. This system uses a Google Form to create a beautiful interactive and embeddable timeline. Timeline JS is a beautiful tool that transforms a Google Sheet into an interactive multimedia timeline.

Animated interactive of the history of the Atlantic slave trade.

Interactive by Andrew Kahn. Background image by Tim Jones. Usually, when we say “American slavery” or the “American slave trade,” we mean the American colonies or, later, the United States. But as we discussed in Episode 2 of Slate’s History of American Slavery Academy, relative to the entire slave trade, North America was a bit player. This interactive, designed and built by Slate’s Andrew Kahn, gives you a sense of the scale of the trans-Atlantic slave trade across time, as well as the flow of transport and eventual destinations.

Zone Rouge: An Area of France So Badly Damaged By WW1 That People Are Still Forbidden To Live There

While WW1 ended nearly a century ago, its scars can still be found across Northern France and Belgium. Zone Rouge (French for Red Zone) is perhaps the ultimate example of this. At the end of the war in 1918, the French government isolated the areas in red above and forbade activities such as forestry, farming and even the building of houses from being performed inside them. In total the non-contiguous areas took up 1,200 sq km (460 sq mi) (roughly the size of New York City).

The primary reason the areas were declared no-go zones was that they had seen some of the worst fighting during the war, particularly during the Battle of Verdun in 1916. Google edu moonshot Summit. Google’s Tone Chrome Extension Lets You Share URLs By Sound. Google launched an experimental Chrome extension today that lets you share the URL from your current browser tab with anybody within earshot.

Google’s Tone Chrome Extension Lets You Share URLs By Sound

Tone, which is now available in the Chrome Web Store, uses sound to transmit the information and uses the speakers and microphones now typically available on any laptop. Because it’s audio-based, it has some interesting limitations: the information doesn’t carry very far, for example, and any wall will block it. As the Google Research team behind the extension notes in today’s announcement, the first version was very efficient, but it sounded horrible. The team then moved to a codec that would play the sound beyond the limits of human hearing, but laptop microphones tend to be optimized for voice, so that didn’t really work all that well. The version that launched today now uses a “dual-tone multi-frequency signaling” system, similar to what telephone systems use.

Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature. Listen to audio-recorded readings of former Consultants in Poetry Elizabeth Bishop, Gwendolyn Brooks and Robert Frost; Nobel Laureates Mario Vargas Llosa and Czeslaw Milosz, and renowned writers such as Ray Bradbury, Margaret Atwood, and Kurt Vonnegut read from their work at the Library of Congress.

Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature

The Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature at the Library of Congress dates back to 1943, when Allen Tate was Consultant in Poetry. It contains nearly two thousand recordings—of poets and prose writers participating in literary events at the Library’s Capitol Hill campus as well as sessions at the Library’s Recording Laboratory. Most of these recordings are captured on magnetic tape reels, and only accessible at the Library itself. In digitizing the archive and presenting it online, the Library hopes to greatly broaden its use and value. Bibblio – Learning set free. Klassrumsstrategier. Det finns exempel på klassrumsstrategier som andra gjort tidigare, men jag tycker att det behövs en motsvarande med lite mer färg.


Därför har jag gjort två olika layouter varav den ena i några olika färgkombinationer. Om du gillar dem får du använda dem fritt och sprida dem till kollegor.

Vad betyder värdeorden?

Värdeorden är de fetstilade orden i läroplanen som uttrycker på vilken nivå ett kunskapskrav nåtts, t ex enkelt, utvecklat, välutvecklat och det är där bedömningen utgår ifrån. För att hjälpa till att bedöma värdeorden används det som kallas bedömningsaspekter (här finns mer information från Pedagog Värmland om ämnet) men De kallas även för språkliga uttrycksformer i Skolverkets skrift Få syn på språket.
