My goal for this project was to create a get to know you tool that would allow students to share information about themselves while also being creative and customizing their presentation. Specifically, I wanted students to be able to create a timeline of their life and be able to include their own pictures, pictures from the internet, videos, gifs, or any website. This presentation was created with my 7th grade class in mind, however, this project could be used with any group of people older than 4th grade and into adulthood.
I used Padlet to create this timeline because of how much a user can customize their timeline. Students can add a custom background image, upload their own personal images or choose images from google, and link to any website or video on youtube. I loved how easy this program was to use, which will allow students to easily create their timelines. I also loved how users were able to link to a website, which allowed me to link to my classroom website. I also loved how I was able to add gifs to the timeline, which was a fun addition that I have never seen on a timeline before.
