TRANSCRIPT

DIPITY is a great way to engage student participation in learning about complex events. DIPITY is a digital timeline program in which groups of individuals can construct a timeline together. Members of the group can post events to the timeline and then add graphics, text or even audio. All the students can view and comment on the timeline as it is being developed. I use DIPITY in my history classes but it can be used for any subject to learn about sequential events. For example, the steps to a medical procedure or a lab experiment. Another great aspect of the program is that the finished product can be viewed all at once as a timeline or sequentially as a flipbook. I have found that students really enjoy the chance to get involved in creating a lecture themselves with DIPITY.
