I’ll be presenting at WIDE EMU with Derek Mueller and Jana Rosinski in a couple of weeks, and we’ll be looking at TimelineJS, an elegant timeline tool that can be constructed through a simple Google Docs spreadsheet (or, for the more code-literate, users can build via a programming language). We’re interested in how examining and reflecting on learning over an extended period of time (attending to chronos as much as we might tend to those sparkly kairotic moments) might be of value in classroom planning and as we think about ourselves as learners and teachers both within a semester-length time frame and beyond.
I plan to incorporate TimelineJS in my own teaching by offering it as a tool for students to attend to Eastern Michigan’s First-Year Writing Program Learning and Composing Process Outcomes. As for the Bee Gees … well, as you’ll see if you click through the image, there’s an example of the kind of stuff you can do with TimelineJS. Also, Barry Gibb.
