On Thursday afternoon 19 Feb 2015 at 3.30pm we held a SchoolNet free webinar entitled ‘Get to know Microsoft’s Chronomzoom’. This was presented by a South African educator, Linda Foulkes, who is also a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert #MIEExpert15. Linda will soon be representing South Africa at the Microsoft Global Forum in Redmond Washington.
The webinar description
Linda said: ChronoZoom is a free, open source, cross-platform, openly-authored timeline of the history of Everything. This webinar will take you on a ChronoZoom journey. All you need is a browser, iPad, Smartphone, or your Windows App store. It is designed to enable educators and students to explore time and tell stories about change over time. Used as a reference tool for history students and teachers, it will capture student's attention and launch him or her into a series of quests for more information about a variety of topics.
