Why is Dipity useful ?
Dipity is excellent for encouraging students to edit, evaluate, collaborate and generate projects that can personalize history. So it is the perfect tool for creating a timeline for any subject in your classroom. Students can bring history to life by embedding relevant You Tube video into their timelines.
What about the educators ?
For educators, the benefit of timeline builders is the ability to work with students on developing their decision-making skills. Students constructing timelines have to decide which events to add and which to omit, what text should be displayed, which images to embed, and most importantly why the particular starting and endpoints were chosen on historical merit. In many ways, tools like Dipity provide teachers with an insight into student decision-making processes and open up dialogue about what historical work entails.
Ideas for the classroom:
Dipity makes your classroom interactive and engaging for students. This is where real learning takes place !

We can use Dipity in the education, because it is accessible to all students( if they have got web access)
I think it is easier to use human subjects (for example history and literature), because these subjects there are more year.-> this is Dipity’s important element and work with years./Edina P./
