Edu 352: foundations of educational technology week 2 assignment


Create History of Educational Technology Timeline


For this assignment, you will write a two-page paper in which you describe at least eight events you think are important in the history of educational technology. You will also create a visual representation of the educational technology historic events you have chosen to describe.

Creating the Timeline

Examine the “Timelines” section of the Week Two Resources document and watch the Timleine JS tutorial video
on how to create your own timeline using Timeline JS   Create a visual representation of the educational technology historic events you have chosen to describe using a mixture of dates, graphics, and textual information. Work with the images you stored on (Flickr or Shutterfly) in week one as a source of images for your timeline.


  • Go to Timeline JS, click on the Examples link in the navigation at the top of the page and view several examples that have been made using this free software.
  • When you are ready to make your own, click on the “Make a timeline now” link and follow the directions.
  • For each event you will need an approximate time frame (e.g., 1930-1940), a title (e.g., Invention of the Computer), an image (you collected these in Week One), and a brief explanation of why you chose this event.


As an alternative, you can create the timeline using Tiki-Toki . For help in getting started, access the Tiki-Toki FAQS page.

NOTE: EDU 352 students have found Tiki-Toki easier to use and more flexible than JS Timeline.
