Meograph is a new online tool which makes it easy for people to
"easily create, watch, and share interactive stories ... [and] combines maps, timelines, links, and multimedia to tell a story in context of where and when".
How it could be used in the classroom:
Meograph would be a great tool for students (or educators) to retell any event. This could include major events in the news, biographies, timelines of a historical event, etc. Once created, the interactive story can easily be shared or embedded into a site or blog.
