Timeline Eons

Timeline Eons FREE - maani.us



A graphical representation of the entire natural and human history. Use this app to build chart the timeline of your projects, whether it's history, geography, economics, art history etc.
There is a free version and paid version. The link above is to the free version.
The timelines are well populated (if not a little American Centric) with information, however the real beauty of this is that it is editable so students can build their own timelines, based on whatever topic you are teaching.

WorldTouch is an interactive data visualization tool, ideal for economics, geography teachers and students, or anyone interested in environmental or social data. 


This app gives you access to the World Bank Open Data Catalog, where you can browse hundreds of stats and preloaded queries as well as drilling down to compare countries by setting your own parameters. 

Don't forget to use your screen grab (Home button and Sleep Button pressed simultaneously) you can capture information and graphs from this app and then use them in any presentation app like Keynote or Explain Everything, or any app that can access your camera roll.
