Pros

  • Since PowerPoint allows user to easily place and move around objects and text boxes, it makes an excellent tool for this project
  • This is just the basics of PowerPoint and could easily be used as a foundational lesson and built upon throughout the year or project
Cons

  • Since the narrator has a soft voice, some students might not fully engage with the material
  • The video is very specific in talking about the year 2014 as the final year of the timeline; however, it would be simple to just tell individuals to change the year
