Smithsonian History Explorer

From the "About" Page: 

"Smithsonian's History Explorer was developed by the National Museum of American History in partnership with the Verizon Foundation to offer hundreds of free, innovative online resources for teaching and learning American history.

The site is designed for use by K-12 teachers and students, afterschool program providers, families, and individuals interested in lifelong learning.

History Explorer's resources focus on learning history by "reading" objects for the stories they hold about the nation and its many peoples. Learning activities feature artifacts selected from over 3 million items in the Museum's collections, and draw on the expertise of the Museum's renowned curatorial staff."

Trip Line -Make Interactive Map

Thanks very much for visiting. We've worked very hard to create something unique with Tripline, and I hope you enjoy what we've built so far. The product is still in Beta and we release new features regularly, so if there's something you'd like to see, please contact us. I'm pretty busy, so I'll respond as quickly as I can.

Your Plans Become Your Stories

One of the earliest concept slides I put together had a simple statement: "Planning is a creative process." And like any creative process, planning travel begins with an idea, moves on to a sketch and details are refined over time. You're never really done, and it's never perfect. So I wanted to build Tripline as a way for you to create your initial sketch, and make the product flexible enough to let you turn a fun sketch into a refined plan. And, the cool thing is that if you use Tripline that way, you already have the framework of a story to tell. Just add photos, a bit of text and share with your friends.
