History classes have created a new approach to studying major historical events. Amsterdam-based school, 4e Gymnasium, has taken advantage of the popularity of Facebook and the user-friendly Timeline feature to inspire a curriculum. The page allows students to create posts,  link various media, and create dialogue with fellow classmates.

The class is focusing on four subjects: Magellan’s voyages, 20th century inventions, Fashion history from 1950-present, and the rise and fall of the Soviet Union. By not only focusing on the content, but the chronology of events, students are able to experience a larger understanding of cultural and social themes, trends, and milestone achievements.

The class has sent a public invitation for others to add to the timelines by visiting their pages on Facebook. Titles of the pages — as well as more information about the project —  can be found in the video clip below.
