Remembering WWI App Workshop

Join the National Archives and Historypin for a free educator workshop on Wednesday, June 21st to learn about our new World War I app: Remembering WWI.

Remembering WWI App Welcome screen

Remembering WWI is an iPad and Android app for exploring, collaborating, and engaging with our extensive collection of WWI photographs and moving images. It commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War, and is available in the iTunes and Google Play stores.

In this how-to session, we’ll introduce the ways the app has been designed to help teachers and students explore, use, and reuse newly digitized WWI photographs and moving images.

Workshop Date & Time:
Wed, June 21, 2017
10:00 AM – 11:30 AM EDT

The Innovation Hub at the National Archives
700 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20408

This workshop is free. Register on Eventbrite.

National Archives staff, along with our partners at Historypin, will highlight the primary source content featured in the app. And you’ll get a chance to explore the app and brainstorm with fellow teachers and curators about ways to use this app in your classroom or cultural heritage institution.

We hope you can join us for a fun workshop (pastries and coffee will be provided) to learn about the ways you might use some of our nation’s most interesting WWI content in your curriculum.

Please bring an iPad (minimum requirements iOS 9) or Android tablet (minimum requirements Android 5, minimum width 4.3 inches) if you own one, and have the Remembering WWI app downloaded if you can. We’ll have a few tablets available for use.

Register on Eventbrite.
