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, along with contributions from other organizations and individuals. 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, participants will have the opportunity to explore the app and brainstorm with fellow educators how to use it in the classroom.

App developer Historypin will introduce how the app was created to help people explore, use, and reuse newly digitized WWI photographs and moving images. Stacie Petersen from the National World War I Museum and Memorial will highlight the Museum’s primary source contributions to the project.
