Educator Workshop: Remembering WWI App

National Archives at Kansas City
Kansas City, MO

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 - 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. CST

The National Archives and the National World War I Museum and Memorial are holding a free workshop for teachers and educators to explore practical scenarios for using the National Archive’s new national World War I app in the classroom. It will be held at the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, located at 2 Memorial Drive, Kansas City, MO.

The Museum is helping to partner on this new app, titled Remembering WWI, which invites teachers and museums nationwide to contribute their own stories and play a part in the centennial commemoration of the World War I. In this how-to session, HistoryPin will introduce the ways the app has been designed to help people explore, use, and reuse newly digitized WWI photographs and moving images. Pastries, coffee, and a light lunch will be provided.

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. Registration is required, register here.
