Recently while playing on my phone I found a FREE app called Historypin. After finding the app and playing around with it a bit I was able to find the program online as well, Historypin.com. The program is a fun and amazing way to get students excited about history. The program allows students to see photos in their area and overseas from the past. I was able to find a photo of the Kmart, Burwood, near Deakin from 1969. The app also allows you to take photos and post them on the website recording your own bit of history.
I think this would be a great way to encourage kids of many ages to become engaged and excited about history.
Everyone should definitely check it out!
