How I Use It
I would definitely use this app if I were a history or social studies teacher. It provides historical videos from different time periods of US history and speeches from several US Presidents. There are not a lot of video choices. I have taught a unit on the JFK assassination and some of the videos on this app were a great supplement to my lessons.
My Take
I provides a great visualization to certain historical time periods that are hard to catch a child's interest. It incorporates technology in the classroom and brings history alive for students to see and hear. The app could add more video resources to make it more improved.
