Day 3 - Historic Moments Collection

The final archive of the Google Cultural Institute is the Historic Moments collection. This amazing collection allows you to explore online exhibitions detailing the stories behind significant moments in human history. Each exhibit tells a story using documents, photos, videos and in some cases personal accounts of events.

You'll find a wealth of information about the First World War, Stories of the Holocaust, Fall of the Iron Curtain, and much more. One of the more fascinating sections of the Historic Moments collection is the LIFE photo collection with over 5,500,000 photographs taken throughout history.

The search capabilities within the site are wonderful, and you should be able to find quality information and media for almost any historical topic.

About Me

This is my first year as the Technology Integration Specialist at Southwest Christian School, Elementary Campus. My goal is to spread the word about all the amazing technology available for our teachers to use in the classroom. God called us to be educators. I believe we should do our best to make learning fun and relevant for our students. Education incorporating the use of technology is just one of the ways we can engage and challenge our students as they become 21st century learners.
