Remembering WWI: Exploring NARA's Digital Archive with Historypin

Join UCBHSSP and Historypin to explore -- and help amass -- digitized resources available through the National Archives



For the 100-year anniversary of the United States entering WWI, the US National Archives teamed with Historypin to launch “Remembering WWI”, an iPad and Android application that invites audiences to explore, collaborate, and engage with the Archives’ extensive collection of World War I moving and still images. 
Using the archival content within the app, it allows users to create, build, and share their own collections and narratives around the people, events, and themes of this important era.
H-SS Framework-aligned source sets could be created around these themes (and many more):
  • Women's suffrage 
  • Conscientious objectors and pacifist activity during WWI 
  • Veterans' rights (Bonus Army Riots)
  • Labor organizing and protests on the homefront
  • Civilian surveillance, internment, and property confiscation of those the government deemed were "alien enemies"
  • Refugees of war in France, Belgium, and the Middle East
  • Native American and African American participation in WWI
Participants will:
  1. Assemble source sets using the Historypin-designed app
  2. Draft instructional supports based on UCBHSSP's H-SS Framework-aligned learning strategies
  3. Need a laptop, and if possible, a tablet.
This project is made possible in part by an anonymous donor and the National Archives Foundation.
