2/13 - Of Interest To Students and Parents: Surfing my IPAD for new Apps while being snowed-in today, I came across a new FREE App by Ken Burns, the PBS history movie producer. The App consolidates all of his great American History-related movies into short theme-based 2 minute thru 5 minute long video clips providing a concise summary of the historical theme. These clips cover all of American History from the Age of Discovery thru beginning of the 21st Century. Many of the themes relating to after the Civil War we have already covered in class and many more we will cover in the weeks ahead. To me the clips can serve as a quick review and summary of the subject matter's theme. Check the FREE App out if you can.
Of course, with most FREE Apps there is always an upgraded version which requires you to purchase. The Ken Burns App upgraded version cost is listed as $9.99. From my review the upgraded version just has additional clips for viewing. I intend to make this purchase soon and will let you know whether it is worth the price.
