I spent almost 20 minutes browsing this site. I clicked on links that sounded
appealing to me and looked at the photo that went with that link. This site
gives educationally significant content that is helpful because you click on the
picture link that appeals to you. You then read the caption and observe the
photo. It really helps to have a small caption about the picture. It really
tells you what is going on in the photo and the meaning that it had at this time
period. This site would work very well if projected onto a giant screen.
Showing this to the students and letting them read about the significance of the
photo keeps there attention and gives them a visual to remember the period by.
This site would appeal to all ages because it is a mass collection of historical
photos put into one website that helps them learn about AmericaÂ’s past. This
site is easy to use because the links to every photo are very easy to find and
can be easily viewed.

Technical Remarks:

This website gives an updated version of how websites are being presented today.
It looks very qualified for a modern day website. The pictures are loaded
easily onto the screen and are viewed on the screen clearly. It is a very good
use of modern technology.
