Experiment with History Pin. It’s free!
It’s an application where people can put old photographs on a location which are then available for others to see. Creates a historical, visual record of say a street. If there are no pictures of your location, get the kids to go and take some and load them onto History pin.
- Or go to the local museum and ask if you can take photographs of their photographs or whether you can scan them. Or ask them to bring in any old photos of the area their family might have. Scan them and load onto History Pin.
- ‘Walk around’ bits of their town they don’t know using Google Maps ‘street view’.
- invite some older people in and interview them about your town, then upload as a podcast or a video on you tube
