This week our Education colleagues at the National Archives announced the DocsTeach App for iPad, extending the dynamic learning opportunities available from the DocsTeach.org website to iPad users. (This marks the second mobile app from the National Archives, joining our Today’s Document app.)
Using the app, you can choose a topic, such as “Civics & Government” or “Postwar U.S. 1945 – early 1970s,” and challenge yourself with a DocsTeach activity to interact with stories, events, and ideas of the past. All activities are based on primary source documents from the holdings of the National Archives, such as the U.S. Constitution, the canceled check for the purchase of Alaska, and Thomas Edison’s patent drawing for the light bulb. The activities were created by the National Archives education team and an army of DocsTeach users.
