Education, Civil War, and Vintage Modern Ads

Today starts off with a new online educational community called Tioki. This site is a platform for educators to communicate as well as share resources and ideas. The site allows teachers and other education professionals to create, join, and learn from groups of people who have similar backgrounds, experience, and areas of expertise. Best of all, the site is free to join.

Next is Mike Lynuagh's Virtual Civil War website. This site is dedicated to remembering the nation's most devastating period with pages full of photographs of battlefields and monuments as well these vintage Civil War pictures from the time period. History teachers and Civil War buffs should bookmark this site right away.

Last is this very cool collection of modern products and websites being advertised in vintage looking style. The ads feature such big time names such as Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, and Skype to name four and you really do have to see the ads to appreciate the quality of the work. (see the Twitter example below.)
