The Free Tech 4 Teachers blog is on a roll this week. This is going to be the third excellent site I’ve learned from Richard Byrne that I’ve posted about this week…
Today, it’s the new LIFE site sharing millions of photos from the LIFE Magazine archives and Getty Images.
What’s great about this new site is that, unlike Google’s previous hosting of many of the same photos (which are just listed by decades), LIFE’s site shows them in thematic slideshows with accessible captions. Plus, they include daily updates of slideshows about current events. You can also subscribe to a weekly email newsletter that gives you updates on new content.
Both the historical and current slideshows are fabulous. I’m adding the site to The Best Online Slideshows About Current Events, The Best news/current events websites for English Language Learners , and probably to a bunch of other “The Best..” lists, too.
