Educational Websites Lingo Likes: HistoryPin

When our mascot owl isn’t helping children learn to read, Lingo likes to curate facts and information about world history.  That’s why historypin is one of the educational websites about world history that Lingo likes! Here’s more about them from their website:

“Historypin is a way for millions of people to come together, from across different generations, cultures and places, to share small glimpses of the past and to build up the huge story of human history.

Everyone has history to share: whether its sitting in yellowed albums in the attic, collected in piles of crackly tapes, conserved in the 1000s of archives all over the world or passed down in memories and old stories.

Each of these pieces of history finds a home on Historypin, where everyone has the chance to see it, add to it, learn from it, debate it and use it to build up a more complete understanding of the world.”

One historical trend that we’re working to change is the incredibly low rates of reading success.  Sign up for a free 30 day trial of Reading Kingdom and see why our program is known as “the new way to learn to read online”.  Lingo and company will see you soon!
