Take Me Back To

Take Me Back To | technologies |

Discover how the world looked like on a specific date in the past (1900 - 2010).

- What News was making the headlines?

- What were the top Hits and the most popular Movies?

- What were the fashion styles and

-What advertisements would you have seen?


All users have to do is type in a date and click on 'Go' and it will generate their results.


This is potentially a great tool to...

- generate materials for language work in the classroom

- use with History, media, fashion, design, music and many other learners.


See if learners can...

- guess the year / date

- research a date and make past tense sentences about the content.
- find out what was happening on the day they were born.
- compare results from different decades.


I found Take Me Back To be a really interesting site.

World of Kays | Look at the collection | technologies |

A fascinating look at fashion through the ages.
World of Kays provides images from 80 years of their catalogue; 1920s to 1990s.
This project, from the University of Worcester, focuses on the changing attitudes to fashion.
The search tool allows users to compare pyjamas, for example, from different decades.
