App Review: Ken Burns

The KEN BURNS app will bring history alive for your students through video scenes and historical photos. 

Rather than revisiting his documentaries, this app is a new way to explore American history content. The short, focused content segments will be popular with both students and teachers.

The TIMELINE view allows users to zoom in to explore the chronology of history through short video scenes.

The THEME view provides a playlist of scenes related to art, hard times, innovation, politics, race, war, and leadership.

The FILM view involves users in exploring scenes from favorite Ken Burns films.

Some of this content is also available at the KEN BURNS AMERICA website at

The full version of this app is $9.99 and it’s also available as part of the Apple Volume Purchase Program discount.
