Historical Facts of the Day

At the MassCue conference a few weeks ago I learned from one of the attendees about a web site that focuses on an historical fact of the day about Massachusetts.  The site is called Mass Moments and it is sponsored by the Mass Humanities (formerly called the Mass Foundation for the Humanities).  The site provides the fact of the day in text and also in voice format, so a teacher could play it for her/his students or read it aloud.  There is also a tool bar with the names of the day to get the facts of the other days of the week.  And there are also links for searching all facts for all the days and ways to subscribe to the fact. The text of the fact can also be sent individually to an email address or to a text-message address.  This is a very handy source of information about Massachusetts that has lots of pedagogical applications as well a means to enhance your own learning.  Check it out!
