DOE - NYC Immigration app for iPad

The New Immigrants: NYC 1880-1924


Our challenge was to combine the story of turn of the century NYC immigration with a teaching platform to be used in classrooms. We created personas and tested users to create a robust architecture for all.


We needed to create a balance between storytelling and instructional activity through over 100 artifacts including photos, documents, newspaper articles, political cartoons and videos.
