Inquiry Learning and Research in the Digital Age History Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Technology has the potential to change our relationship to history and can facilitate engaging activities and research that would be difficult or impossible to create in a tech-free environment. Primary sources -- the heart of historical analysis -- are increasingly available on the Web accompanied by new and innovative ways of interacting with these online materials. As such, historians, educators and students must improve their skills of accessing, evaluating, creating and collaborating with digital primary sources. This session develops skills for accessing and teaching with digital primary sources and provides exemplary activities. Participants will learn tools and techniques for uncovering primary sources and will explore cutting-edge interactive collections with fascinating potential.
