Digital Curation for Students to Experience History

Re-engage students with the past.

The Digitization of Media
The fact that all our media, historical and contemporary, is becoming digitized is good news for education. It means we, and our students, can implement that media in our studies and in our presentations all the more easily. Here, we will be discussing a specific aspect of that implementation: History, and the digital re-curation of its source materials.

Follow along with the presentation I give here.
