As part of this project we put together a series of case studies to illustrate different ways in which History educators in Higher Education have used online technologies to develop their students’ knowledge and skills. We’ve developed a range of 2-3 page resources with links to further online materials that are downloadable as pdf files via the following links:
- Digital literacy and History teaching (Jamie Wood and Sue Watling): a definition of digital literacy and its relationship to the teaching of History.
- Using Wikipedia constructively in History and beyond (Jamie Wood and Sue Watling): a series of examples that focus on the critical use of Wikipedia in History teaching (and in other disciplines).
- Social bookmaking and history teaching (Jamie Wood and Muzna Rahman): on the use of tools that enable students to find, comment on and share websites (including primary and secondary sources) with one another (and their tutors) online.
- Using online databases to teach history (Jamie Wood and Muzna Rahman): on the use of databases of historical data in teaching.
- Situating learning in History teaching online (Jamie Wood and Muzna Rahman): using technologies like Google Maps to (a) teach students directly and (b) to engage students in constructing maps of their own.
