Democratizing Student Learning: The "Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1820-1940" Web Project at SUNY Binghamton
Dublin, Thomas; Sklar, Kathryn Kish
History Teacher, v35 n2 p163-174 Feb 2002
Worldwide web technology is a perfect match for teaching about history. The technology boosts teachers capacities because it gives its students access to the documents that reveal the processes of historical change, and it helps students develop better analytic skills by learning to interpret documents. This amazing conjuncture of new technology and the possibilities of the history classroom has generated enormous potential for improvement in the way one teaches history. But much remains to be done. Teachers need to develop new course content and new teaching formats that use the new technology. In this article, the author describes a web project at State University of New York, Binghamton. The project collaborates with students to produce online resources in U.S. women's history. (Contains 3 figures and 6 notes.)
