Computer technology has impacted both the study and idea of history in a number of ways. The Internet has provided numerous web-sites for students to read, see and look into for historical information. Historians, both professional and public have also begun to utilize the computer in a variety of ways, both in academic terms as well as leisure formats. Technology has often been employed to enhance and accentuate traditional educational formats. With the coming of each new development, the technology of the day was touted as a way to supplement teaching. In this article, the author discusses how computer technology and the Internet can be employed to teach history.
