Digital Humanities in the Classroom
Digital Humanities projects have been used as effective tools in the learning and teaching process. The use and incorporation of DH in the classroom will help your students develop new skills, and enable them to move from the role of knowledge consumers to the role of knowledge producers.
Designing classroom activities and creating digital assignments are two main areas where DH can bring a considerable change to students’ learning experience. Students can experiment with building simple DH projects such as galleries of images using Omeka or creating blogs and wikis.
Curious? Look at the project page for the Digital Egyptian Gazette, a brilliant example of a larger, long-term project that is integrated with the teaching process.
We can help you plan similar projects, just contact us. In the meantime, please see both the Kansas University and the University of Texas at Arlington Libguides to the use of DH in the classroom.
