Digital History

Welcome to Digital History. It is an educational site that is designed specifically for history teachers and their students.

This site offers up a plethora of information and it also has a lot of navigation options to choose from. You can use the side menu, you can use the pictures in the middle of the site, and you can even scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find even more options to surf this site.

So, to be different, I’ll start with the bottom of the page. Here you will find two very useful links;. Ask the Hyperhistorian and Search & Site Map.

The Hyperhistorian gives you the opportunity to ask a question and have it answered as well as browse through other questions that have been asked of the Hyperhistorian previously.

The Search and Site Map allows you to search the site for specific information. The Site Map gives you another way to browse the site categories. I found the Site Map to be an easier way to browse when I knew what I was looking for.

The navigation in the middle of the page seemed like highlights to me. Some of the best subjects served up right where you could see them immediately.

The side menu contains the links to many sections.

Online Textbook – is a great interactive, multimedia history of the United States of America.

Primary Sources – this where you can find source material for where the information is coming from I believe. It supplies book information, links to documents, court cases, and much, much more.

Ethnic Voice – I loved this section. Here you can learn about all the different ethnicities who have immigrated to America in our past. I really loved reading about the Irish and Italian immigrants and their outlooks on life, because it isn’t something that we were really taught in my high school.

For Teachers – is a great section for teachers who want to use this site in their classrooms. Here you can find interactive modules, handouts and worksheets, resource guides, and a whole heck of a lot more.

Now we come to the multimedia sections – Active Learning, Multimedia, Interactive Timeline, Virtual History, and Virtual Exhibitions. This is obviously the REALLY cool stuff to check out. It’s what we all came to experience here. So check it out and see history in a new light.

Special Topics – this section explores controversial topics, film and history, and a heck of a lot more. It is definitely worth checking out.

History Reference Room – if you’re a student this section is really priceless. This is where you can hone your research, find references for information, not to mention images, maps, and websites.

This is a refreshing look at teaching and learning history. I hope you’ll all take your time exploring this one.
