Today in #GlobalMiddleAges course @washcoll going to introduce them to the StoryMaps platform, using these examples: bit.ly/2U6zVQi and bit.ly/2ATGrTm . Follow along using #GlobalMiddleAgesWAC as we use ArcGIS software to research & interpret the past!
bit.ly/2S4hGxo . Here's the Dropbox link to our course syllabus for #GlobalMiddleAgesWAC and you'll notice that part of the point of the course is to question what "Middle Ages" or "Global" means.
I am most definitely NOT an expert on #GlobalMiddleAges, but I want to acknowledge that fact and encourage students to step outside their own comfort zones. I've prepped SO MUCH for this class, but I'm not building on as much prior knowledge as I usually have!
So hopefully the experiment that is #GlobalMiddleAgesWAC will work for student learning, and I'm prepared to be frequently humbled by all the learning I have yet to do!
@meganlcook for the record, you are getting a shoutout both in class and in the conference talk I'm giving on this class in a few weeks for being a key inspiration. I'm so grateful for your help!
