La Florida: The Interactive Digital Archive of the Americas

I wanted to bring everyone's attention to La Florida: The Interactive Digital Archive of the Americas.

This is an interactive site featuring biographies of people from Colonial Florida. This looks like it would be great for the classroom, I know the developers continue to revise and improve it while adding more resources. There are a variety of ways to explore different topics with great visualizations. 

Early Visions of Florida

Greetings all, I wanted to use these discussion posts to send out links to different media and digital projects on Florida history.

This one is on Early Visions of Florida. This is a great site with primary sources that could be used in the classroom, some are translated others are from the British period all in one place. It was sponsored by the Florirda Humanities Council and the director and editor is Thomas Hallock.

History in the Archives

Greetings All!

As you know I am working on creating a pool of digital resources for our network that would be valuable to teaching about Florida history. I was wondering if any of you had already created assignments for teaching from the archives that you would be willing to share? If you do, would you please email it to me so I can add it to our collection? I will be certain to give proper credit for your hard work.

You can send it to me at clarkbremer@att.net. Thanks!

Sincerely,

Jeanine
