Hello all,

The American Historical Association recently launched "Teaching with #Dhist," a new review series targeted at history instructors from primary to graduate school focused on how to use digital history projects in the classroom. Each review provides an overview of the project, ideas on how to use it in the classroom and sample assigments. The first entry examines ORBIS: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World and discusses the ways it can be used to study late antiquity. As the editor of the series, I hope that Teaching with #Dhist will provides more opportunities for history instructors of all levels to further engage with the growing number of digital history projects. Any comments, questions or suggestions for further reviews welcome via email john.rosinbum@gmail.com or Twitter @johnrosinbum.

Best,

John
