As Vice President of the New England History Teachers Association I am excited to share some details about our Fall conference:

“Digital History: 
The Future of Exploring the Past” 
Friday October 2, 2015, 8:15am to 5:00pm 
Rhode Island Historical Society, Aldrich House, 110 Benevolent Street, Providence, RI
Dig into innovative methods, tools, and sources:
How are Big Data, the Cloud, and Google Earth changing the way we interpret the past? Is the “digital turn” producing a more vibrant, more accessible form of history?  Does it allow us – and our students – to ask new questions? To work in new ways? What does it take to integrate digital methods and tools into the history classroom?
Examine the possibilities with experts in the field
including keynote speaker Kathryn Tomasek (Wheaton College) and other pioneers in the scholarly and pedagogical aspects of data visualization, GIS, web mapping, cloud-based collaboration, social media, and digitization from schools and universities across New England.
