Session Abstract

What does it mean to “Teach w/#DigHist”? In 2016, the AHA launched a blog series on Perspectives Dailyto explore how digital history can be used in the classroom to engage students and to teach them the critical thinking and interpretation skills they need to succeed in today’s digital age.

This roundtable brings together four authors and the editors of the series to explore how digital history has transformed their classrooms and teaching, and the ways that writing about that experience has made them think more deeply about their pedagogy. Ideally, this roundtable will inspire K–12 teachers and university professors to become contributors to the series and share the ways they “Teach w/#DigHist” to Perspectives readers.
