Bringing Inclusive Digital Materials into the Classroom

Friday, July 21, 2023

12 - 1:30 PM EST

Creating digital collections can sometimes feel like you’re building a field of dreams that you hope will be used. Getting your resources into classrooms can be especially challenging. Consider The Source is an online community that connects educators across New York State to the valuable primary sources and materials found in museums and other repositories. This session will describe the challenges and successes of Consider the Source’s recent IMLS-funded expansion and focus on underrepresented communities. Participating educators will offer feedback from using local history primary sources in their curriculum.
