Special Problems in Social Studies Education: Digital History and Social Studies

This course was an experiential exploration of using a wiki to analyze and present historical primary sources. Specifically the class explored and analyzed telegrams sent by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War; wiki technology was used to explore Lincoln's use of the budding telegraph technology that revolutionized wartime communication. The home page of the wiki is located at this link and links for the specific telegrams for which I was responsible are listed below.
