Cleveland Historical App Now Available for Download

November 26, 2010

 

 

This is an interesting new app that was developed by The Center for Public History and Digital Humanities.  Hopefully, this is the beginning of something that could go nation-wide. The uses for this app and others like it could be quite interesting in classroom or community projects.

    Hi Christina, many thanks for the post! We will be working directly with teachers and students this spring to begin exploring uses and best practices for this and other mobile apps (as a component of a Teaching American History grant project). We would love to hear any ideas, feedback, uses, etc.

    By the way, your work with American Indian communities sounds fascinating. As you may know, Cleveland has an interesting native history, being one of 8 cities to where native communities were “relocated” in the mid-20th century and also an important early touchstone for AIM. We hope to incorporate some of this information into the app sometime soon and know first hand how sensitive such representations can be. Your thoughts on coordinating and publishing oral history interviews would also be welcome.

    Anyway, just found your blog (via trackback) and it looks like a great resource to share with our teacher groups!

    Thanks so much for your comments Erin. I look forward to seeing AIM and other American Indian information included in your project!
