The Geo-Historian project is aimed at educating K-12 students to become local historians who create digital content for an audience that transcends the walls of their classrooms. Project activities include the creation of curriculum on how to do digital, local history, training teachers how to apply it in their classrooms, and implementation in local schools. Student-created digital content will be accessible in relevant historical locations in the City of Kent via QR codes that can be scanned with mobile phones.
This site provides the tools for you to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box. What items, for example, would you put in a box to describe your life; the life of a Victorian Servant or Roman soldier; or to show that slavery was wrong and unnecessary? You can display anything from a text file to a movie. You can also view and comment on the museum boxes submitted by others.
