Integrating Primary Sources in the Middle and High School Curriculum through Digital Learning

Together we will locate materials relevant to your own North Carolina hometowns or counties and share ways to improve your students’ digital literacy and make these sources more meaningful to them.

OCRACOKE—Primary sources, such as photographs, manuscripts, maps, and government documents, are now digitized. Educators can easily access and use them to enhance digital learning for their students. The North Carolina Center for the Advancement Teaching, a recognized national leader in professional development programming for North Carolina teachers, will be presenting “Integrating Primary Sources in the Middle and High School Curriculum Through Digital Learning” at Ocracoke October 11–14.

Join us at NCCAT as we partner with university libraries and online programs that provide relevant and engaging teaching resources in user-friendly online forms. We also will discover other online sources and explore means of using them that promote critical thinking and analysis skills and engage middle and high school students in technology, language arts, science, social studies, and other subjects. Together we will locate materials relevant to your own North Carolina hometowns or counties and share ways to improve your students’ digital literacy and make these sources more meaningful to them.
