Interactive maps can offer a compelling platform for digital storytelling. In this workshop, participants will work on a model project that integrates historical contexts with basic GIS. Minimal technical know-how is required - just internet access and an idea. We’ll brainstorm about how this project can be adapted for pedagogy, training, and outreach in various contexts. The end result is a fun project that offers scholars and students a chance to explore hands-on digital scholarship. Participants will learn:

  • How to build an interactive map using StoryMap JS
  • Principles of minimal computing for digital projects
  • Strategies for using interactive maps for outreach and pedagogy

Developing better research skills is just a tweet away. Learn to find sources, manage information, and share your research with the world: https://twitter.com/IllinoisLibrary
