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
