An essay of mine on the ways that students are beginning to play with history using digital media, “But Mine’s Better”: Teaching History in a Remix Culture has just appeared in the May 2011 issue of The History Teacher (44/3: 369-378), and is the featured article on the journal’s website page for the new edition. You can download a copy of the pdf from their site. The essay is a meditation on what happens when students begin to play around with the past in ways we don’t expect and what that playing around means for the future of history education. If you have a chance to read the article, I’ll be interested to hear what you think. Comments are especially welcome, because I’m in the final throes of revisions to a book manuscript tentatively titled Teaching History in the Digital Age and so I’d love to hear what readers think before I submit the final version to the press. In the article you’ll get a good sense for some of the main lines of argument in the book.
