Abstract

Web-based digital archives are rapidly multiplying in both number and content on the web. These rich collections of text, images, sound files, and video clips centered on a common topic or theme provide a rich resource to support student-centered learning in K-12 classrooms. The fact that many of these archives are housed by universities and government agencies helps to ensure that the materials included in the archive are both appropriate and reliable sources of information. These archives, freely available in any classroom with an Internet connection, provide a rich source of materials for students to engage in authentic inquiry activities and digital storytelling. Several digital archives are explored in this paper, along with classroom applications.
