How Textbooks Can Teach Different Versions Of History

Laura Isensee, NPR Ed, Jul 15, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

One of the things I like about the use of internet resources in education is that we are no longer constrained to a single view of the world as we were in the textbook age (this presumes, of course, that schools use the internet to teach, and not just digitized versions of their old sources in a closed environment). This has an impact in every field, but is probably most significantly in fields where controversies exist, such as history. The subject of this article is the U.S. Civil War, but it could be anything, really.
