Back in the Saddle Again

NYSHA Library

Today marked my first day as an intern and employee of the New York State Historical Association – otherwise known as NYSHA. As a research assistant in the education department, I will be looking into the possibility of creating an iPad textbook about New York state history for 4th and 8th graders! As more classrooms embrace new technologies, museums are looking for ways to enhance learning and expand their audience base. Could iPad textbooks and increased partnerships with museums be part of the future of our education system? Stay tuned this semester as I grapple with issues of feasibility, curriculum standards, and funding!
