The Digital Research Resource, in the form of a Dominica History website, was officially launched at the Dominica State College on Tuesday 13 October 2015 to coincide with History Week.Speaking at the launching of the resource, Ms David noted that the Division of Culture decided to develop the website www.dominicahistory.org because of the great use of social media and internet by young people. “The Dominica History Road to Independence website will serve as a tremendous resource for the students. This is a clear example of the creation of web base resources to support classroom base teachings in the months and years to ahead”.Ms David noted that the Division of Culture will continue to make historical and cultural information available online for the benefit of students and the general public.“This is a ground breaking project this is history,” she stated and encouraged students to visit the site, interact with it and help “to create new information”.“The Road to Independence Project, though formally launch today, will continue in the weeks and months ahead. You students have an opportunity to engage with the project and help to build up the information database,” Ms David said.Director of Create Caribbean Inc. Dr. Schuyler Esprit, who spearheaded the project, stated that it falls in line with the One Tablet Per Child initiative currently underway.Dr Esprit said that while History Week targets the general public, it should target students specifically so they can get more in touch with Dominican history.“It’s very easy to that in a classroom and have them study and cram words, but the thing I have learned by doing this project and other ones that we do at Create Caribbean, is there’s no better way to get students enthusiastic about or interested in the history in which they are now present than to make them do history themselves”.Dr Esprit noted that the most rewarding part of the project was watching interns interact with the information themselves as they put the project together.Meanwhile, intern Zamar Thomas, who worked on the project and gave a summary of her experience, said at first the task seemed impossible. “Reading through dozens of books, scanning through hundreds of articles, newspapers and magazines, searching through what seemed like millions of websites looking for information, and not to forget reading or filtering and summarizing every document found before even thinking about building the website.”Ms Thomas stated however that the hard work has paid off and they are all extremely elated to launch the project. “I along with the Create Caribbean team can truly say we are proud of the product that we have here today and how it will grow in the next weeks and months. We hope that it will be of great use to a wide range of individuals, including but not limited, to primary and secondary school students to broaden their knowledge, on not only Dominica’s independence, but the events leading up to it,” Ms Thomas explained.– / 7 Share Sharelast_img read more
