From Gettysburg to the Cuban Missile Crisis: Designing for historical reenactments with Twitter
Proceedings of the International Conference of the Learning Sciences
TwHistory is a project designed to organize and promote a variety of historical reenactments using Twitter as a tool for computer mediated communication of historical events. Thus far, volunteers and educators have organized reenactments of the Battle of Gettysburg and the Cuban Missile Crisis while other efforts are underway. This poster will share an iteration of design and development for historical reenactments using Twitter and examine the initial feedback within the paradigm of design-based research.
