The History Teacher
Teaching and Learning in an Era of "Instant Historying"

Instant messaging, made possible by technological advancements and the Internet in particular, allows an author to deliver information to an audience immediately. The increasing popularity of websites like Wikipedia and Twitter further allows individuals -- often acting anonymously and in real-time -- the incredible ability to create and edit the electronic sources society looks to for information. With encyclopedic entries updated within minutes if not seconds after news of an event breaks, historians and educators must navigate an ocean of opportunities and obstacles in this Era of "Instant Historying."

The Society for History Education is pleased to spotlight recent scholarship in The History Teacher on the specific use of Wikipedia and Twitter in the history classroom.
