NewsEyen blogia kirjoittavat tiimimme jäsenet. Blogissa tuodaan terveisiä konferensseista, pohdiskellaan ajankohtaisia asioita, kerrotaan projektin sisäisiä uutisia sekä esitellään tiivistä tietoa tapaustutkimuksistamme tai projektiin liittyvistä julkaisuista. Blogikirjoitukset ovat pääosin englanninkielisiä, mutta voivat silloin tällöin sisältää muutakin kirjoittajan suosimaa kieltä – olemmehan monikielinen joukko! Mukavia lukuhetkiä!


Back to School with NewsEye Educational Materials

Last year, Stefan Hechl and Benedikt Kapferer (University of Innsbruck) gave a first look at the NewsEye educational material on the NewsEye blog. The project's Digital Humanities team from Austria, Finland and France has since finalised and published several resources for secondary school and university educators who wish to use digitised historical newspapers. As the summer holidays are coming to an end, this article aims to present the educational material available to use this academic year and beyond.

Educational Material for Secondary Schools

Created by researchers from the University of Innsbruck, the University of Helsinki and the University Paul-Valéry-Montpellier, these resources are available in English, German and French. Educators can freely download booklets that gather all the material for each language, as well as lesson plans and worksheets to be used in the classroom.

The lesson plans focus on the themes of Newspapers and Nationalism (English and German), Migration in the 19th and 20th Century (English and German) and Women and the Press in the 19th and 20th Centuries (English and French).

Educational Material for Universities

Various resources have also been made available for university educators, including syllabi for two courses: Introduction to Digital Practice in the Historical Sciences and Digitized Newspapers in Humanities Research.

Videos (like the one below), podcast episodes, a GitHub page for Jupyter Notebooks and various articles from the NewsEye blog can be used to enrich students' understanding of Digital Humanities.

Learning Material and Guides

Many of the aforementioned resources can also be useful for anyone curious about subjects related to the NewsEye project, like the project's Digital Humanities agenda which is discussed in the podcast episode below.

Whether you're a student, an educator or a lifelong learner, there is sure to be something on the Educational Material page which will interest you!
