Visualizing America: The Peoples' History
Organized by: Crandall Shifflett
History textbooks are boring, outdated, and conventional, largely text-driven, unappealing to an image-driven population. Funds will be raised to support teams of college student interns (stipends) and expenses of high school juniors for research, software, and production of creative and technologically sophisticated visual, immersive, and interactive renderings of America in twelve periods from prehistory to the present. The online Peoples' History of the United States will become the standard "textbook" for public education.
