UMBC's Center for History Education (CHE) and New Media Studio have collaborated with teachers from Baltimore County Public Schools to create a new online resource for Hampton National Historic Site. "Hampton: A Revolutionary Place" was created as part of CHE's Making American History Master Teachers in Baltimore County Program, funded with a grant to Baltimore County Public Schools from the United States Department of Education. The Hampton project is one of several "virtual fieldtrips" to come out of last summer's workshop in digital storytelling and oral history. During the program, the New Media Studio worked with BCPS teachers to create rich media resources combining digital storytelling, photography, videography and web design.
The National Park Service is featuring the project on the Hampton website.
