The Guardian has an interactive experience waiting for anyone wanting to know more about World War I. Combining multiple forms of media, it is quite the visual interactive. Where was this when I was learning about WWI in History class? A global guide to the first world war – interactive documentary is an example of how to put knowledge in the hands of students in a way that will engage them. Would it reach everyone? Maybe not, but I would wager it is more compelling than an hour-long lecture on the subject. And I get to control the pace.
