Windows to the World: Digital Artifacts for Global Educators is an innovative, digital toolbox that advances humanities education in rural Indiana. It connects K-16 educators with Indiana University’s museums and archival collections, which have been developed by expert faculty, staff, and curators.
The Windows to the World project provides teachers and students with cutting-edge, yet accessible, academic research and educational materials. The toolbox takes some of the most extensive museum and archival collections in the state of Indiana and engages students via object-based approaches to learning. The interactive, map-based digital portal introduces students to archaeological, artistic, religious, and literary works from around the world, broadening the horizons of what it means to learn about people and cultures.
