Watch the Recap of our Workshop at Temple University
@sndbox was in Philadelphia this past Wednesday for a Steemit workshop at Temple University. Our incubator has been busy on-boarding graduate students who are currently using Steemit as sounding board for their historical research. Behind the scenes, @sndbox has generated Steemit accounts for 15 students and 2 new communities. Here they are, say hello!
@hourofhistory, @dduquette, @engledd, @jfeagan, @cheider, @charliehersh, @tmaust, @chelseareed, @johnesmithiii, @gvgktang, @yingchen, @connellgregg, @xiaonanli, @peartree4, @landy-yinan, @phillyhistory, and @phillyculture.
Each of these students are currently using Steemit to blog, document and share their ongoing research for the course. A community account, led by [@phillyhistory] is being used to compile student research, share it with the wider community and accrue funding to support a series of grants for the Philadelphia History Museum and programming for historical research institutions in Philadelphia. The precise criteria for these Steem-powered grants are currently being debated and will be decided by entire class over the next few weeks. 100% of @phillyhistory’s Steem and SBD will go towards this program. You can read the full mission here.
@phillyhistory is a Philadelphia History Initiative. This crypto-experiment conducted by graduate courses at Temple University's Center for Public History and MLA Program, is exploring history and empowering education. Click here to learn more.
