Ress ressst@YAHOO.COM ----------Original Message---------- Dear All, I apologize if this is a naÔve question; I havenít been trained as a public historian: Has anyone found a way to permit collaborators (in this case high school students) to locate historical events and locations on a common online historical (or current) map. This project would have a budget sufficient to cover some website programming work. Iím not looking for anything polished, just something that can create a sense of the historical landscape with regards to the history of healthcare in Toronto. Essentially, Iím looking for ways to help students brainstorm and gather research as they work towards choosing individual research projects. Iíd like to do this using a collaborative wiki, timeline, and, if possible, a common map. Any suggestions, advice, or dire warnings, would be appreciated.
