Description
The course program begins by introducing students to the evolution, meaning and importance of the use of digital resources in learning, research and dissemination of historical knowledge. It follows an approach to research, evaluation and critical selection of digital content, focused on the exploitation of digital resources (archives, libraries, databases, magazines, etc.) essentially available on the Internet. Then, the exploration of information management tools, such as bibliographic references, as well as data visualization, is carried out. Finally, students develop a research project work with teacher orientationan using Geographic Information Systems to the analysis of the historical information.
