“Together, These New Applications Are A Valuable Addition To The Suite Of Civics”
Have you ever considered where a piece of information gets its accreditation and the credibility? Ever wondered how that information is validated? When you read a scientific paper about how a new discovery, the arguments commonly initiate in debates on how such matter of state is relevant to such scientific opinion or theory. A long time ago, many people firmly believed that the world was a flat plane. Many generations later, we have come to the point of discovery that the world is not flat, instead it is a globe, which is at a constant gravitational pull (gravitons) state, creating a natural spherical shape.
Today, the educational sectors main concerns aren’t the shape of the earth, instead it is focused towards the future generations of tomorrow’s leaders. The leaders of tomorrow, are dependent on the academic curriculum in which are taught in the standard educational systems in the United States. If the academic curriculum lacks in any specific way, it could jeopardize the basic fundamentals of the educational system, the youth’s academia standards and may even change the belief systems that are established in the scientific communities.
A leader of tomorrow isn’t born with prescribed-leadership knowledge. A leader is molded and formed into shape. In order to establish a level of leadership, knowledge is vital. If the wrong information or the wrong concept is taught through such educational system, it can destroy the very foundations of what the educational systems have been built upon so far. Therefore, primary resources or authentic knowledge is key to the educational systems for the youth. Two of the most 2nd important subjects that are ranked second important next to history, are congress and civics. According to a recent post from The Journal, the Library of Congress has taken innovative steps to help solidify the access of authentic knowledge which is specific to Congress & Civics. With entrusted and associated partners, the Library of Congress was able to develop over 5 different apps, 2 in which rank the most important for the educational sectors that are recommended to consider are; DBQuest & Case Maker.
The DBQuest app is a smart software application that is offered by Library of Congress; that provides historical primary-based documents and evidence based learning program. The educational application for students is made of multi-functions, providing students insight on how to build supportive arguments and abstract from vital pieces of historical information. An example of a DBQuest forum can be a copy of the original Declaration of The Independence. DBQuest app is backed up by historical contextual and physical artifacts.
The Case Maker smart educational application for students, was developed by partnered company, Bean Creative. Case Maker is an inquiry-based learning system for students whom build inquiries from primary sources which are preserved at the Library of Congress. The app helps to build the students understanding and the level of comprehension against such historical archives. Students are able to build a challenging debate, collect and compile evidence and make a case under a framework.
Earlier this month, Lee Ann, whom is the director of Educational Outreach Division at the Library of Congress, stated that; “together, these new educational applications for students are a valuable addition to the suite of civics-related tools that our partners have developed”.
The technology industry has so far proven benefits, despite the overruled debates about how technology is a “human-hiccup against nature”. As a conclusion, we may see more governmental bodies adapt to an educational application for students, which would establish an authentic source for primary resources to be regulated during research, lecture or training sessions. We could possibly see the diversity of expanding educational apps, reaching military sectors for training purposes, governmental apps for interns and other fields of profession in which the smart software application haven’t reached yet.
