Visualization of the Ukranian Diaspora
Digital Humanities Committee Seed Grant, Seton Hall University
This project will explore the applicability of visualization technology with teacher education candidates as they examine content and the processes of using technology for teaching and learning. Students in the U.S. and in Ukraine will research and prepare materials on the Ukrainian diaspora to create a visual representation of the data using the DH tool, Visual Eyes. Ukrainian students will focus on the historic causes for, the nature and extent of, and the internal consequences of the Ukrainian migration patterns while U.S. students will look at the consequences of Ukrainian settlement in New Jersey. Students will use Visual Eyes to gain an understanding of how technology can be used for gathering, analyzing, and displaying data in a classroom setting. Project assessment will be based on student and faculty reflections on the process, technology integration, skills gained as a result of the project. The goal of the project is to create a framework for preparing teacher education candidates with 21st century skills and new ways to generate, analyze and display data. This project builds on an 8-year collaboration between Seton Hall University (James Daly) and the Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University (Dr Olga Tarasenko) through the Center for Global Education.
