Educational institutions cannot by themselves become contributors of historical material to Maine Memory Network, unless they have historical archives. However, MMN provides diverse opportunities for teachers and students to use primary source materials in the classroom, and to engage, work with, and contribute to their community.
Benefits of Participation:
Working within MMN and with the local community gives students the opportunity to:
- Use and analyze thousands of primary sources
- Access a multimedia research tool for Maine history projects and activities
- Search for, organize, and annotate personal albums of historical items in the database
- Explore and interact with local historical collections
- Partner with and learn from community members
- Develop technology and a wide variety of other skills
- Share their work and the community's history with a vast and growing audience
How to Participate
There are many ways to participate, depending on your teaching goals, the experiences you want your students to have, your students' interests, the amount of time you have, and the resources available in your school and community.
