    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Just like assuming that all young people are “digital natives” is wrong, so is it wrong to assume that they are adroit interpreters of primary visual sources. This assignment seeks to use the interest younger students have in visual culture in order to expand their abilities to interpret the past. In this case, because students are interpreting images of public education, something with which most of them have had direct experience, their interaction with these primary sources will be relatively intimate. Thus this assignment has two built-in advantages: the use of visuals and a “projected” nostalgia. Students may not initially observe images within the historical context that produced the primary source. As Barbara Ormond and others recommend, teachers should guide our students through a detailed process that makes images, initially, less discernible so that in the end students will become better interpreters of the past.
