256px-Cardinal_Wolsey_Christ_Church

This post was kindly written for us by Alex Porter – Head of History, Parmiter’s School The paradox of teaching A Level history is that you know very well your students’ education would be better served by studying topics in greater depth but unfortunately this has the potential to hamper their achievements in examination.

The ePADD Team on Processing and Accessing Email Archives

richard-fikes-email-archive-example-1024x912

There is already some great work exploring how to deal with email, but given that it is such a significant problem area it is great to see work focused on developing tools to make sense of this material. Of particular concern is how email is simultaneously so ubiquitous and so messy.  I’ve heard cases of […]

(So this is my go at GIF-ing round #2. I put it up on the Open Access Antiquarianism page too, but thought I’d double post it here. More soon. x) Scientific diagnostics can tell us a lot about the world around us. But they’re far more powerful and appealing when they’re visualized appropriately. For every exciting x-ray, infrared, or ultraviolet image that tells art historians and architects about what lies beneath the image or wall […]
