Teaching with Technology
1968: The Whole World Was Watching, An Oral History South Kingstown High School “The Whole World Was Watching: An Oral History of 1968” is a joint project between South Kingstown High School (SKHS) and Brown University's Scholarly Technology Group. The project was sponsored by the Rhode Island Committee for the Humanities and by NetTech. The project web site contains transcripts, audio recordings, and edited stories from a series of interviews conducted in the spring of 1998. Students from SKHS interviewed Rhode Islanders about their recollections of the year 1968. The personal memories and stories, which include references to the Vietnam War, the struggle for Civil Rights, the Assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, are a living history of one of the most tumultuous years in United States history.
