Archiving the Web with High School students

June 6, 2008

Earlier this Spring, Internet Archive in cooperation with Library of Congress and California Digital Library, coordinated a K-12 web archiving pilot in 3 high schools across the country (1 each in California, Illinois. and Louisiana). The purpose of the project was for the high school students to curate a time capsule of the Web from a students perspective and document how the web is being used by high school students in 2008.

The project was a great success thanks to the hard work from the participants and the students’ creativity. The collections are all live and accessible from the program web page.

Please enjoy these collections! We hope to enlarge the pilot in the Fall so please contact Archive-It at archive-it@archive.org if you know of any high school would like to be involved.
