Preserving Digital Culture
Citation for image used for title and conclusion slides:
Hi! I’m Edie Erickson and I’m an elementary teacher from Michigan. I love teaching with technology and also have a deep interest in history, so the idea of digital preservation was especially intriguing to me. Where would society be today if the works of DaVinci, Newton, and VanGogh were lost forever? What if the letters and writings of Abraham Lincoln had disappeared or become unusable? If digital preservation is ignored, future generations could miss out on important artifacts simply because they were not preserved.
