A discussion of the NT Pod, a podcast offering a historical approach to the New Testament and Christian Origins: how it began, how it evolved, its benefits outside the classroom and how it has been received.

My presentation is about a project my students and I created last fall. We made a Google Map that located civil and human rights activism in Durham, NC. Each map point includes writing, images and in some cases audio documentary work. To be successful, students had to learn about Durham history, civil and human rights activism, google technology, documentary techniques and the Pauli Murray Project. Students were required to engage with the Durham community which they reported was very gratifying. The map can be viewed at www.paulimurrayproject.org. The project has been nominated for the Oliver W. Koonz Human Rights Prize.
