~Representing and promoting Digital Commonwealth at relevant educational conferences and meetings
~Assisting with the creation and testing of online learning resources covering themes relevant to Massachusetts history and social studies curricula
~The goal of the fellowship will be to help Boston Public Library better understand how digital collections can be integrated into classroom activities and Open Educational Resources (OER), what primary sources are most relevant to statewide learning standards, and how Digital Commonwealth (as both an online collection and an organization) can be a more prominent resource for improving educational outcomes.
