Culture Maker With or Against the Digital Humanities?

The idea that the world of education should evolve with technology is not in itself new.In 1997, in the Journal of Research and Training, Prof. Larry Cuban titled: "Classroom versus computer. Winning the Classroom". With regard to the place of computers in schools, three possible scenarios for the next ten years were presented. The "cautious optimists" scenario predicted that the new approaches that had emerged with the presence of the computer would become commonplace and would then cause a transformation of pedagogical situations. We are still waiting...In 2020, will both the Maker culture and the Digital Humanities suffer the same fate as their predecessors? Will there be a struggle between the Maker culture and the Digital Humanities? On the contrary, are they compatible and under what conditions?We will address these issues more specifically through the teaching of history in elementary school.
