To me, getting students to work with digital technology alongside eighteenth-century British Literature is now an exciting, but also essential, facet of my teaching. The huge acceleration of the digitisation of historical texts in the past decade and a half has been the catalyst for a trickle-down effect from research to teaching practices. The issue of cost and accessibility aside, the exponential rise of such resources — such as the Burney Newpapers database , English Broadside Ballads, and Old Bailey Online — has enabled students to enrich their knowledge of eighteenth-century literary culture: they were able to see unusual and non-canonical texts, to examine literary works in the light of historical or cultural ideas specific to the period or even decade, and to pose invigorating questions about literary value. This initial phase crossed over with tutors and professors experimenting with writing assignments and the different engagement with literary texts that might be enabled by digital platforms such as the wiki or the blog post. Adrianne Wadewitz now sadly deceased was also a leading experimenter using Wikipedia as a teaching tool. Laura Linker High Point University asks her Gothic novel students to use Google Earth to map narrative journeys, and even Second Life as a way of entering into characterization. In a different course Rachel asks students to create experimental and imaginative bibliographical descriptions of unusual and non-canonical eighteenth-century novels, see here.

You've seen that little black and yellow trampoline game all over but still have no clue why groups of people are spiking a ball down into it. Finally, you'll get some answers. Spikeball is a new sport that's sweeping the nation. It's commonly referred to as the love child between volleyball and four-square. It is played 2 vs 2, with a taut hula hoop sized Spikeball net placed between the teams. A player starts a point by serving the ball down on the net so it ricochets up at his opponents.
