About: EDSITEment is a partnership among the National Endowment for the Humanities, Verizon Foundation, and the National Trust for the Humanities.

EDSITEment offers a treasure trove for teachers, students, and parents searching for high-quality material on the Internet in the subject areas of literature and language arts, foreign languages, art and culture, and history and social studies.

All websites linked to EDSITEment have been reviewed for content, design, and educational impact in the classroom. They cover a wide range of humanities subjects, from American history to literature, world history and culture, language, art, and archaeology, and have been judged by humanities specialists to be of high intellectual quality. EDSITEment is not intended to represent a complete curriculum in the humanities, nor does it prescribe any specific course of study.

The EDSITEment experience includes:

a user-friendly website with links to over 200 of the top humanities sites
online lesson plans which integrate EDSITEment resources to promote active learning.
EDSITEment was selected as one of five finalists in the Education and Academia category of a Computerworld Smithsonian award for Innovation Network. As a finalist, the EDSITEment website has been accepted into the Smithsonian Institution’s Permanent Research Collection of Information Technology. The permanent collection is the world’s premier historical record of computing applications and innovations. Finalists demonstrate clearly how information technology is being used to improve society.
