Library of Congress Creates Educational Apps for Students

The Library of Congress worked with educational organizations to develop a new set of web and mobile apps about Congress and civics for use in K–12 classrooms. They feature primary sources from U.S. history that help students address complex questions.

The apps are:

  • DBQuest, developed by iCivics. DBQuest teaches history and civics through the use of primary source documents and evidence-based learning. It offers a platform, accessible on mobile devices, that reinforces evidence-based reasoning and document-based questioning by teaching students to identify and evaluate evidence, contextualize information and write sound supporting arguments.
  • Case Maker, developed by Bean Creative. Case Maker is a customizable system for inquiry-based learning for K-12 students using primary sources from the Library of Congress. Modeled after the “observe, reflect, question” framework, developed under the Teaching with Primary Sources program, Case Maker guides students to challenge a question, collect evidence and make a case.

For more information, read the press release.
