The internet was indispensable, especially Youtube. Video clips, photographs, and music enabled students to understand the creative side of education. However, in many situations the technology distracted the students from their real assignment and while it was entertaining they did not extrapolate the meaning of a particular principle. Technology can visually recreate a period, an event, or a person but it remains important to read and ponder the significance of history. The human element of teaching can be lost and be replaced by media.
