Students in Collingwood, Ontario, recently shared videos they produced to document the community's role in World War II. The audio/video project, which a historical society and museum will use to educate the public about Collingwood's heritage, boosted learning about local history and primary research, said Mike McMillan, a Canada and World Studies teacher. Students researched using newspapers and the archives of the Clyde Aircraft-produced newspaper, photographs and an interview with Emma Wilson, a local woman who worked as a welder during the war, McMillan said.
