The Teaching History with Technology Workshop is an intensive hands-on environment for History and Social Studies educators. During this intensive workshop, participants will explore practical, dynamic, and creative ways to use technology in the classroom to enhance their curricula and provide students with unique opportunities to create original content to demonstrate their understanding. The workshop examines innovative ideas, effective techniques and thoughtful approaches for incorporating web tools, mobile devices, apps and emerging technologies into History and Social Studies curricula. In addition to exploring examples and content applicable to World History, United States History, and Civics at the middle school, high school and college level, this workshop emphasizes the use of technology to provide students with the ability to create digital stories, screencasts, collaborative documents and presentations, interactive maps, and timelines. Other topics include social networking, searching for & evaluating sources, and emerging technologies. The projects, concepts, and tools addressed in this workshop not only apply to The Common Core State Standards, but also to the 4Cs – Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, & Creativity – as defined by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.
