Social Studies

"Doing History" Digitally

EDU 945

Eduspire’s courses are offered by Wilson College as graduate-level courses, and most courses can also be taken as part of the Master of Educational Technology (MET) degree program.

“Doing history” is a social studies pedagogical method that asks students not only to think about history, but to replicate the conditions and means under which histories are made. This class examines interactive tech tools that will aid social science teachers in “doing history” and understanding the processes that make history happen.

So many Social Studies teachers are challenged to not only impart a knowledge of concepts and facts to their students, but also to model the actual act of “doing history.” How can we help students appreciate that history is also a process of discovery? How are real historians carrying out their craft? How is technology an integral part of the historian’s toolbox? What specific strategies and activities can educators use in the classroom to promote historical thinking skills among their students? Join us as we embark upon a journey of discovery which will leave you inspired to create digitally interactive history lessons where your students will connect with the subject matter in a modern way.
