  • A school leader who wishes to “create and sustain a culture that supports digital age learning must become comfortable collaborating as co-learners with colleagues and students around the world” (aka “I don’t do technology” is no longer acceptable.)  Also, this framework seeks to help school leaders propel their organizations forward as members of “dynamic learning communities.” Vision is vital.

World History Connected: EJournal of Learning and Teaching - 6 views

    Has articles and some source material links related to World History. The site (run out of University of Illinois, by the looks) has a strong focus on 'big history.' I hadn't encountered this term before; it seems to mean looking at history not through civilisations but rather periods or regions. If that description is wrong and someone could provide more accuracy on 'big history' that would be cool.

    World History Connected:
    The EJournal of Learning and Teaching

    World history poses extraordinary demands upon those who teach it, challenging the talent of experienced instructors as well as to those new to the field.

    World History Connected is designed for everyone who wants to deepen the engagement and understanding of world history: students, college instructors, high school teachers, leaders of teacher education programs, social studies coordinators, research historians, and librarians.

    For all these readers, WHC presents innovative classroom-ready scholarship, keeps readers up to date on the latest research and debates, presents the best in learning and teaching methods and practices, offers readers rich teaching resources, and reports on exemplary teaching.

    WHC is free worldwide. It is published by the University of Illinois Press, and its institutional home is Washington State University. Editors: Heather Streets, Washington State University and Tom Laichas, Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences. Associate Editor: Tim Weston, University of Colorado.

    Funding for World History Connected, Inc. has been provided by The College Board and private donations. Should you wish to contribute, please contact Heidi Roupp, Executive Director []

    The home page is always the current issue.
    The journal focuses on the New World History (looking at the world at a global scale across time) as opposed to the one civilization at a time approach. See the World History AP course description for an example of what this means:

    David, as an Australian you are at Ground Zero of Big History since its leader is an Australian = David Christian.
    Christian's _Maps of Time: An Introduction to Big History_ is the one book to read on the subject.
    This article well covers it:

    Google David Christian, Big History for more
    Again, the journal is not specifically focused on Big History but on the New World History, but it did have one issue on Big History as its forum:

    More links than you probably want here about Big History:

    This month's forum is on Latin America.
    Other forums range the gamut of world history.
    Thanks very much Jeremy. I'll check it out!
