Dan Carlin - Hardcore History Archive - 9 views

  •  
    This is the latest episode from the Hardcore History program, a podcast updated every month or two focussing on historical topics in often novel ways. Dan Carlin has a Bachelor degree in military history and his focus is on military and social history, which I and my students find interesting. I think sometimes his versions of history can be spurious (the latest one in particular) yet the value of podcasts for student learning are enormous. I make my students download iTunes and get them through that. Happy listening!

AudioOwl - History - Free audio Books - Download mp3 and iPod format today! - 20 views

    Very cool! You can download free audiobooks (and for once not all of them are C19th originals; some are quite recent) in a format that plays through iTunes and on your iPod/iPhone. For those of us who use iTunes to get our podcasts/lectures/etc this is good news indeed!

    "The American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning is dedicated to renewing interest in history by challenging traditional ways that people learn about the past. Founded in 1981 and based at the City University of New York Graduate Center, ASHP/CML produces print, visual, and multimedia materials that explore the richly diverse social and cultural history of the United States. We also lead professional development seminars that help teachers to use the latest scholarship, technology, and active learning methods in their classrooms. "

    Seems to have a few sources in there, strong ideological agenda aside. Might be good for teaching the history of the poor or minorities.

    This seems to update with interesting topics that students might find relevant for research or for classroom activities. I use Bloglines to subscribe to the feeds on sites like this (Google Reader is also good) and that way I only have to go to one site to keep up to date.

    An excellent collection of some important historical works, downloadable for free. Some people may lament that students won't read them anymore, but hey isn't it better than them just watching MTV? Controversial...

Stuff You Missed in History Class - The Blogs at HowStuffWorks - 0 views

  •  
    This is the blog which accompanies the podcast Stuff You Missed in History Class. Like just about all History podcasts, it's easily found through iTunes. My students have found the format on SYMIHC as user-friendly and valuable for their research. Worth a listen.

    "The IISH collections comprise archive, library and audio-visual material with a thematic emphasis on social and emancipatory movements. The institute holds over 3,000 archives, more than 1,000,000 printed volumes, and a equivalent number of audio-visual items." Looks good. I love social history.

    This site looks like an excellent collection of sources, lectures, images and heaps of other stuff on all aspects of American history. You can even ask a historian a question about US history. How cool!

Dan Carlin - Hardcore History - 5 views

  •  
    My students like Dan. He has a dramatic and engaging way of going over historical topics and I've found him generally quite accurate. The podcasts cover a variety of topics; I subscribe to them through iTunes for free (^).(^) and then post them on moodle for the kids to download for their research. Does anyone know any other good podcasts?
  •  
    I'd already saved this but Dan has just released the fourth show in his excellent 'Ghosts of the Ostfront' series so I thought I'd bookmark it again. If you're teaching World War II or the Indian Wars I strongly recommend you take a listen to Dan's podcasts. I put them up on our Moodle site so the students can use them for research; I usually download podcasts through iTunes. Some students enjoy them so much they listen to them on their own afterwards.
