Favorite Tech Tools For Social Studies Classes | MindShift | KQED News - 1 views

  •  
    "Rachel Langenhorst helps teachers in her district find solutions for those issues. She used to teach social studies, but is now the K-12 Technology Integrationist and Instructional Coach at Rock Valley Community Schools in Iowa.

    "Really be cognizant of the digital tools you're picking and why you are picking them."
    She put together a list of favorite digital tools for the social studies classroom and shared them during an edWeb webinar. She emphasizes that, as with any classroom technology, teachers need to be careful not to just substitute a tech tool for an analog one. Instead, technology should be used to enhance classroom learning in ways that wouldn't be possible otherwise, including expanding learning beyond the classroom walls."

They offer photographs and some text with background music. There is a short test that viewers can take after watching the slides. These are like study cards.
