Kristina Holzweiss's curator insight, April 28, 2013 10:12 PM

The Historical Scene Investigation Project (HSI) was designed for social studies teachers who need a strong pedagogical mechanism for bringing primary sources into their classroom. With the advent and accessibility of the internet, many libraries, universities and government agencies are housing their historical documents online. Simultaneously, there has been a push in K-12 history education to give students experiences that more closely resemble the work of a real historian.

How 7 Education Technology Platforms Have Changed How We Learn | Effective Teaching and Learning Techniques | Scoop.it

"Education technology has changed what’s possible in learning. No longer are students confined to desks, textbooks, or even classrooms or schools. Today, a student has at least the potential for access to apps, an incredible catalogue of videos, podcasts, learning simulations, digital communities and so much more, all through a simple internet connection. The following 7 educational technology platforms are good representatives of some of these changes, and the chart above is a snapshot of how exactly they’ve changed what’s possible in learning, from new sources of data to the potential for a global audience."
