10 Useful History and Geography Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Useful History and Geography Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | History Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

"Below are some good iPad apps for History and Geography teachers. I am sharing them with you on the occasion of the start of a new school year. I invite you to have a look and share with us if you have other titles to add to the list. If you want more resources for  back to school I recommend that you check this resource section."


Via John Evans
Paul Avila's insight:

This is a great way for students to be engaged in history outside of the classroom. I see that some of the apps have notifications for a new topics, which gives students a daily rotation of historical events and topics. I would recommend using one of these apps for a project. This project could even be designing an app that would be interesting to people of a certain time period.

Facebook History of the World

Facebook History of the World | History Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
If Facebook had existed during the Big Bang, Ancient Rome, World War II, and the rest of Earth's major historical events.

Via Jelmer Evers
Paul Avila's insight:

This is an entertaining way to illustrate the historical narrative. This connects facebook, a social media outlet most students are familiar with, to a general overview to world history events. Even though it may not provide an in depth look into the events themselves, teachers could use this to refer to through the school year. Then, they can expand on the events as they go down the timeline.

This chart can change your mindset and unlock new learning opportunities

This chart can change your mindset and unlock new learning opportunities | History Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
This chart helps lay out the basic idea behind changing your mindset. You can use a 'fixed' or a 'growth' mindset to enhance your life. Which will you choose?

Via Gust MEES
Paul Avila's insight:

This chart can be used for students as a guideline for the right mindset in dealing with their education. Students need the right mindset to achieve in schools and avoid the mental barriers preventing them from growth. I would probably use this chart in the beginning of the school year to show what I expect from my students.  This could be useful for the less motivated students in the class.

Educational Leadership in the 21st Century: Things to Keep in Mind

Educational Leadership in the 21st Century: Things to Keep in Mind | History Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
There can be many approaches which can aid the development of an educational leader in 21stcentury, here’s the step-wise of one such approach.

Via Gust MEES
Paul Avila's insight:

This is a pretty good article for teachers who are trying to divert from the traditional methods of leading the class. The main focus should be the steps given, which are easy to learn and broad enough to adapt any classroom. I would recommend others use this article as a guideline to how you should lead the class room. I like the idea of imagining the role as a "learner first."

World Wonders: A new flipped classroom tool for teachers


Via Jelmer Evers
Paul Avila's insight:

This is useful tool for those teaching World History, whether the classroom is flipped or not. It provides images of the locations as well as descriptions. Teachers could refer to this site when they are in a unit where one of these places are referenced. They could use it to show what the location looks like today.

Open Badges: a visual, learner-centric approach to recognising achievement

Open Badges: a visual, learner-centric approach to recognising achievement | History Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Open Badges are online indicators of skills learned inside or outside the classroom. In order to understand how badges might be used to support learning and development in higher education, Ian Glo...

Via Ana Cristina Pratas, Dennis T OConnor
Paul Avila's insight:

This is an interesting idea to use in the classroom. It would motivate students to improve their skills to achieve these badges. I would suggest implementing these with some incentive system so that students pursue these badges instead of earning them passively as useless labels. These badges can be useful to track progress of historical thinking skills.

Ooh I love this idea!  Many of my high school students are gaining so many informal learning sklls from social media, web enhancement, digital writing, the list goes on.  Giving an open badge is empowering!

12 Books About Learning Every Teacher Should Read

Via Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.
Paul Avila's insight:

This is an interesting list of books that add to a teacher's philosophy and tool kit. I believe that a teacher should always keep a good library of educational texts to help them improve their teaching style. Keeping up with new educational techniques is essential for a 21st century teacher. I might pick up some of these books in the future.

Not just for "schooling" boys but for all students.
