It turns out our teachers, Hollywood and whoever we got our Thanksgiving mythology from (Big Turkey?) all made America's origin story far more boring than it actually was for some very disturbing reasons.

14 Good Social Studies Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

14 Good Social Studies Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | United States History | Scoop.it

This weekend while I was checking some of the iPad list apps in my archive and I came across a list which has not been updated for awhile now. The list features some interesting educational iPad apps for teaching and learning about social studies. Since the posting of that list,  many other apps have been released and some of them are making rounds on the web.


I have done some searching and curated this list containing some new apps that students and teachers of social studies can use in their class. Check them out and share with us what you think of them.

Lindsay Ahmann's curator insight, January 12, 2014 8:50 PM

Since most people are on the internet the majority of their day whether it is social media, work, email, or research, wouldn't it be so much easier to research things for school right on your phone and not get scrambled answers? YES! most teens use their smartphones to do their homework anyway, so why not make it a more reliable answer by having a certain app for it on their phone. Yes, it will increase the time they spend on their phones, but maybe it will make them learn more while their on them instead of being on Facebook or Instagram.
