iPads, iPods and other tablets are becoming more commonplace in the classroom, and schools are filling their devices with lots of Apps. Teachers could be missing valuable opportunities to truly embed the use of iPads in the classroom.

"FOUND is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.  We hope to bring new life to these images by sharing them with audiences far and wide. Their beauty has been lost to the outside world for years and many of the images are missing their original date or location."

Nice timeline map from 3500 BCE to the modern era. It is especially useful to compare the development of different civilizations globally. Lots of informative roll-over buttons and links to more detailed articles. In addition to the global view, you can zoom into for regional maps.

Illinois history teachers find themselves like bakers without a recipe

Illinois history teachers find themselves like bakers without a recipe | social studies education | Scoop.it

"Since their adoption, the Illinois State Board of Education has expected that a separate set of social studies Common Core standards was being developed for the 2013-2014 school year, according to Mary Fergus, a board representative.

 

But Medill Reports has learned from the National Governors Association, one of the two coalitions that wrote the Common Core, that no such standards are being developed."

 

The English Common Core has a short appendix of standards dedicated to teaching literacy in history classrooms. Many educators expected that content-specific history standards would follow.

 

Molly Myers, history department chair at Lindblom Math and Science Academy in the West Englewood neighborhood, attended summer training on how to implement the English core’s appendix of history standardsand prepare for the assumed release of the full set of history standards.

Spot Where Julius Caesar Was Stabbed Discovered

Spot Where Julius Caesar Was Stabbed Discovered | social studies education | Scoop.it
“ Archaeologists believe they have found the first physical evidence of the spot where Julius Caesar died, according to a new Spanish National Research Council report. ” Caesar, the head of the Roman Republic, was stabbed to death by a group of rival Roman senators on March 14, 44 B.C, the Ides of March. The assassination is well-covered in classical texts, but until now, researchers had no archaeological evidence of the place where it happened. . . .

Lachlan McDonald's curator insight, April 6, 2014 10:36 PM

 

Hi Class,

A fundamental tool of being a savvy historian is knowing the geographical locations (The Fertile Crescent, The Nile Valley) of ancient peoples (Mesopotamians, The Egyptians).
Why is it important?
Each time you familiarise yourself with a location and its peoples you start to build an internal map of the ancient world.

This site provides you with a number of important locations and there peoples of the Ancient World.
Click on a link for a interactive tour of each location. The tours are brief, however, the content is ideal for building a strong knowledge base.

If you wish to take notes or simply take your time you can control the progress of your journey by using the gold chapter arrow at the top right. 
Remember the tours are purposely brief and the exercise focuses on familiarising yourself with the ancient world so view as many locations and peoples as you can!

Mr McDonald
