Go Social Studies Go

Go Social Studies Go | technologies | Scoop.it

Go Social Studies Go is a free site dedicated to making the study of history fun and painless.

John Dalziel's insight:

Go Social Studies Go could be an excellent resource for some practitioners and their learners.
The site is divided into three main sections;

   - U.S. History,

   - World History, and

   - World Religions
Learners can access text, comparable with many existing textbooks, along with multimedia elements for the topics they're reading about.
For some learners, Go Social Studies Go can offer a nice refresher on many topics pre-face-2-face sessions and/or when revising.

Boundless - The Free Textbook Replacement

Boundless - The Free Textbook Replacement | technologies | Scoop.it

Boundless has launched the public beta version of its brand new site.

 

Boundless is...

- iPad-friendly and works on laptops;

- a way to turn open source information into a simple easy-to-use digital textbook;

- is free;

- generates digital resources for users based on the textbook practitioners and/or learners would normally use in their course(s).

 

Users can still use the printed textbook and use Boundless as a free digital supplement.

 

The new Boundless UI has an instant search feature built into it  and the digital textbooks have no expiration date. They’re not rentals or anything that would cost you money since it’s all open source.
