I believe teaching diversity in the classroom is something that needs to be addressed, and what better way of doing it in history? History is full of diverse issues and I feel like this would be very helpful to integrate these issues in the class room.

"After having become familiar with various apps, I’ve decided that it is time to put my bulky laptop aside and use the iPad almost exclusively in my history lessons. I have resolved not to go out of my way to accommodate the iPad, but to teach in a way that I would normally. If I am to discover new ways of doing things in lessons along the way, so be it."

Using iPads in the classroom allow students to be hands on and use different things that they are familiar with, rather than carrying around a bulky text book.

Most students find history very boring, so using technology in the classroom can help engage students and allow them to have active participation. Also these new technologies can allow students to ask questions and get answers based on their own findings.

Learn about 11 great resources that look at "a people's history" that come from the Zinn Education Project. These projects are a sampling that help teachers "teach outside the textbook." The goal of the Zinn Education Project is to teach history of the "ordinary people" which is often not in the textbook. This post on GOOD includes a variety of resources, including lessons, books and documentaries. Check out the materials posted in this article, or go directly to the site located at http://zinnedproject.org/.
