Learning History by Making History

Learning History by Making History | Teaching History With Tech | Scoop.it

When we learn Math and Science, we can “play” with it to see how stuffs work. Especially with modern technologies, even it’s not playing appealing learning games, students can simulations, manipulate factors, observe animations or execute experiments to figure out the patterns and rules. But when learning history, except reading written texts about facts and interpretations from scholars, can learners interact with history? Can we learn from history by asking questions of “what if…” ?

 

Using gaming and interactive fiction in the history classroom.

Digging for Truth - Minecraft Blog

Digging for Truth - Minecraft Blog | Teaching History With Tech | Scoop.it
In order to gain the insight needed to address this question, we have created four benchmark questions that will be explored along the way. These are:
Phase 1- How did early humans accomplish their basic needs?
Phase 2- How did early humans learn to adapt, utilize, and reshape their environment?
Phase 3- How did early human settlements evolve into civilizations?
Phase 4- How did civilizations expand into empires?
In our first phase of the game, we want to have the students simulate what neolithic hunter-gathers would have experienced: lack of resources, fear of predators, limited resources and food. Using the organizer, students will need to make a connection to our world today

5 Ways Technology Has Changed One of Education’s Most Traditional Subjects: History | Edudemic

5 Ways Technology Has Changed One of Education’s Most Traditional Subjects: History | Edudemic | Teaching History With Tech | Scoop.it

While few people would deny the reality of this transformation, the popular perception is that technology’s reach extends only to certain subjects. It surely influences the sciences, people believe, and it offers interactive solutions to the challenges of elementary education. But the humanities are perceived as old fashioned, set in their ways, and largely immune to technological influences.

How Historians Read
What are the literacy skills of historians? As opposed to mathematicians and chemists historians emphasized paying attention to the author or source when reading a text. They read with the view that both “author and reader are fallible and positioned.” Their purpose in reading a history book seemed to be to figure out what story a particular author wanted to tell (rather than discover one truth). Additionally, reading historical texts meant encountering words that are not current, for example “aeroplane,” and that are metaphorical, for example “Black Friday.”
