I thought this might be a really nice idea for developing the concept of change and continuity. Let me know if you decide to do something like this in your primary classroom!

I love the ways this idea could be used to develop historical understanding, and a sense of time and place, in the primary school.

 

Check out the video explaining what and how Historypin can be used, then go to the "schools" section for further information, activities, links and ideas.

History Discussion Simulations

Catherine Smyth's insight:

Teaching strategies to stimulate discussion in history and to help students (in this case, secondary students) develop historical understanding. Designed for online learning, many of the ideas can be adapted to teach a topic in a classroom environment.

Stimulating classroom discussion on historical events can be tricky - a guide to creating a student debate, specific to history classrooms/digital spaces.

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning...love it!

I think the scope for Scoop it is sensational. It's a great way to organise, filter, select and highlight online digital resources around a topic, theme or idea.

I love the way you mention digital citizenship =D

The 5th Grade teacher on this website uses 'Voicethread' with historical photographs. Click on the video "Ellis Island" to see how primary students build a historical narrative.

 

Voice thread transforms media into collaborative spaces with video, voice, and text commenting.

Use Voicethread and historical photographs to create digital historical narratives.  Much more engaging than the written version.

This interactive game helps students develop an understanding of evidence (a concept addressed in the new Australian Curriculum:history). It requires the analysis of both primary and secondary sources to answer the question of inquiry "how did this man die?"
