A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

The social studies/history classroom is rapidly changing as we try to keep pace with the demands of new technology, injecting rigorous standards into our practice, and teaching disciplinary literacy skills. At the heart of best practice in social studies instruction is student engagement. How can we engage students on their terms and still meet our objectives of content and skills? Our discipline is constantly fighting for relevancy in curriculums and even in state and national test designs. By using cutting-edge technology in our classrooms, social studies teachers can access instant relevance by utilizing apps for education, the latest software, Google tools, social media, screen casting and more – the stuff that can motivate and engage our students.

If you are anything like me, as a social studies teacher you feel lucky to have so many different options for instruction. But you also might be wondering:

  • My methods work fine, so why do I need new tools and technology?
  • Can I functionally improve the lesson just by putting it on the web?
  • Creating technology based lessons takes a lot of time – do I have the time?
  • Am I going to sacrifice skills or content to do all this?

The goal of this seminar is to answer these compelling questions and look at ways to design social studies/history lessons that are not only best practice in our discipline, but also utilize the latest, most cutting-edge technology and resources and are exciting for students to learn. We will focus on teacher‐friendly techniques that are time-sensitive and student-centered.

This seminar will focus on instructional methods and practical uses of the apps, sites, web tools, the flipped model and more. This seminar will pull together the best instructional methods and add tools that engage and motivate students. We will digitize your work to make your in-class instruction even more powerful. By starting with a rationale to teach with tech and discussing the merits behind this instruction, our seminar will leave you confident that you are doing the right thing for your students.

The day promises to be filled with practical strategies and ideas that will empower you to leverage the web in your classroom, increase student contact, reach students at their specific learning levels, differentiate your instruction, and so much more! I am really excited to connect with you. I think you will find that this model will help you reach students on their terms, while still empowering you to differentiate your instruction and meet your curriculum goals.

Sincerely,
Andrew Sharos

P.S. You will leave with a comprehensive handbook filled with the most cutting-edge technology resources ideal for social studies/history instruction.
