Teaching History with Technology

    I didn’t feel nurtured by this. I saw some neat implementation of technology for current events. Otherwise, the only history application was the day in the life of a hobo project. So where is the fundamental change in how technology will change teaching history? I love to implement tech tools, but when I have to share 3 computer labs with a campus of over 3000 students and a few mobile computer carts, what ends up happening is a few tech projects here and there. Go to any workplace, the employees don’t have to “sign-up” to use technology…they have dedicated resources. The 11th graders on our campus were all issued laptops for a 1:1 history program and the district created “canned” online/moodle curriculum for them. So it’s death by powerpoint with your own personal view screen. So until there is a true 1:1 situation where administrators trust teachers to use those resources responsibly, then I don’t see much opportunity for change.
