Making History Come Alive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this session, attendees will learn several ways they can use MAKER and technology to bring social studies and history to life! Attendees will experience student projects and, through the video and written reflections, hear from the students what worked and what they want to do differently next time. They will "play" with creating similar projects to experience what students do and learn. Finally, we will brainstorm ideas for projects in their classes to highlight MAKER and technology. This session will feature green screen, maker, and tech tools that work on iPads, Chrome, and the web. All grade levels and experience levels will be able to use these ideas!
