Eight Lessons in Teaching History With Technology

A couple of month ago I launched an on-demand version of my popular Teaching History With Technology course. So far more than 50 people have completed the course. The question that almost everyone asks before they enroll in the course is, "what's covered in the course?" That's a fair question to ask so I published the following outline of the eight lessons in the course.

  • Lesson 1 - Search Strategies for History Students
    • Lesson 1b - saving and sharing search results.

  • Lesson 2 - Using technology to help students analyze historical/ primary source documents.
    • Lesson 2b - Making artifacts interactive.


  • Lesson 3 - Hosting online history discussions
    • The importance of structure and expectations.


  • Lesson 4 - Using audio in history lessons.
    • Recording history with students
    • Hearing history


  • Lesson 5 - Creating multimedia timelines with students.
    • Simple to complex options for every grade level.


  • Lesson 6 - Creating multimedia maps
    • Google Maps and Earth are not your only options.


  • Lesson 7 - Creating videos and teaching with video.
    • Student creations and teacher creations.


  • Lesson 8 - Making and using virtual tours.
    • Virtual Reality tours, Augmented Reality tours, and online virtual tours.
The eight lessons in Teaching History With Technology are delivered via email. Each lesson contains at least one how-to video (20-30 minutes) and a suggested activity to use in your classroom. Click here to get started today!
