Technological History for High School (9-12) Implementing technology into the classroom in a high school setting to explain historical events in accordance to the ISTE NETS for Students. Patricia Crowley October 13, 2009
1. Create and publish an online art gallery with examples and commentary that demonstrate an understanding of different historical periods, cultures, and countries. (1, 2)
Art is instrumental in understanding different time periods in history. They offer a visual example to what is offered in the text.
The online gallery would allow students an opportunity to view different pieces of art and to draw connections to the historical text.
Ex: The founding of Rome
by Romulus and Remus, and
understanding the beginning
and myth of the city of Rome.
2. Identify a complex global issue, develop a systematic plan of investigation, and present innovative sustainable solutions. (1, 2, 3, 4)
Students would be split into groups and asked to pick a world topic to research and present in class.
This would allow the students to become more aware of the world around them, issues that are addressing people around the world, and solutions that can be found.
Ex: world hunger and solutions to fix it.
Students will be asked:
“ What can we do to help?”
3.Model legal and ethical behaviors when using information and technology by properly selecting, acquiring, and citing resources. (3, 5)
3 important things to do while doing research: know creditable sources, getting the correct information, and citing!
Spending a class period to show students the proper way to do all three will help insure they learn the proper way to do research.
The OWL from Purdue explains all citing forms in easy instructions. Wikipedia is a bad source for research!
4 .Employ curriculum-specific simulations to practice critical-thinking processes. (1, 4)
