The University of Texas at Austin


Workshop goals

  • Content knowledge--learn more about topic

  • Pedagogical knowledge--learn more about what to do with topic via historical thinking (the use of primary sources and scaffolding document based questions)

  • Technology as an integrated pedagogical tool-- learn how to teach historical thinking through and with technology applications

  • Take the content and pedagogy and create materials for my classroom --


Materials for historical thinking

  • Presidential Timeline as a way to access organized & digitized primary source archives --& engage in learning activiites

  • Prezi as organizer of historical reasoning (e.g. chronology, priority, categories, and response to ‘big’ question)

  • Voicethread as interactive exchanges of historical reasoning (e.g. asking our students and each other-why is this important)

  • Fakebook Walls and BigHugeLabs as revealing the multiple perspectives (e.g. What would the historical figures of the time think)

    • Weebly website creation tool as Performance task for historical thinking (e.g. a collection of primary sources and document based questions via a web based site that attends to a historical question)


What do we teach and why

  • What choices do you make in teaching about the Vietnam War?

  • What must we teach?

  • What guides your choices?

  • Could each table select ONE notion (you can use YouTube) or name of person…that we can add to our canvas of possibilities

  • Link to Prezi so that each TABLE can add notion(s)


What is it that we typically teach and how and why

  • A technology integration note--Use Prezi in whole class discussion to note what we value and why we value these elements in our teaching.

  • Prezi is a different presentation format (but similar to power point) that allows for the easier manipulation of ideas.

  • You can organize these ideas via consensus, chronology, priority, category... Your students can make these decisions from themselves too.
