#NCSS14: Mapping the Social Studies

esri-e1416693561110

So. Very. Tired. I love social studies but my feet hurt. My brain is full. The back of my head is buzzing from the last of more than several caffeinated drinks. And what seems like an endless series of apparently important meetings. It’s been a long two days. Too much learning, history nerdness, and Diet Pepsi. Yeah, I know. Pretty much the ultimate in first world problems. One more session today. Then the two hour session that […]

#NCSS14: Social Media as Inquiry Tool

historytech

An interesting conversation that I joined late. Members of the NCSS Technology Community are working to develop policy and recommendations that they will deliver to the NCSS Board of Directors. It’s an important conversation that I wish we could spend more time with this topic. Very interesting topic. And it’s not just whether or not we use tools, it’s the actual use of the tools. As Dr. Joe O’Brien said, Leaving the house without your […]

3D Printing Allows Man to Preserve & Replicate a Piece of Family History in Incredible Fashion

stone-3d

3D printed replica (photo by Preston McFarland) The way that this world works is that objects are built up, and then thanks in part to both Mother Nature and human interaction, they break down and return to the very earth that they came from. This is true with just about everything that exists on Earth, whether it is a building such as the Colosseum in Rome, a tree growing in your backyard, or a stone that […]

#NCSS14: Tasty tech tools that align to the C3 Inquiry Arc

tasty-tech-tools-logo-e1416593139599

Be warned. This is a post that is nothing but blatant and intentional propaganda. Yup. A quick post about my first session here at the NCSS conference. The goal of Three Tasty Tech Tools for Integrating the C3 Inquiry Arc is to quickly share a basic structure of what a lesson / unit design might look like when using online tools. My goal is not to suggest that there’s is the only way to do this but […]

Arc-Team: Conflict Archaeology of the First World War on the Carnic ridge and in the Sexten Dolomites

grenzgang

With the centenary years 2014–2018, a hitherto relatively unknown branch of archaeological research, the so-called conflict archaeology, is coming into the limelight. Since  excavation work is able to supply only very selective assertions on account of the enormous extent of the mountain front, the overriding objective of monument conservation in the years to come must focus on taking stock of all material remains from the WWI era. As a result of the developments in satellite […]
