History teaching should according to new syllabi, stimulate
critical thinking and problematize various uses of history. Through
a unique collaboration with researchers in history education from
Umeå University and Stanford University, you as a teacher are
welcome to meet and discuss new perspectives on learning in history
and using digital tools.
A day filled with lectures and workshops involving educational
materials and digital resources from the United States and Sweden
will in a tangible way be presented and used. For example, we will
highlight the practice of history surrounding Columbus, 9/11, the
outbreak of the First World War and 'the Tudors'.
The latest research on digital media and historical thinking is
presented and results are associated with teaching practice in
secondary education. Through workshops and talks, we want to share
experience and discuss the possibilities and problems of todays'
and tomorrow's teaching of history.
Presentations and workshops take place partially in
English. If possible please bring a laptop computer with updated
Java and Google Chrome.
Participating researchers include:
Thomas Nygren, Kristina Ledman & Björn Åstrand Umeå
Joel Breakstone, Mark Smith, Brad Fogo, Jolie Matthews & Brian
Johnsrud Stanford University
