Well, I haven’t received any worried emails about the fact that I haven’t blogged recently…I feel so unloved! School holidays and the arrival of a student teacher has meant that I have not created any podcasts lately nor thought much about technology and history.
A few things:
- I hope to be collaborating with Thian, a history teacher in Singapore who teaches 20th century history. We’ll probably end up exchanging podcasts and maybe doing some online lessons through Skype.
- iHistory is making it into hardprint – a mob called Learning Innovation in the US is writing a book on technology and learning, and iHistory rates half a chapter.
- I’m gearing up for the second iHistory fieldtrip – a replica of the first but with a different class. The Bendigo Gaol is again accessible, but may not be for much longer. Hopefully whoever takes control of it will allow it to be used for historical purposes.
