    Hello Social Studies Educators and Tech Enthusiasts!

    The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Technology Community will be hosting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, August 2nd to support teachers as they prep for the coming school year. We've invited Tim Lent of New Visions for Public Schools to present on the global history curriculum they have developed as well as teacher John Wasmund from East Bronx Academy to talk about how he's modified and implemented this curriculum in his classroom. Their techniques and approach are not so specific to global history (and our tech tools most definitely are not), so all should feel welcome to tune in!

    In addition to these valuable resources, members of our community will then facilitate breakout sessions on game-changing technologies they use to support online, blended, and face-to-face instruction with their students. Rest assured that these tools are vetted and are not simply for show! They'll include things such as Google Classroom, Kahoot, and Nearpod. We'll be tailoring the final list of tools to the needs of those who sign up.

    Here's the info to register:

    Date: Wednesday, August 2nd

    Time: 2:30PM EDT

    Sincerely,


    The Tech Community
