Appy Hour: Social Studies
October 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Cost | Free
Event Description | The October Appy Hour will be hosted in conjunction with the AIU Social Studies Symposium. The theme of the event is Inquiry at the Heart of Social Studies. This symposium is being held in response to the interests of schools and districts who wish to renew and rewrite their Social Studies curricula so as to embrace the needs of a contemporary interactive pedagogy while confronting the challenges of our modern society.
This Appy Hour will be run as a breakout session at the symposium, exploring 20 social studies apps in 20 minutes.
Background | The Appy Hour series is an informal, half-day workshop that takes place each month around a content-area or instructional theme. Often teacher-led, these sessions are designed to provide participants exposure to numerous free or inexpensive mobile applications, followed by time to explore how the applications can be integrated into classroom instruction.
