This podcast is a recording of a presentation by 8th grade U.S. history teacher, Eric Langhorst, titled “Teaching History with 21st Century Technology.” This presentation was shared at the Midwest Education Technology Conference (METC) in St. Louis on February 27, 2007. The official METC conference program description of his session was: Learn how an 8th grade American history teacher has incorporated web 2.0 tools into the classroom to enhance the curriculum. Examples include MP3 studycasts, video editing to create a colonial news program, working with students from around the country on a book blog and online assessments. Almost all the appliations presented are free of charge and readily accessible.
