Why Learn History (When It's Already on Your Phone)?
Sam Wineburg, Professor
October 13, 2020 ~ 7:30 PM EST
Why? Because while Google can do many things, it can't teach discernment. Today's young people learn history not by going to their local library but by scrolling on their phones. In this webinar, Sam Wineburg will tie the principles of historical thinking to the challenges we and our students face in separating fact from fiction on the Internet.
