Why Isn't That in Our Textbook? Global Connections for Historical Understanding

 

Your Name and Title: Cameron Paterson (@cpaterso)


School, Library, or Organization Name: Shore School


Co-Presenter Name(s):


Country from Which You Will Present: Sydney, Australia


Language in Which You Will Present: English


Target Audience: K-12 History teachers, educational leaders, students


Short Session Description: Global connections can help students move away from a predetermined notion of history and enable them to view history as a continuous process of interaction between the present and the past.


Full Session Description: History is a contested subject. It is often used to define and distort heritage and values at both a collective and an individual level. By helping students to connect globally and listen to each other we can enable them to see behind the veil. My key premise is that global connections can help students move away from a predetermined notion of history and enable them to view history as a continuous process of interaction between the present and the past. History is about identity and historical truth is interpretive. Global connections help students break out of the straitjacket of single identities by teaching them to listen across borders. This session describes my fledgling attempts to connect my Australian students with Turkish students in order to examine the World War One Gallipoli campaign. It shows how global connections can develop students' historical understanding.

Hi Cameron, the title of your session is so appropriate. Great to see the Australian contingent getting involved with presentations for the GEC12.

Hi Anne, thanks for leaving a message. I'm looking forward to the conference.

I'll have to listen to this one afterwards, the time zone is not going to work, but sounds fascinating. Cheers! Kristina
