VIDEO: Teaching History with Technology
Dr. Steven Hoffman, professor of history at Southeast Missouri State University, is using cutting edge technology to help students understand key historical concepts. Hoffman structures his lessons around an interactive simulation that allows students role play as leaders of various countries in the conflict. The simulation encourages students to think critically about key historical concepts by experiencing the consequences of important decisions, and many find that they learn things they did not expect. It is one of many ways that Southeast is taking advantage of the latest technologies to provide students with an exciting and robust learning experience.
