Event description

Description

NHICE will host a workshop for educators on Surfing in the Age of Fake News on Friday, October 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m at St. Anselm College in Manchester. Presenters include Sam Wineburg, Ann Hadwen of Educational Design Studio, and Concord High School Media Literacy teachers Elizabeth York and Heather Houellette-Cygan.

Dr. Sam Wineburg, PhD, (pictured right) is a professor in the education department at Stanford University and Director of the Stanford History Education Group. Dr. Wineburg’s recent empirical study at Stanford University, How Young People Make Decisions about What to Believe on the Internet, was featured prominently in national media with outlets including NPR and The Wall Street Journal. Teachers across the U.S. are using lesson plans developed by PBS to discuss the findings of the study. Dr. Wineburg described the study with his co-authors in Why Students Can’t Google Their Way to the Truth. The article was featured in a widely-read K-12 education trade magazine, Education Week. The full arc of Dr. Wineburg’s scholarship is characterized by his commitment to improving historical and civic education. This is exemplified in his widely-cited work Historical Thinking and Other Unnatural Acts (2001), and more recently in his work Beyond the Bubble in History and Social Studies Assessments (2013). Dr. Wineburg is the Margaret Jacks professor of education and a professor of history (by courtesy) at Stanford University, Stanford, California.

Ann Hadwen of Education Design Studio will present in the afternoon on Creating Performance- based Assessments in Civics.
