This podcast was developed as part of an elementary-level Clark County School District Teaching American History Grant. The three-year grant will fund six modules per year with each module focusing on a different era of American history and a different pedagogical theme. This podcast focuses on Native Americans of the Colonial Era and Technology Integration in Elementary Schools. Participants in the grant are third, fourth, and fifth grade teachers in Clark County (the greater Las Vegas area), Nevada. Teaching scholars include Drs. Michael Green and Deanna Beachley of the College of Southern Nevada and Dr. Christy Keeler of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. As part of this five week module, teachers meet on campus on two occasions and the remainder of their work is completed online. The culminating experience for the module is participant development of virtual museums. These are asynchronous PowerPoint slideshows that have the appearance of a virtual museum. Users can move throughout the "museum" learning about different aspects of Native Americans in each "room." Grant participants will base their virtual museums on one of ten assigned themes including Native American women, economics, housing, European encounters, impact of western religions, relations between African Americans and Native Americans, slavery, food, cultural exchange, and religions. The video feeds that accompany this podcast are available on iTunes.
