Geocaching: Mixing Tech and Curriculum
Presentation Site
Geocaching is a worldwide recreational activity enjoyed by GPS users. It involves a GPS user hiding a "cache" and posting the exact coordinates so other GPS users can come on a "scavenger hunt" to find it. There are caches of all kinds for all ages and are usually placed in interesting locations in your area that you may not know about.
The concept of the game can be easily adapted as an engaging way to have students discover concepts and information in any curriculum. With a little work you’ve integrated technology, a little exercise, and whatever topic you want to explore, giving multiple ways to learn subject matter.
Use a ‘Multi-Stage Cache’ to test the comprehension of your students from the story your class just read; or perhaps you could have your students cooperatively solve a math puzzle to find the hidden container; or even peruse the ‘EarthCaches’ on Geocaching.com - caches from around the world based on various geology and earth sciences.

Technology Tips, Tricks, and Tools for Teaching Social Studies
Presentation Site
Do you want a tech tip, trick, or tool to enhance your teaching of Social Studies? This presentation will introduce you to a variety of such tips, tricks, and tools, such as online interactive history games, web sites, and other technology tools that will engage your students in history, government, geography, and culture. This session will be most beneficial for 5th – 12th grade teachers and will have a primary focus on U.S. History/Geography and World History/Geography, although all Social Studies teachers can benefit from the ideas and resources presented.

You will learn how to access “Primary Sources” from online sites, including the Library of Congress, and be given strategies for using them frequently in your lessons. In addition, you will be shown how to access lesson plans, teaching materials, and activities available for teachers and students, from a variety of other sites. Two such sites include Colonial Williamsburg (U.S. History), and the Goethe Institute (the geography, history, economy, and culture of Germany). Ideas on incorporating resources and materials into your Social Studies classes from these sites will be shared. The presenters will also identify professional learning and study opportunities available for you, as teachers, which will enhance and enrich both your learning, and that of your students.
