Teaching Civics in a Digital World with Karalee Wong Nakatsuka and Laurel Aguilar-Kirchhoff – Easy EdTech Podcast 252

In this episode, I chat with ISTE authors Karalee Wong Nakatsuka and Laurel Aguilar-Kirchhoff. We discuss the common misconception that civics is confined to social studies classrooms. You’ll hear strategies from their new book, Bring History and Civics to Life, to help infuse civics across subjects with the help of EdTech. If you’re interested in fostering a sense of community and empowering students to view themselves as citizens of the world, this episode is for you!
