Historical Influencers – creating social media accounts for famous people from history

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It’s time to bring traditional “living history museum” experiences in to the 21st century. What might Meriwether Lewis or Cleopatra’s Twitter feeds look like? If you tuned in to Marco Polo’s YouTube channel, what sort of “Lives” would you find? Can you picture the selfies Rosa Parks or William Shakespeare might have shared on Instagram? How many followers would Mozart have on TikTok?

In this session, we’ll share ideas for how your students can put themselves in the shoes of influencers from any era & express their ideas through social media platforms that are popular today. Walk away with resources you can put to use in your intermediate, middle school, or high school classroom in a wide variety of units.
