The 17th and 18th centuries in Europe shaped modern western thought. This app, designed with the help of history teachers, uses beautiful historical maps and an engaging interface to introduce students to 30+ innovators in science, engineering, mathematics, literature, philosophy, religion and politics.
Seven collections of these historical figures from the 1400’s to 1800 introduce the Enlightenment, the Scientific Revolution and important changes to religion and politics. Articles and primary source documents are pulled to the screen and are updated daily. To help students make even more connections, photos and dictionary entries are just a tap away.
Suggested activities to make the most out of the app:
-- Identify Primary Sources pulled onto the screen.
-- Identify other historical figures to add to each section.
-- Summarize what events were taking place outside Europe.
-- Email a teacher or another student directly from the app with insights about the content.
Learning history through the individuals that shaped it is one of the best ways to enrich students’ educational experience. Please contact us with ideas and content to add to this app. If you are an educator interested in having an app customized for your curriculum, visit www.panafold.com.
