Sam Wineburg - Why Learn History (When It’s Already on Your Phone)

If we want to educate citizens who know how to separate fact from fake, we have to give them critical thinking tools. It’s easy to look at the consequences of historical ignorance and despair. Sam Wineburg is here to tell us it doesn’t have to be that way. The future of the past may rest on our screens. But its fate rests in our hands.

Sam Wineburg is the Margaret Jacks Professor of Education and History at Stanford University and the author of Historical Thinking and Other Unnatural Acts.
