Why Learn History When It’s Already on Your Phone

Tue 10/29/19 @ 6:00 PM PT

Join us for a book discussion with Stanford Professor and Author Sam Wineburg on his newest book, Why Learn History (When It’s Already on Your Phone). The program will conclude with an audience Q&A and a book signing. The California Historical Society Store will have books available before and after the talk.

For years now, Wineburg has been studying, assessing, and critiquing our teaching of history, and speaking about what he’s learned to groups large and small. The Stanford History Education Network, which he founded, was recently tapped by Google to create a pioneering program designed to improve young people’s digital literacy. Wineburg knows what works and what doesn’t when it comes to helping young people—to say nothing of adult citizens—dive into the welter of information and misinformation that threatens to drown us and come out with the facts.
