SHORT DESCRIPTION: How Could War Look Different? An Immersive Online Re-enactment and Re-Creation of Warfare. In How Could War Look Different? students come together both within and across national borders to re-live conflicts that have taken place in the past and to re-enact them online with historical accuracy. They utilize multiple mediums of technology including Video Conferencing, Wikis, Blogs, Online Podcast Interviews, Digital Photography, Digital Video, Google Maps, Google Earth and more in order to communicate all that objective history and subjective bias offers with regard to the greatest of conflicts: warfare. After re-creating the past according to the historical record, students will re-write those conflicts with an eye toward how the war could have been fought differently. Students will look at what pre-war cultural, political, economic and social factors would need to have been created in order to prevent the destruction from starting in the first place. The greatest challenge of all awaits them. Could war have been turned to peace and if so, how? How Could War Look Different? can be adopted to any war and utilized by any nation at any grade level. Please join us for a discussion of how best to implement this collaborative project.
