Abstract [en]

The larger Nordic project (GNU) aims at developing innovative cross-border teaching models in different subject domains i.e. math, language, science and social studies/history. This paper provides an in-depth description and analysis of how four social science/history teachers and their 70 students (5th-7th grade) worked together between November 2011 and December 2012. Previous research regarding use of ICT in history education in primary schools is limited (Haydn 2001, Lipscomb 2002) thus calling for contemporary investigations in this particular subject domain. The TPACK model, enhancing the combination of teachers pedagogical, content and technical competence (Koehler & Mishra 2006 and 2009) , was used as analytical framework together with nation specific curriculum and EU recommendations regarding students skills for lifelong learning (Recommendation 2006/962/EC).A range of empirical material was analyzed such as classroom observations, students video productions, texts and photos distributed and shared on a mutual blog, real time interaction (Adobe Connect) and teachers’ communication (e-mail, Google docs, wikis). The teachers tried out two ICT didactic models. In the asynchronous model, the major focus was on form and content of the video productions being shared whereas working with the synchronous model the major focus was on content and quality of the communication.Notwithstanding obstacles, cross-border collaboration provided added value. The nation specific differences triggered curiosity and motivation to produce digital presentations of history content to be understood by the students in the three nations and facilitating goal fulfillment in communication skills and digital competence. However, reaching subjectspecific goals in history persisted challenging.
