Student presentation with the use of technology as part of model teaching in history curriculum in middle school in Saudi Arabia

As researchers, teachers work in the field of education and sense the problems
 faced by middle school students in Saudi Arabian history curriculum. Although history is
 important in the life of a student, students often find the subject boring and not engaging.
 This and other reasons encouraged research to be done in order to develop history
 curriculum and teaching methods in an effective and modern way. A major finding of this
 research is that student presentations with the use of technology help students develop
 research skills and increase their general interest in the history curriculum. This method is
 a modern way to get students involved in their own learning, instead of depending on the
 textbook, like the traditional way of teaching. Also, the research shows through a survey
 of both teachers in the United States and in Saudi Arabia that student-led presentations with the use of technology are an important way to teach students about history. The results show that the largest percentage of teachers agrees this way. This paper will explore the advantages and benefits of student presentations with technology.
