Abstract

Social studies teacher education faculty members who effectively integrate technology in methods courses provide students opportunities to explore applications for the K-12 classroom and to consider how technology is changing the way we teach and learn. As social studies teacher educators, one of our roles is to model appropriate uses of technology for our preservice teachers. Take for example the scenario in which preservice teacher Rob Dent collaborated with a classroom teacher to develop a technology infused unit of study, called "Who Wants to Be a Pioneer?" (see http://k12.albemarle.org/murrayelem/white/frontier / ). This student experienced designing and teaching a lesson using primary sources, while at the same time, he learned Web page development and design and classroom management techniques. Dent explains what technology skills he used in developing this project in videos 1 and 2 .

This is just one example of preparing social studies teachers to use technology appropriately. We offer the following five principles as guides for the appropriate infusion of technology in social studies teacher preparation programs.
