Abstract

Technology is an innovation that can offer much to facilitate a transformative social studies approach. The paper discusses the potential for technology in social studies teacher education by providing survey and interview results and models and examples for successful integration. The suggestion is that technology can provide opportunities for empowering students and teachers, but meaningful, student-centered critical constuctivist approaches are vital. The model presented includes modeling and applying, reflecting, involving students actively, and developing a community of learners with a technology focus throughout the entire social studies education experience.
