Abstract

This study investigated three exemplary social studies teachers and their use of technology in the classroom. Literature on facilitators and barriers to technology use helped to frame the study and clarify research questions. A case study methodology was used to gain insight into these teachers' classrooms and describe the process in which they attempted to integrate technology into their instruction. Extensive classroom observations, interviews, and teacher materials provided the data to complete this investigation. This study suggests that it is instructive to focus on social studies teachers in typical classroom situations where they have had to manage with limited technological resources. Despite numerous barriers, these teachers engaged their students in a number of compelling activities using technology.
