Teaching by Example: Integrating Technology into Social Studies Education Courses

Journal of Computing in Teacher Education Volume 20, Number 4, ISSN 1040-2454


This article primarily focuses on how one social studies teacher education faculty member incorporated technology into a series of social studies education courses. The integration involved both a technology-related project for students to complete and the modeling of technology use to facilitate learning. The article describes the project and the three forms of modeling that occurred. It then reports on the impact of this integration. Most students reported that the instructor's modeling of methods and resources encouraged them to use technology in their teaching. Evidence in students' microteaching, discussions, coursework, and classroom teaching support their statements. (Contains 1 figure and 2 footnotes.)
