Abstract

This paper discusses the need for university faculty to effectively model appropriate and engaging uses of computer technology in teacher education courses. Preservice teachers need experience implementing meaningful ways to use available technologies in preparation of lessons and activities. Specific reference to infusion of technology in elementary social studies methods is explored through four methods course assignments which include software analysis, Internet site analysis, multimedia project creations, and website development. Findings indicate that overall, the students in this course evaluate themselves as competent in use of technology in the social studies content areas.
