Abstract

It is assumed that when used effectively technology can improve the preparation of social studies teachers and improve student performance. The central issue is not the quantity of the focus on technology, but rather the quality. In our enthusiasm, we appear to have side-stepped the need for developing a clear networked group of social studies educators who are capable of coordinating research and developing program that yield products proven to impact social studies outcomes. Preparing teachers to engage their students in the process of historical inquiry must begin with the researchers, teachers, historians, and technologists working alongside each other to create projects that support historical inquiry in the history classroom. This symposium illuminates an ongoing federally funded initiative of a networked group of social studies teacher educators who are designing and evaluating the potential of current and emerging technologies to support historical inquiry.
