Abstract

Digital primary sources allow social studies teachers and students the opportunity to analyze and interpret past events. As a result, teacher educators have espoused the benefits of digital primary source use, and have pushed for the inclusion of instructional technology into methods courses. In this study of eight world history and world geography teachers, the results showed that training in and of itself had little to no effect on teachers' use of digital primary sources. The most important factor in whether teachers used digital primary sources was whether they had access to the proper equipment.
