This paper will present and discuss in detail the results from a longitudinal study of social studies teacher educators about the diffusion of technology. Data was obtained from the third distribution of a national survey that explores the beliefs, practices, and efficacy of social studies teacher education faculty members in the preservice experience. The results of the study provide valuable findings that will inform the audience on the diffusion of technology in the field of social studies teacher education over a seven-year time span. It will also present suggested recommendations for teacher educators and policy makers.
