Abstract

In this paper we will discuss the Social Studies component of the Impact Grant, a multiyear grant to develop content-specific applications of technology in teacher education. We believe that effective integration of technology into the social studies can better promote the goals of education in a democratic society by making learning experiences more active and authentic and by promoting critical thinking. Examples of the materials we have been developing based on this premise are presented in this paper along with plans for evaluation and dissemination of these materials.
