Problems and Possibilities of Web-Based Instruction: Transforming Social Studies Methods and Practice
National Council for the Social Studies Annual Meeting,
This paper focuses on the use of Web-based instruction in social studies methods. The paper examines how Web-based instruction can transform teaching and learning and explores the problems and possibilities involved with electronic classrooms, including Web-supported instruction. Based upon an earlier study involving online instruction, that Web-based instruction (comprehensive online instruction) and Web-supported instruction (teacher meets class but instruction is supported by the Web) can be transformative enterprises meeting the high expectations of teaching and learning for the instructor and student. The James Madison University (JMU) in Virginia served as a case study for examining Web-based instruction for social studies methods courses. It describes the University and explains how this particular type of instruction is used in different courses. The paper concludes that the possibilities of Web-supported instruction in social studies methods classes are infinite, but cautions that significant problems are to be encountered for a smooth electronic experience between teacher and student.
