Meaningful Integration of Technology into the Middle School Social Studies Classroom.
Szostak, David
This paper describes a computer integration project implemented with two sixth-grade social studies classes. First it outlines and discusses the following goals: (1) integrate technology meaningfully into the classroom setting; (2) supplement the existing social studies curriculum; (3) enable students to learn to use computers responsibly; and (4) provide students with opportunities to gain computer skills. Next, the planning phases are discussed, which include: (1) looking at the curriculum requirements and deciding on the subject matter; (2) selecting which technology to use, and (3) developing the project. Four lesson plans are then presented: (1) "Teaching Responsible Computing"; (2) "Teaching the World Wide Web"; (3) "Teaching HyperStudio"; and (4) "Completing the HyperStudio Stacks." Presentation and assessment requirements are also provided, as well as tips to help such projects run smoothly. Appended are reproductions of student work; the Web Page, and supporting documents.
