Commentary: Revisiting "Guidelines for Using Technology to Prepare Social Studies Teachers"
Hartshorne, Richard; Waring, Scott M.
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v15 n2 p201-208 2015
In Hicks, Lee, Berson, Bolick, and Diem (2014), the authors revisited and revised a series of principles focusing on the preparation of social studies teachers for using digital technologies in the classroom, originally presented in the inaugural issue of "Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education" (Mason et al., 2000). This commentary aims to extend dialog associated with the updated guidelines, through an enhanced discussion of each of the four revisioned principles within the context of time, technology, and teacher education. The authors' efforts to more effectively guide the preparation of social studies educators in the utilization of technological applications in more useful, efficient, and appropriate ways is readily apparent and appreciated.
