"Power Corrupts, PowerPoint Corrupts Absolutely": Why Digital Technologies Did Not Change the Social Study's Classroom
Clare, Michael
Canadian Social Studies, v40 n1 Sum 2006
The dreams and predictions of a digital classroom never quite materialized in the social studies history area. For a variety of reasons teachers keep the technology just outside the door peeking in but never truly welcomed. Not welcomed because of the nature of courseware initially offered, not welcomed because the technology was advanced for the sake of technology itself and was imposed on the teacher. For teachers to invite digital technology in, attention should be on the curriculum, the teacher's delivery of curriculum, and how the technology can assist and advance deeper understandings.
