Technological Thinking and Practice in the Social Studies: Transcending the Tumultuous Adolescence of Reform
Berson, Michael J.; Balyta, Peter
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, v20 n4 p141-150 Sum 2004
The authors reflect on the evolving role of technology in the field of social studies and compare the tumultuous adolescence of technology integration with future trends in teaching and learning. The discourse contrasts the past developments with ongoing innovation and efforts to promote the diffusion of emerging applications in the social studies. Suggestions to transcend the pubescent state of technological thinking in the social studies and nurture its dynamic potential are explored.
