Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Provides a comprehensive guide to and analysis of the expanding role of technology in the social studies curriculum and classroom.

An original analysis of the expanding and evolving role of technology in the social studies curriculum, Interactive Technologies and the Social Studies fills a significant void in the existing literature.

"The issues dealt with in this book are important to both social studies educators and to people interested in educational uses of technology. I like the concrete examples, the references to national guidelines and standards in the social studies, the currency of material about the Internet, and the concern with teaching about controversial issues--especially concerning use of the Internet." -- Barbara B. Levin, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

The contributors come from diverse backgrounds with specializations embracing the areas of social studies education, software development, computer science, and visual design. A common fundamental interest binds them together--the development and application of emerging technologies that can be used to enrich and enliven social studies instruction.

Addressed are the creative applications of emerging interactive technologies that are computer-based, such as distance learning, the Internet, interactive multimedia, and intelligent tutors, as well as the social and practical issues they have spawned. Simultaneously, the authors nest their analyses within the context of the key question: How can technology contribute to the development of effective citizens?

Peter H. Martorella is Professor of Social Studies Education at North Carolina State University. He is the editor of the SUNY Press publication series, Theory, Research, and Practice in Social Education. Among his many books are Teaching Social Studies in Middle and Secondary Schools and Social Studies for Elementary School Children: Developing Young Citizens.
