Social Studies Resources

Technology helps change the student/teacher roles and relationships. Often the student is familiar with the technology, and the student must teach the teacher. The teacher becomes the mentor and the guide. Technology integration promotes project-based learning styles. It engages students in their learning processes. Students acquire and use higher-order thinking, analysis, and problem solving. They take responsibility for their learning outcomes. Teachers become guides and facilitators. Technology lends itself as the multidimensional tool that assists the process.
