Techlogy in the Middle and Secondary Social Studies Classroom introduces pre-service teachers to the research underpinning the effective integration of techlogy into the social studies curriculum. Building off of established theoretical frameworks, veteran social studies teacher educator Scott Scheuerell shows how the implementation of key techlogies in the classroom can help foster higher-level thinking among students. Plentiful, user-friendly examples illustrate how specific educational tools-including games, social media, flipped classrooms, and other emerging techlogies-spur critical thinking and foster authentic intellectual work. A rigorous study, Techlogy in the Middle and Secondary Social Studies Classroom provides a comprehensive, up-to-date research framework for conceptualizing successful, techlogy-rich social studies classrooms.
