Abstract

Social Studies teachers need to think critically not only about how technology can be used in their classrooms but about how technology influences American society. At the University of Colorado at Boulder, School of Education, we have developed an instructional format, dubbed the Mirroring Method, which juxtaposes a traditional classroom activity with a technology-integrated activity, and culminates with critical reflection via whole class discussion. Through this process, our preservice Social Studies teachers are provided with the context in which to study the relationships between technology and society and think critically about technology integration in their classrooms.
