This is a review of outstanding social studies educators who are effectively using the Web and technology to
  • empower students as content creators and publishers;
  • connect and collaborate with other classrooms, around their state and around the world;
  • promote change and global understanding; and
  • find primary sources on historical and current events.

We'll also discuss a number of social studies Web resources that many educators are not yet familiar with, including sites created by other educators to share resources with their fellow educators.

We gave this presentation on November 11, 2010 at the Annual Conference of the National Social Studies Supervisors Association. We've already been invited to give an updated presentation at the same conference next year.

Here is a link to a blog post containing a link to this presentation, articles and sources cited therein, and supplementary materials.
