The Impact project is an inter-institutional collaborative effort among social studies
    educators across the county. Started in 1997, the Impact Project continues to develop 
    and evaluate materials that best promote the seamless integration of technology into
    social studies teacher education.

    The goal of the Impact Project is to facilitate and accelerate change in the nation's teacher
     education programs, encouraging university faculty to incorporate appropriate uses of
     technology in teacher preparation programs. The Impact Project promotes appropriate 
     uses of technology in specific content areas. While the Impact Project targets faculty
     members who prepare teachers, the materials developed may  be used by practicing
     teachers.
 

     The following projects are examples of the work that is being done in the field of social 
     studies
