Dr. Ted Larson is social studies department chair at Lincoln Southwest High School in Lincoln. Previously, he was a teacher and athletic coach at Lincoln Southeast High School in Lincoln, where he developed a technology-integrated social sciences curriculum, establishing a fully wired multimedia computer lab for his history and U.S. government classes. As a result, his students were able to bring new life to their presentations and projects. Dr. Larson's computer lab was a model for the district and he developed instructional strategies for using computers in the district's American history classes. He also provided training to help fellow teachers gain proficiency in using technology. Dr. Larson wrote the curriculum for the University of Nebraska's Department of Distance Learning and is a participant in the Center for Civic Education's Summer Institutes.
