From our Educator Guest Blogger Series A popular misconception about history is that it is outdated and only deals with the past, thus newer technology does not apply. This could not be further from the truth. Technology has always been an integral part since the beginning of human history. For example, the creation of stone tools led to the development of agriculture and domestication of animals which eventually led to development of written communication. Now, Social Studies teachers need to embrace technology to enhance their lessons and connect with the twenty-first century learner. In fact, according to the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate , technology is one of the World-Class Skills needing to be mastered.
