Bhavana, A. R.
Journal on School Educational Technology, v6 n2 p25-29 Sep-Nov 2010
The National Council for Social studies defines Social sciences as the "integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence". At the elementary school level, social studies generally focuses on the local community and family. By middle and high school level, the social studies curriculum becomes more discipline based and content specific. It includes various fields which involve past and current human behaviour and interactions such as sociology, history, political science, economics, religion, geography, anthropology, and civics. A student will learn about social customs, cultural heritage, and history of society. This education will train the learners to develop a genuine interest in and urge for, preservation of what is good in our culture and improvement of existing socio economic cultural set-up. In the present scenario teaching/learning of social studies as a subject is often considered as boring. Technology can be used to enhance the understanding of social studies. Map marking is one of the important activities in history from primary class itself. Gaining mastery in the map marking skill is a task included in the curriculum. Programmed instruction is one of the effective methods for imparting map marking skill. The proposed study has been undertaken to find the effectiveness of programmed learning material for teaching map marking skills for students at high school level.
