Information communication technology (ICT) is one of those automation induced revolutionary changes in education that reached the schools in the advanced world in the sixties. Irrespective of the fact that information communication technology (ICT) has aroused controversies from its adherents and opponents, it has continued to be looked at, from the perspective of Social Studies classroom teaching-learning process, as an effective innovation. Our society today is reliant on technology for so many things; paying bills, staying in touch with family, researching simple questions and even checking out at the grocery store couldn’t be done today without our technological resources. It stands to reason that as Social Studies instruction prepares students to be productive members of society, educational institutions must pay more attention than ever before to information communication technology. This paper focuses on the essence of ICT in teaching Social Studies instruction, instructional improvements related to the use of ICT in Social Studies, the objectives of ICT implementations in our educational system, the causes of low ICT application in teaching Social Studies instruction and finally the place of Social Studies in solving the problems of ICT in the teaching and learning of Social Studies.
