Social studies curricula launched

Today, the education technology and services company Pearson announced myWorld Social Studies and myWorld History, two social studies programs that offer digitally robust content.

myWorld History, a middle school curriculum available immediately, and myWorld Social Studies, an elementary curriculum available for the 2012-2013 school year, join the myWorld Geography program to bring blended learning opportunities to students.

The program encourages students to make personal connections with the content through storytelling, the oldest means for conveying knowledge, but with a digital twist. Research shows that such connections help students retain and comprehend information.
