With designs to guide both aspiring students on the advantages and avenues to researching and searching for educational tinged information, AcademicInfo was created in 1998 by Michael Madin.

Bearing witness to the lack of authoritative educational internet resources, while a student of comparative religion at the University of Washington, Mike believed an alternative to Google was needed for those thirsting for subject area specific information.

AcademicInfo, while still some way off Mike's initial vision, aims to cover all aspects of education. From Accreditation, Test Preparation to guides on respective subject areas, AcademicInfo will also provide current and aspiring students with a myriad of degree and courses for those looking to enhance their professional credential as well as those seeking personal development.

The educational spectrum is vast and multifaceted so acting as a conduit, AcademicInfo is able to bring together the best educational institutions and programs they offer directly to you.

NCSS defines social studies as "the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence." Within the school program, social studies provides coordinated, systematic study drawing upon such disciplines as anthropology, archaeology, economics, geography, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, and sociology, as well as appropriate content from the humanities, mathematics, and natural sciences. In essence, social studies promotes knowledge of and involvement in civic affairs. And because civic issues--such as health care, crime, and foreign policy--are multidisciplinary in nature, understanding these issues and developing resolutions to them require multidisciplinary education. These characteristics are the key defining aspects of social studies.

In 2010, NCSS published National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies: A Framework for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment. The revised standards, like the earlier social studies standards published in 1994, continue to be structured around the ten themes of social studies. However, the revised standards offer a sharper focus on Purposes; Questions for Exploration; Knowledge (what learners need to understand); Processes (what learners will be capable of doing); and Products (how learners demonstrate understanding). NCSS standards ensure an integrated social science, behavioral science, and humanities approach for achieving academic and civic competence that can be used by social studies decision makers in K-12 schools.

The NCSS framework consists of ten themes incorporating fields of study that correspond with one or more relevant disciplines.
