CARL, Arend E. The value of History as a school subject in an age of science and technology. Y&T [online]. 2009, n.4, pp.III-XIII. ISSN 2309-9003.

If the answer is yes, what is the possible value of History in a society driven by financial forces and technological developments? Can technology be utilised to convey the importance of History? What is the possible contribution of technology towards the enhancement of the value of History and acquiring a sound historical and critical understanding of both the past and the present?
