Abstract: The paper explored the availability of information and communication technology (ICT) resources and the extent to which these resources influence the use of ICT in teaching Social Studies. The study setting was in the Awutu Senya district of Ghana. A descriptive survey design and quantitative approach were adopted for the study. From a target population of fifty-seven (57), 46 were sampled from which 39 participated in the survey. Means and standard regression were employed for the investigation. The testing of hypothesis was made possible through the use of structured equation modelling. The study concluded that ICT resources were inadequate for teaching Social Studies and that the use of ICT resources in teaching Social Studies in the district was low. The reason was evident based on the low level of ICT resources in the district. The study also concluded that there was a positive significant relationship between availability of ICT resources and its use in the teaching of Social Studies.
