Abstract: Although professionalism is at the heart of every profession, it is doubtful if it has reached its apex among Social Studies Educators in Nigerian Primary and Secondary Schools. To achieve this, the study undertook the conceptual method of ascertaining the views of scholars in the subject area in a hi-tech society. On analysing their views, it was discovered that there is complacency in promoting professionalism among educators of Social Studies in the country. It was also gathered that there has not been significant efforts by Teacher Associations or the government in promoting interest in the teaching of Social Studies in Primary and Secondary Schools in the country. The need to promote greater professionalism among educators in that field especially in the area of information technology, giving incentives to educators in the area and promoting teacher-awards were recommended for optimum performance.
