Information Technology in Science and Technology Education. Developing Science and Technology Series.
Scaife, Jon; Wellington, Jerry
Science and technology are often presented and taught as two separate essences. When this is done, students as well as teachers are forced to attempt to develop the appropriate linkages. This book is one of a series designed to help teachers develop their science and technological education in ways that are both satisfying to themselves and stimulating to their students. Emphases are placed on providing an introduction to the use of information technology (IT) in science and technology education. The book partitions into three sections (Principles, Practice, and Issues and Policy) that contain the following chapters: (1) "IT into the curriculum"; (2) "Frameworks for IT use in Science and Technology education"; (3) "Introduction to the use of IT in school Science and Technology"; (4) CAL/tutorial uses: instructional uses of IT in Science and Technology education"; (5) "Simulations"; (6) "Modelling"; (7) "Databases"; (8) "Data-logging"; (9) "Interactive video"; (10) "Word-processing and desk-top publishing"; (11) "Spreadsheets"; (12) "Computers in technology laboratories"; (13) "Issues to be addressed"; and (14) "Issues for the future."
