Interesting, Cool and Tantalising? Or Inappropriate, Complicated and Tedious? Pupil and Teacher Views on ICT in Science Teaching
Willshire, Michael
School Science Review, v95 n350 p127-134 Sep 2013
In a relatively short space of time, classrooms have become full of computers, gadgets and electronic devices. Technology will only continue to become more sophisticated, more efficient and more abundant in schools. But how desirable is this technological revolution and to what extent should it develop? To measure the effectiveness and popularity of ICT activities in the classroom, a questionnaire was designed to gauge opinions and attitudes of teachers and pupils. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected through questionnaires from 15 teachers and 99 pupils at a secondary school in Merseyside. The results show that ICT undoubtedly plays a key role in teaching and learning but loses its appeal if used too often. (Contains 4 tables.)
