Science in the primary school curriculum

The role of information and communication technologies

Information and communication technologies are an important resource and tool for learning in science and are available in most schools today in an ever increasing number, range and sophistication. Children’s investigations and explorations can be enhanced by using information and communication technologies in recording and analysing information, in simulating investigations and tests that support scientific topics, in communicating their scientific information and findings, in collaborating with children in other schools in science investigations and in accessing a range of sources of scientific and technological information.
