This volume focuses on how contemporary science education has been affected by recent developments in educational technology. More specifically, this reader deals with changes in the ways in which science is taught and learnt due to developments in information and communication technology (ICT) (for example, the increased use in science of multimedia, web-based learning and communication technology).
The reader includes papers on the theoretical and practical considerations of using ICT in the teaching and learning of science. Examples are drawn both from higher education, science in schools and open and distance education. The reader discusses approaches to learning and teaching in science accessible over the web, and science learning mediated through disc-based resources. Emphasis is given to formal learning contexts. These approaches includes the role of such current developments as access to practical work delivered over the web and future prospects for research in this area.
