ICT and primary science

The book includes several case studies from primary classrooms and each chapter includes practical suggestions for teachers.
The wide-ranging topics covered include: databases and spreadsheets data logging control technology ICT, drama and science school visits planning for ICT and science choosing and using software. ICT and Primary Science is an accessible and jargon-free resource for teachers and student teachers of primary science.
