The Role Of Technology In Science Education

Perspectives On Technology In Science

Perspectives on technology in science and society is a free online journal that publishes interdisciplinary research on science, technology, and society. It is a forum for critical analysis of science and technology and fosters an integrated understanding of the sciences. Perspectives contains theoretical essays, case studies, and review essays on a wide range of topics. It also features essays on specific aspects of science and technology. The focus of this journal is on how science and technology impact society and how they can benefit humanity.

Assessment Of Technology Integration In Science Classrooms

Until recently, few studies have evaluated the role of technology in science classrooms. However, many teachers have asserted that technology can make the science classroom more engaging and motivate students to learn. While the research is still limited, this research may help teachers better understand how to integrate technology into their lessons. The findings presented here may be useful for teachers interested in furthering technology integration in their science classrooms. Further, it may help researchers identify pedagogical principles that are most important in evaluating technology integration in science classrooms.

Tools For Integrating Technology In Science Classrooms

The use of tools for integrating technology in science classrooms can help teachers meet the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). NGSS describes the practices and processes of the classroom science curriculum and is the central dimension of the observation protocol. When using tools for integrating technology into science teaching, educators must consider how the technology will integrate with authentic science inquiry. There are several methods that educators can use to effectively integrate technology into the classroom.2
