Overview

Throughout this book, the authors emphasize that primary science is at its best as a practical, hands-on experience for children. When ICT is used in an integral way, it can enable practical work to be done at a more sophisticated level, helping children to make sense of their findings.

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.
