Using technology is indispensable in the 21st century. While teaching science, information technology tools are used for research, surveys, quizzes as well as classroom record keeping. Teachers use technology to engage students, to make lessons stimulating or exciting, to demonstrate real world application of concepts and to make science fun.
Students practice using technology to become technologically savvy. This skill is vital in whatever a student’s future academic or career goals may be. By demonstrating and teaching how to make the best use of technology, teachers are setting the foundation for students to succeed in a constantly changing technological world.
