chapter  9
Using ICT to present the findings of scientific investigations
Pages 16

Throughout this book we have continually stressed the importance of the contribution that ICT can make in supporting the key scientific investigative skills. The interactivity, provisionality, and the speed and automatic function that the computer brings can make a huge contribution to the teaching and learning of all aspects of primary science. However, ICT can also be used effectively to communicate the results of scientific enquiry to as wide a range of audiences as possible. This is of vital importance, as a complete investigation should not only consist of the experiment itself and the findings, but just as important, also show the reasons for the experimentation and give a justification of the results.
