Modules

Each module focuses on a single science topic and includes teachers' notes that support the implementation of the activities. They also include commentaries intended to develop teachers' pedagogical understanding of the new methods using ICT to investigate phenomena. These are included in the belief that the potential of software for securing learning gains depends crucially on the pedagogical actions of the teacher and they form a distinctive feature of the materials developed by the ICT for IST Project.

The sample topics have been chosen to illustrate the value of ICT to teaching and learning in biology, chemistry and physics in secondary schools. 
Topics fall into three main categories:
