Embedding of ICT in the learning and teaching of physics: what teachers say about the use of computers in physics lessons
Issue 336 | Page 119 | Published Mar 2010
In order to understand the realistic use and impact of ICT on physics teaching in Ireland, a survey was used to gather information on teacher attitudes, confidence and concerns. Practical problems in the regular use of ICT affect some more than others. Factors such as availability of equipment and time to learn new skills (and interest in those skills) play their part in determining the extent to which ICT merges smoothly into physics teaching, and what relevance it is perceived to have.
