Science And ICT

  1. 1. Science and ICT 4 th July 2008 http://www.slideshare.net/juko101/science-and-ict/ http://scienceandictlinks.blogspot.com/
  2. 2. Science <ul><li>Science (from the Latin scientia , meaning &quot;knowledge&quot;) is the effort to discover, understand, or to understand better, how the physical world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding. It is done through observation of existing phenomena, and/or through experimentation that tries to simulate phenomena under controlled conditions . Knowledge in science is gained through research. </li></ul><ul><li>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science </li></ul>
  3. 3. ICT <ul><li>ICT: Information and Communication Technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The fusion of computers and telecommunications; a range of technologies for gathering, storing, retrieving, processing, analysing and transmitting information. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>http://www.futurelab.org.uk/glossary#ict </li></ul>
  4. 4. Ask questions, predict and hypothesise Observe, measure and manipulate variables Interpret their results and evaluate scientific evidence Planning: Word-processing Mindmapping Research: Internet CD-Roms Data-bases Collecting and manipulating: Data-logging Control technology Organising, presenting and recording results: Spreadsheets Databases Data-logging Blogging Photos and film Publishing: Word-processing Mindmapping Blogging Powerpoint Film Comparing results with other people’s: Internet CD-Roms Data-bases Wikis
  5. 5. Role of ICT <ul><li>ICT as a tool </li></ul><ul><li>ICT as a reference source </li></ul><ul><li>ICT as a means of communication </li></ul><ul><li>ICT as a means for exploring </li></ul>Futurelab - Literature review in Primary Science and ICT – S. Ball (2003) ICT that Works (Primary Science Review)
  6. 6. Electronic Microscope Video-clip
  7. 7. Electronic Microscope <ul><li>Look at fingers, ears, nose and tongue </li></ul><ul><li>Investigate fingerprints - sellotape chalk black paper. </li></ul><ul><li>Look at seeds; take time lapse pictures of seedlings growing. Teacher’s TV prog. </li></ul><ul><li>Forensics - compare soil samples from the treads of different people's trainers. </li></ul><ul><li>Evaporation of salty water using time-lapse </li></ul>
  8. 8. More Microscope Ideas <ul><li>Time lapse pictures of ice melting or chocolate cooling. </li></ul><ul><li>Take photos of a tooth that has been put in coca-cola, over several hours. </li></ul><ul><li>Observe mould and yeast growing </li></ul><ul><li>Elastic bands – at rest and stretched </li></ul><ul><li>http:// www.kented.org.uk/ngfl/subjects/science/intel/ideas.htm </li></ul>
