USING INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN SCIENCE. By Sue Neale. Evans Brothers. pound;10.99

This book contains 25 photocopiable worksheets that require key stage 2 children to use ICT in a variety of ways. Within science topics commonly taught at this stage, the children must, for instance, collect data, test ideas, interpret evidence and present information. They may edit text, set up a database, create a bar chart, search a CD-Rom, or use a sensor. There are teacher's notes and a glossary and answers. If used independently, their language may make them better suited to older children.

Douglas Newton is Professor of Education at Newcastle University
