Computers and information technology have changed the world and affected millions of lives in ways that no one could have foreseen. There is a general agreement that computer technology is a crucial resource in education today. Computers and ICT can bring benefits such as : use of productivity tools; in- teractive teaching packages available on CD for different subjects; access to internet and thousands of online databases; distance learning facilities; links to other schools or colleges; and special facilities available for students with disa- bilities- for example partially-sighted students may be able to change text sizes and background colour. The list is long.
This module picks on some of these benefits and provides a basic platform to multi-media applications in the teaching and learning of mathematics and Science at secondary school level.
