Teaching and Learning Science and Technology - ECH430

This unit builds on the knowledge gained in previous units, further developing student's knowledge of the principles and practices of teaching and learning science and technology. Students explore a range of strategies for assessing children's scientific understandings, and use knowledge of curricula, resources and teaching strategies to design and implement lesson sequences to enhance the growth of children's scientific thinking. Students examine information and communication technology as a tool for learning and explore issues related to the use of technology in the classroom. The integration of science and technology into other learning areas and differentiating curriculums to meet the diverse needs of learners are also addressed.
