The Role of Technology in the Science Classroom

Science provides a great number of opportunities to integrate technology into science curriculum. The technology ranges from the use of the graphing calculator and use of probes to the use of computers and analysis of data to the Internet. The integration of technology is so paramount that the TEKS require the use of data collecting probes in middle schools. Science teachers are encouraged to incorporate technology into their curriculum whenever the opportunity arises. Click here for an example of a scope and sequence for graphing calculator skills.
