MetadataShow full item record
The use of Information and Communication Technology-based science resources by selected teachers of Stage 3 students across New South Wales schools to enhance their science content knowledge was investigated.

Results indicated that the teachers did not engage with these resources to any substantial degree and confirmed science’s generally low subject status. Preparations for high-stakes testing are negatively impacting science-teaching. Teacher-participation rates in professional learning activities were low.
