IMPORTANCE OF INTEGRATION OF PEDAGOGY AND TECHNOLOGY IN SCIENCE TEACHING

Chaitali Sarangi, S. Mishra

Abstract


This paper addresses the integration of pedagogy and technology in science teaching. For a teacher to grow professionally continuous effort is required.  To prepare students for the science and technology for the future, the current science education reforms ask science teachers to integrate technology and inquiry-based teaching into their instruction. Good teaching starts with reasoning and continues with imparting and involving. To make effective pedagogical decisions regarding what to teach and how to teach it, teachers should develop both their Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) and pedagogical reasoning skills. Here the role of science education, the aim of science education, purpose of science education, changing trends in science education, meeting the changing needs in science education, role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in transforming teaching and learning, the link between ICT and pedagogy has been discussed. At the conclusion it states that though integration of technology and pedagogy is essential for better science teaching but a balance between pedagogy and technology is required to avail the greatest benefit.
