Abstract

Research and development activities in the education environment are always the prime focus of the teaching-Learning process for their sustainable Outcomes for humankind. In the past two decades, science and technology are emerging subject areas. As per the need of the times, and knowledge-seeking behavior through different modes and mediums of Information Communication and Technology ,have  effectively occupied place in teaching -learning. Focusing on issues and challenges related to Teaching-learning processes and outcomes, National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) developed  Learning Outcomes document for Secondary School level in Nine Subject areas. Science is also one of the  subjects  for both Classes IX and X at Secondary Stage. Access and use of ICT can give effective inputs to reduce the gap of the traditional method of teaching-learning  of Science education and contribute to  the attainment of Learning Outcomes.  The effective use of ICT in terms of Learning Outcomes in Science is needed to make learning  simpler and application oriented. This paper discusses the Learning Outcomes and its important features, leveraging ICT for achieving Learning Outcomes in Science at Secondary Stage and applying Assistive technology to perform Physics, Biology and Chemistry activities and experiments. Further, to attain Learning outcomes through ICT, important steps have been discussed . The suggestions are put forth for the attainment of Learning-Outcomes.
