Exploration 2 into ICT integration – Science

It seems to me that some of the difficulty in teaching science is related to the abstract or complex concepts that can be difficult for children to visualise.  I intended to find some resources to help with this visualisation and concept development.  I discovered that there are many, from digital magnifying visualisers that connect to the IWB, to real time video of animals in habitats.  I decided for the purposes of this blog, to refine the resources to space science.  I discovered a fabulous website: solarsystemscope.com.  This interactive site provides students with an opportunity to explore the solar system in 3D and includes useful tools and information.  My colleague Erin, in her blog, Space Science – Apps for shrinking the solar system, provides more links to resources for teaching space science and even provides an aligning content descriptor from the Australian Curriculum.
