The chapter on technology covers not only discussions on the applications of technology to advance science, but also the latest educational technology to promote learning in science classrooms.

With a new emphasis on the constructivist theory of learning, here is a thoroughly updated edition of this classic text...one whose popular two- part presentation effectively integrates practical teaching methods and activities with substantive scientific content appropriate for children ages five to twelve. The Seventh Edition features expanded coverage of key topics, including computer use in science classrooms, teaching of LEP (Limited English Proficiency) students, increasing home-school cooperation, use of cooperative learning techniques, and working with commercial multimedia science programs. As before, Part I addresses the importance of science in elementary education and develops competency in skills particularly well-suited to teaching science. Part II presents scientific subject matter, and shows how it can be successfully taught using the techniques explained in Part I. In addition, Part II presents hundreds of lively, involving, concrete experiences and activities for presenting science to children in a way that conveys its meaning and its relevance to their lives.
