Abstract [en]

The use of information and communication technology in teaching is an excellent way to visualize processes as well as promote active learning in natural science, hence providing an additional dimension in teaching. KompLIT (Competence Enhancement of Teacher Education Information Technology) is a Swedish project that aims to increase the competence in pedagogical information technology for both teachers and teacher students. As part of this project the software Sunflower for Science has been tested and evaluated by both teachers and teacher students. Sunflower for Science consists of 26 programs in physics, chemistry and biology and uses an interactive approach that engages students with an activity-based learning. The outcome from the evaluation is that Sunflower for Science is very user-friendly, it promotes deeper learning as well as increases the students’ attitude towards chemistry.
