Engaging Future Finnish Science Teachers in Using ICT through Educational Design Research
Abstract: Information and communications technology (ICT) is an essential part of modern science and science education, and therefore ICT should be used more diversely in education. Teachers require more suitable pedagogical models and skills for utilizing ICT in their classrooms. Science teachers’ pre-service training has a key role in the future of science education. This brief paper will present an introduction to our modern chemistry teacher training program, in which the educational design research approach is used as a tool in engaging future chemistry teachers to integrate ICT into their chemistry classrooms by supporting them in building their technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK).
