Brief : Technology helps us in more optimal achievement of learning  goals. Students in a class have different skill sets and technology should help us reach out to all children in learning and understanding the concepts. The challenge today is that we look at technology just as hardware. Instead, we should be looking at technology from the angle of improvements that it can bring inside the classrooms.
While we deliberate on the important question of what we are going to teach, we should also ask ourselves why do we really teach  Science or any other subject. We teach Science with the intention of imparting the knowledge of the real world to the child. The child is  instinctively curious about the environment and Science helps him develop a sense of reasoning. So science is all about ideas, concepts, and theories that are being used to interpret the world. As Einstein once said, “Science should be taught by forming  connections between reality and physical theory”.
