Summary

0C-4, Peters, Joseph M., Gega, Peter C., Science in Elementary Education, 9/E/ This book presents a constructivist approach to the content and methodology needed to be an effective teacher of elementary science.

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. For science teachers at the elementary school level.
