WHAT TECHNOLOGY PLAYS SUPPORTING ROLE IN LEARNING CYCLE APPROACH FOR SCIENCE EDUCATION
There has been a movement nationally over past several decades to integrate technology into extent curriculum. This is true both at the K-12 level and in higher education. The purpose of this study is to show what role science education has played in this effort (i.e., what documents, research or associations provide positions on technology usage) and what role technology should or could play in a learning cycle approach in the light of current research. In this study, first of all, the concepts of technology and educational technology including a rationale for the use of technology in education were examined in historical perspective and then what relationship between “Learning Cycle approach” and educational technology in science education was showed. As a result, how we can create technology-based curriculum in our learning cycle approach and how we, as teachers, can use technology in learning cycle approach will shown.
