A literature review of methodologies and strategies related to the introduction of ICT support in schools for teaching sciences. It is addressed to policy makers in education, school directors and teachers.
The FICTION project identifies science subjects as good examples where digital tools can increase students' understanding by visualizing abstract models and theories. For this purpose, the further development of teachers' digital competence is the most important need to be addressed. The project presented in this paper aims to enhance teachers' abilities to teach students to use digital tools for their own understanding of science, and to identify weaknesses and strengths in digital tools for teaching. The understanding of how and why digital tools are used increases knowledge among teachers for further professional development, necessary for future professional needs.
