Write a short note on role of ICT in science with examples.

Ans. Collection of scientific data.-  ICT tools are used to record and store measurement electronically. Eg: Computer controlled microscopes and instruments, digital video recording are used to record and store measurements/

Visual presentation – Facilitate better understanding of concepts and process. Instant feed back provided by spreadsheet enables learners to see the effect of changing values. Eg:using spreadsheet and  Graph tools for data handling and analysis, data can be presented in more visual and clear form.

Modeling and simulations for demonstration and prediction- Animation enables teachers to demonstrate experiments and environments that would not otherwise be possible. Simulations  eliminate experimental errors and increase visual impact. Eg : Planetary system.

Interactive education and information resource. -  Models are simulated and explore a wide variety of physical phenomena. Eg : Simulation videos from internet.
