					                                     Coordinator’s Audit of ICT in Science – Key Stages 1 & 2
In Science ICT can enhance teaching and learning by enabling pupils to:
     visualise and understand scientific processes and systems record, present and analyse results
     explore relationships
     find information and carry out research
     communicate ideas
                                                                                                                                            BECTa (http://curriculum.becta.org.uk)
