New educational technologies have been regularly introduced and hailed as ‘game changers’ in schools. In the early 20th century, film and radio were introduced as resources in schools and now include mobile devices and associated applications (or apps), interactive white boards and other online facilities such as virtual field trips and collaborative writing platforms. Educational technologies have frequently been promoted as a panacea for student engagement but there has also been an alarming gap between claims about what using new technologies can achieve and clear evidence of enhanced teaching and learning. This chapter explores resources that primary school science teachers and children can use. It presents a theoretical framework that can inform the use of existing and emerging digital educational technologies, or what we refer to as learning technologies.
