Abstract

The use of new technologies becomes increasingly and more relevant role in Science learning. The practice with personal computers has passed to being experienced in virtual environments and social networks. But with the emergence of mobile technology in education, a new change has occurred. The portability of such devices opens many possibilities in the learning methodologies and gives easily access to information. In this paper we describe and evaluate two activities carried out with the IPad as a learning tool. The activities were developed with 35 students at 1st course of Upgrade School from an educational centre of Granada. While the first group of them used an app for molecular structures visualization and interactive applets available on internet, the second group experimented with early gas laws. The results show that the use of these learning tools along with appropriated methodological approaches can promote on students meaningful learning.
