Abstract

As a past teacher of Leaving Certificate Physics in Ireland, the researcher has experience of working with learners of the subject who frequently found many of the concepts on the syllabus difficult to grasp. Currently in the USA, instructors of High School and First Year College Physics are taking advantage of widely available web-based technologies to develop interactive Java applets called physlets to better explain complex Physics concepts.
The aim of this paper is to investigate the role that information communication technology (ICT) in general, and physlets in particular, can play in the teaching and learning of Physics at Leaving Certificate level in Ireland.
To achieve this aim, this paper will describe the development of an interactive physlet based lesson tailored for the Irish Leaving Certificate Physics syllabus, will describe the implementation of the lesson with current students of Leaving Certificate Physics, and will evaluate the use of this lesson as a teaching method or learning aid in the classroom.
