Developing and Implementing

In some classrooms, teaching methods have evolved little over the years. Enrolments in subjects like science have progressively declined and the persistent use of outdated teaching methods has often been associated with this. In less than a decade, the Internet has emerged as potential tool to vary classroom routines. Its use in high school science classrooms is still in its infancy. In this study Getsmart, a website was developed and implemented in junior science and senior classrooms in a blended learning environment in a Queensland State School. Students accessed this resource periodically at school and also from their homes. Quantitative data collected by using the Web-based Learning Environment Instrument (WEBLEI) (Chang & Fisher, 1998) suggested that students had positive perceptions of such an environment. This result was substantiated by qualitative data gathered through student surveys.
