Low-cost Science Teaching Equipment, 3

Report of a Commonwealth Regional Seminar–Workshop, Lae, Papua New Guinea, 19–30 March 1979

image of Low-cost Science Teaching Equipment, 3
Education materials developed during the past two decades have tended to stress student participation and learning by doing. Consequently they require an adequate supply of equipment for effective implementation. Yet, to date, very little progress seems to have been made in school science teaching. One of the major reasons is the non-availability, inadequacy or non-utilisation of equipment.



This is a report of a seminar – the third and final part of a series of such meetings on the teaching of science – concerned with the means of making the knowledge of science available to as many school pupils as possible through the local production of science teaching equipment, keeping the cost as low as possible.

Evaluation of the Seminar/Workshop

Evaluation is looked upon in different ways by different people. But basically, evaluation of educational programmes is undertaken to clarify issues. Alkin (1970) refers to evaluation as the process by which relevant data are collected and transformed into information for decision making. Because evaluation normally implies use of systematic processes of data collection, it has also been referred to as ‘objective reporting’.
