Abstract

The aim of the paper is to discuss the results of the research in the field of using multimedia , ICT, in teaching and learning Physics in the Czech Republic. The first part of the project was realized in 2005, where the analysis of available multimedia resources and their use at schools was done. Evaluation criteria for multimedia materials were summarized. According to the findings in the second part of the project courses for physics teachers in using ICT were created. Basic tools for computer measurements (data processing, procedure management), basic tools for modelling and simulations (including internet tools); work in a virtual laboratory, especially in applets/physlets, work in a distant laboratory, ability to use it effectively, and knowledge of appropriate freeware, shareware and software were presented. There were for example courses: Interactive Physics in teaching physics, Mathematica and Mathematica CalcCenter in teaching physics, Digital phototechniques in laboratories and technical subjects, The word processor, LaTeX for teachers of sciences. The project was evaluated, results of the reliability and validity of the courses will be discussed.
