Therefore, when these skills are stimulated in the classroom, students would be prepared for the world beyond the school doors. This would help students to socialize with others, co-operate in problem solving, share responsibility, respect for property and appreciate diversity. According to Piaget, developing an understanding of the world around you is a lifetime process that begins at birth (Hearron, P.F. & Hildebrand, V., 2010). The theory explains the tools and processes used by children as they develop into an individual who can reason and think using hypotheses, hence the importance of cognitive development.
Technology is beneficial throughout the world. “Technology can be used in facilitating collaborative learning. Smartboards can be used inside of the classroom to engage student learning, laptops and mobile devices are for personal use inside or outside the classroom” (Paddick). In schools, teachers use technology to help students on powerpoint, google classroom, even contact parents for achievements, homework updates or creating assignments. “Software, such as Prometheans ClassFlow allows teachers to plan interactive, multimedia-rich lessons and create assessments and assignments that can be delivered across a range of technologies for use in and out of classrooms” (Paddick).
Introduction Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) in education helps to teach current student valuable knowledge and skills via computing and communications tools.

Science education has aimed to help students to gain an understanding of as much of the established body of scientific knowledge as is appropriate to their needs, interests and capacities and to develop students’ understanding of the methods by which this knowledge has been gained and our grounds for confidence in it (Millar, 2004). Given the potential benefits, the provision of quality science education to all children will have far reaching consequence on a country 's development prospect. Therefore, based on aim of science education at all levels practical activities in science education are regarded as one of the necessary elements to promote understanding of scientific principles. The importance of practical work in science is widely accepted
