Authors: Wan Ng (University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia) 
Book Description:
We live in a society largely driven by science and technology. As more scientific and technological issues dominate public debates at national and international levels, it is important to ensure that our students become global citizens who are scientifically literate. However, many students have poor attitudes and low engagement levels toward the learning of science. This book puts forward an argument that we should capitalise on the affordances that digital technologies offer in enabling better science learning, the general technological interest and knowledge of young people and the motivating influence of technology for learning, to foster the development of scientific literacy in students.
