ICT in IB Biology

Look here for a list of resources that may satisfy the ICT requirements of the 4PSOW. With the amazing resources out there, there are many opportunities for schools to address the ICT requirements without having to spend a lot of money. Some ICT tasks can incorporate two or more of these requirements at one time.

Here's a useful quote from the IB Biology Guide:
"Apart from sensors for data logging, all the other components involve software that is free and readily
available on the Internet. As students only need to use data-logging software and sensors once in the
course, class sets are not required."


Please add to this page of resources if you have the chance.
