ABSTRACT

A vision of a modern world can be hardly conveyed without Information and Communication Technology (ICT) recently having a powerful impact on all areas of life. The application of the latest ICT in the educational process raises new possibilities for both a teacher and a learner, enhances the quality of provided education and makes the educational process more adjustable. Effective source of the information nowadays is the Internet. It has to be stated that the Internet possibilities in the teaching process are insufficiently used. On the other hand, in principal there are no reliable studies, which would reveal the actual situation in this field. Therefore, the object of our study is the usage of the Internet for teaching physics. The main aim of the study is to analyse the situation of the usage of the Internet for teaching physics and highlight the hindering/encouraging factors of its usage in the teaching process. The study employed expert inquiry. The type of expert inquiry – “Delphi study”, containing several experts’ inquiries (stages). Research has shown, that the Internet in teaching physics is not used in due volume. The majority of problems are connected with material (including information) resources (lack of websites, computers, etc.) and the competence (methodical, information, etc.) teachers of physics.
